Denim is a fashion staple everyone loves, probably because denim is a versatile and timeless fabric. One of the most popular denim items is the jacket, whether in a simple design or something fancy with embellishments like pockets and buttons.

Do you have such a fashion item in your wardrobe? You can wear it over shirts or other tops. Denim jackets and vests are also popular as work clothes for people who work in industrial settings like warehouses.

Whether looking for a classic, retro look or something more modern and edgy, a jeans jacket is an easy way to spice up your look.

To start, choose a denim jacket that fits your body type. A loose-fitting one is a good choice for a more casual look. On the other hand, buy a slightly more tailored fit for a structured look. The fit should be snug but not too tight.

Here are a few tips on what to wear with a denim jacket.

1. Layer it over a t-shirt

It looks stylish when layered over a t-shirt. Choose a plain-coloured t-shirt for a classic, casual look. You can dress it up by adding a statement necklace or a scarf for a more polished look. A white tee is perfect to combine with blue or black denim. You can opt for a simple and classic tee or a graphic version for a more edgy style.

2. Wear it with a dress

A denim jacket makes an outfit more casual. Choose a dress in a bright color and pair it with a denim jacket for a fun and flirty look. We’re not saying you can’t wear it with dull or dark colors. No! It works with any dress. Add a pair of heels for a dressed-up look, or wear sandals for a more casual look.  

3. Wear it with shorts 

For a cute and comfortable look, pair a denim jacket with shorts. Even booty shorts look so good with a jeans jacket. Plus, add sandals or sneakers for a casual look. You can also pull out that pair of black boots you have shelved for a while.

4. Wear it with a skirt
