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

This is a great spring outfit idea with a denim jacket. You could do a midi skirt, mini skirt, pencil skirt, or maxi skirt, and I did a bodysuit but you could do a regular t-shirt.

Outfit #2: Wear your denim jacket with black jeans

I don’t love the Canadian tuxedo look, personally (blue denim on top and bottom), but I do love pairing my black jeans with my blue denim jacket.

I chose a graphic tee with this outfit and a fun felt fedora to add a cute accessory, but you could do a blouse underneath or a solid colored t-shirt!

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.

Since the top of my outfit is so casual, I chose black leggings and sneakers on bottom to keep the whole outfit casual.

Outfit #4:  Layer your denim jacket over a spring dress

When it’s still a little too cold for spring dresses, add a denim jacket and pair it with some light colored ankle boots or flats.

Denim jacket outfits on other body types

Usually in my 4 ways to wear it every week, I round up some outfits from other women. But today I’m teaming up with my friend Caralyn Mirand, who is a blogger and curve model, and has a similar style and aesthetic as me.

She’s on a mission to help women become confident in their skin, and especially wear the right bra with her #ProperlyFittingBraClub.

She’s so inspiring and incredibly gorgeous and talented, and you will love her. Go check out four ways that SHE wore a denim jacket on her blog!
