I love the look of a classic denim jacket. A CDJ adds a little bit of “cool” to just about any outfit, and is a perfect Spring layering piece.
Two outfits with denim jackets…
Here I’ve styled with off-white boyfriend jeans, a striped tee and leopard print loafers. I love the look of a popped collar, and it also keeps that chilly breeze off my neck!
But if you wear jeans as often as I do, you may not always want to wear double (blue) denim. So a jacket in a wash other than classic blue is always good to have on hand as well.
I really like this longer version in a cream color. It’s comfortable, flattering, and easy to wear. If you prefer a look that’s less boxy, this one has a nice shape and curved frayed hem.
The classic blue jacket at top is one I’ve had for a few seasons now. The cream jacket was gifted by Chico’s as part of an ongoing Instagram collaboration. I’m wearing size 0P (4-6 Petite) in both jackets. What I like about both of these jackets (aside from the Petite sizing option) is that the fabric has a bit of stretch and is not stiff or bulky.
- Adding a denim jacket to classic/tailored pieces can create a more relaxed and modern look.
- Create a masculine-feminine mix by pairing a denim jacket with a romantic floral dress, or a ruffled top.
- Button up and wear your jacket as a mid-layer under a coat or vest, or tie a sweater over your shoulders.
- Of course you can wear double denim! I like this look best when there are some more refined pieces in the mix (like loafers instead of sneakers, a standout bag, a structured or silky top, some red lipstick).
Do you have a favorite style of denim jacket? How do you like to style it?
