HOW TO STYLE A JEAN JACKET
Ok let me just start this by saying that a good jean jacket is one of the best and most versatile articles of clothing you can have in your closet! Jean jackets are perfect whether you are dressing up a bit or keeping it casual. No matter the look you are going for, I have got you covered in this blog post with all the jean jacket style ideas!
STYLE A JEAN JACKET AROUND THE WAIST
Since I am almost always cold, I usually keep a jean jacket on hand at all times. But believe it or not, my favorite way to wear a jean jacket serves no purpose (like keeping me warm) other than it looks super cute! The first way to style a jean jacket is to tie it around the waist.
Dress it up: Style a jean jacket by tying it around the waist when you’re wearing a dress.
Dress it down: Going for that road trip look? Style a jean jacket by tying it around your waist when wearing some comfy shorts and a comfy t-shirt/tank top.
STYLE A JEAN JACKET OVER THE SHOULDERS
Over the shoulder is another great way to style a jean jacket. It gives off that whole 50’s sweater wearing vibe and is the perfect detail to complete an outfit.
Dress it up: Style a jean jacket over your shoulders with cute maxi dress.
Dress it down: Heading out to a baseball game? Style a jean jacket over your shoulders on top of non-jean shorts and a cute basics tee.
STYLE A JEAN JACKET WITH A SKIRT
Alright, alright so let’s get practical here and talk about the jean jacket styles that actually serve as a dual purpose to have you looking cute and keeping you warm.
Dress it up: Style your jean jacket with a body suit and midi skirt and your favorite pair of heals.
Dress it down: Is it casual Friday at work? Style a jean jacket with a cotton skirt and your favorite sneaks.
STYLE A JEAN JACKET WITH LEGGINGS
Ok so there really is no way to dress this up, but it’s definitely one of my go-to casual looks when I am out shopping, running errands, etc. It’s such an easy and effortless style if you’re in a hurry to get out the door.
STYLE A JEAN JACKET WITH SHORTS
Styling a jean jacket with shorts is such a great way to give you that super cute spring/summer effortless style look. Unless you know for certain how to pull it off, I don’t recommend wearing jean jackets with jean shorts, because you might end up with the whole Canadian tuxedo look that you weren’t initially going for.
Dress it up: Style a jean jacket with a dressy pair of shorts with some heels or wedges.
Dress it down: Style a jean jacket with casual cotton shorts and a relaxed tee and casual sandals.
These are a few of my favorite ways to style a jean jacket. If you follow me on Instagram you will see me in jean jackets pretty frequently, unless it’s summer because Texas summertime = 100 degree weather.
Use your imagination and have fun with the different styles because it’s amazing how many different looks you can create just with one jean jacket!
