I have a thing for denim jackets. All of them— every cut, wash, and style you can think of—I really don't discriminate. But the thing is, I don't have any sort of anecdote or romantic segue into how my love affair came to be. It sort of just, well, happened. I know deep down they're the most versatile jacket you can own and will never go out of style. I have a shearling-lined one, a classic-but-cropped denim blue one, one that's baggy and distressed, a white one… and the list goes on. The crazy thing is I still find myself eager to add more to my collection, like this dark oversize style from Amazon. (It's only $60!)
Now, I have no intention of trying to convince you with my words that denim jackets are a tried-and-true wardrobe staple, but I will prove it with these outfits I've put together over the last week. So without further ado, here are six ways to style a denim jacket.
I'm wearing this with…
The Drop Andrea Oversized Denim Jacket ($60)
Slip Dress + Loafers
The easiest outfit combo with the highest payoff.
