3 Simple Ways to Style A Denim Jacket

3 Simple Ways to Style A Denim Jacket

Jean jackets are a wardrobe staple. They elevate almost every outfit and add a stylish layer to your look! Sometimes it can be tricky to style a denim jacket, they can look chunky or unnecessary if styled wrong. I like to think of myself as a denim jacket connoisseur, so I thought it fitting to write a blog post going over 3 ways I would style a denim jacket. This particular jean jacket I'm wearing is a little different wash than most would expect, but I think that just adds to the outfit as a whole. So without further adieu, here are 3 simple ways to style a denim jacket!

Outfit #1: Biker shorts + Denim combo

Biker shorts and denim jackets are the combo that dreams are made of. Because biker shorts tend to run on the tighter side, a denim jacket can be a flattering layer to this type of outfit. A basic top and sandals complete this outfit perfectly.

Outfit #2: Dressin' It Up

These types of shapeless/swing dresses are all the rage right now, and adding a cropped denim jacket can create a defined waistline to any less form-fitting outfit. Summer style doesn't have to be painfully simple, you can always throw on a denim jacket to create more of a put together and thoughtful look. I would even consider adding a hat to spice up this outfit a little bit more, and Saltwatersare a MUST.

Outfit #3: A Bodysuit and Denim Love Affair 

My current favorite trend is bodysuits, so this outfit is one of my favorites. I love the shape it gives me and how trendy & stylish it makes me feel! Wide leg denim matched with a bodysuit, sandals, and a denim jacket is my new uniform. i cannot get enough of this look. You can recreate this outfit so easy too!
