We all have those staple items in our closet that we get so much repeat use out of. The jeans that make your butt look amazing. The LBD that’s been to weddings, happy hours, dates, and business meetings. The crossbody bag that fits all your necessities without being too big. The heels you can actually wear all day. Well, here’s another item to add into that group: the denim jacket.
Bonus: denim jackets haven’t gone out of style. Like, ever. So the denim jacket that’s buried in your closet from 1999 is probably still going to be exactly what you need! And if you don’t have one, get one that you LOVE, because you’re never going to want to part with that bad boy!
We hear this question a lot- how the heck do I style a denim jacket? Is it just for casual days? [No!] Can I wear it with jeans? [Yes!]. Leggings? Dresses? Scarves? [Yes, yes, and yes!]. There are SO many ways to wear a denim jacket, which might make it the most versatile piece of clothing in your closet.

While there are a million ways that you could put together an outfit including a denim jacket, today, I’m bringing you three of my favorite ways to style a denim jacket.
A Denim Jacket with Leggings
First up, leggings! Leggings and plaid tops are two of my go-to items for fall, so I obviously had to include them here. I’m always on the hunt for tops to pair with leggings that are long enough to cover my booty, and this one does just that! Add on a cute pair of booties, top it off with a denim jacket, and you’re set! This look can take you to drinks with the girls or to shakin’ it at a country concert [hello again, plaid!]. This look was made for fall.

A Denim Jacket with a Dress
Next, we’re dressing things up a bit! I love how throwing on a denim jacket over a dress can instantly change the look of the entire outfit. In this instance, it gave the dress a more casual vibe, while still looking super put together! So next time Shawn calls and says “I’ll be home in 10 and I’m taking you out for a night on the town” [hint hint, Shawn, it’s time for that call!], I know just what I’m throwing on!
A Denim Jacket with Jeans
Finally, I’m keeping it casual. This is the perfect get-up for these August and September days where mornings and evenings can be in the 50s and 60s, but midday the temperatures still hit 80s! A denim jacket quickly adds that extra layer you need whether you’re on the soccer field sidelines or running to the store to start stocking up on all things fall decor. While you can definitely rock denim on denim [style is all about what makes YOU feel your best], I chose a colored denim pant! This olive color is perfect as we start adding more boots and booties into the usual sneaker into the rotation!

Like I said, there are unlimited ways that you can make the denim jacket work, so next time you’re getting ready in the morning, throw on that old denim jacket that’s been hiding in the back of your closet.
