Trying to figure out how to wear a denim jacket with your outfits? It’s a perfect jacket as we head into spring, and I’ve got some simple outfit formulas that you can copy.
How to wear a denim jacket
A denim jacket is one of my favorite layers for the spring, and even though it’s still very much winter here (it’s supposed to get down into the teen temps this week!) I wanted to show you how to wear a denim jacket as we head into slightly warmer weather.
My favorite style of denim jacket
I own several denim jackets – an oversized boyfriend style, a stretch denim dark wash one, a sherpa lined version, and the light wash non-stretchy jacket that I’m wearing in the photos here.
My light wash denim jacket is by far my most worn of the four. The light color makes it feels very spring-appropriate, and the hip-bone length fit makes it perfect for wearing with skirts, dresses, and pants.
The fit of the shoulder seam is right on the point of the shoulder (that’s good and means it fits well!), and the side seams slightly curve inward toward the buttons like parentheses )( which makes it very flattering and not boxy.
Mine is very old from Gap, but THIS ONE is almost identical and super affordable.
4 denim jacket outfit ideas
Outfit #1: Wear your denim jacket with a skirt and t-shirt
Outfit #2: Wear your denim jacket with black jeans
Outfit #3: Wear your denim jacket with a hoodie underneath
I’m super into hoodies right now, and I love layering them underneath jackets. This is a great casual outfit, and keeps you a little warmer during the spring when it’s still chilly.
Outfit #4: Layer your denim jacket over a spring dress
