Hello friends! Today I want to share with you my five favorite ways to jean jacket! I really believe that a jean jacket is a staple in any wardrobe even if you are rocking a capsule closet. Whether for warmth or purely style, a great jean jacket is a piece that I constantly reach for in my closet. My denim of choice is my thrifted Eddie Bauer jean jacket from Goodwill that I scored for $7 but I also picked up one by Mind Code last winter that I wear on occasion.
This might be my personal favorite way to wear my jean jacket and comes in handy all the time during the spring and summer months. It is so effortless and looks like you put a lot of effort into a nice outfit. Lately I have really loved this sunflower dress (obviously from Goodwill because where else do I get clothes) and dressing it up or down either with a pair of Chacos or chunky heels and a floppy hat.
Considerably the most trendy way to style a denim jacket, trouser have been a very popular piece recently. I got this pair from an online store called Romwe for less than twenty dollars. A denim jacket dresses down the more professional look of these linen pants, but it makes something a little fashion forward a little more wearable for those who are fashionably shy.
I rock this one a little too often. Perfect for traveling or a day where you don’t want to put too much effort: leggings, tennies, and a T-shirt accompanied by a jean jacket is the best way to get a minimalistic stylish look. Throw on a cool band tee or a hat to kick it up a notch.
4. Distressed Denim
My black distressed jeans were a fall and winter staple for me this year and what better way to take this opportunity to throw a little color and add some denim. This outfit is tried and true because there are a million different combinations of sweaters and shoes you can wear this with. My personal favorite is this yellow turtleneck that I got at a thrift store with either converse high tops or some sort of bootie. This outfit never fails
5. Canadian Tuxedo
Denim on denim on denim! Some people have this look down to a T, but I on the other hand struggle with this look occasionally. Pairing a good pair of jeans with a rad jean jacket can really make a statement. This look has really made a comeback and is perfect when you are wanting to showcase your favorite pieces.
These are some of my favorite ways to wear my jean jacket. I am such a fan of this piece in my closet so much so that I wear one of these looks AT LEAST once a week. Not only does a good denim jacket have an insanely practical use of none other than warmth, but holy cow it is totally cute. Bring out your old friend and show them some love because hey its almost warm enough where a jean jacket is all you need.
