The denim jacket never truly goes out of style. It may change in length, cut or shade, but the denim jacket is a fashion staple that is both stylish and comfortable. The beauty of the denim jacket is that it not only serves the functional purpose of warding off the Autumn chill, it also looks great with a variety of wardrobe choices. It also transfers nicely from day to evening. This article will offer a few ways to make the most of that great fashion staple – the denim jacket.
Layer A Denim Jacket Over A Printed Maxi Dress.
Not only does it make sense to wear those flattering maxi dresses as far passed the summer as possible, it makes a great companion piece to the denim jacket. Instead of bare shoulders and open toed sandals, wear that maxi dress with a cute pair of flats or ankle boots and add your denim jacket to look seasonally appropriate and very stylish too! Add chunky jewelry in colors that complement those in the dress and you are all ready for a brunch date with friends or an early Christmas shopping trip with your partner.
Wear A Fitted Turtleneck Under Your Denim Jacket.
A chic form fitting turtleneck looks great underneath a denim jacket. A pair of cargo pants or jeans with sheepskin lined boots makes for a very cozy and cute outfit perfect to attend a football game, go pumpkin picking or attend a bonfire party. Be sure the turtleneck is not too thick or ribbed enough that it bunches up under the jacket and adds pounds.
Add A Denim Jacket Over Your Long Sleeve Tee And Peasant Skirt.
Long peasant skirts are a fun change from pants and look great with a neutral colored tee shirt and denim jacket. Choose ankle or knee length fitted boots as your footwear. A few strands of beads adds to the outfit with bohemian flair. Keep your hair loose and free to complete the relaxed, but pulled together look. This outfit works great for everything from running errands to casual day at the office. If it is an exceptionally warm Fall day, you can skip the long sleeve tee and wear a Cami underneath instead.
Wear A Denim Jacket Over Black Dress Pants And Solid Colored Top.
If you want to look polished and professional, but still want to add a bit of a relaxed vibe, choose your denim jacket for outerwear over your blazer. A great pair of flats or heels keeps the look professional, but the addition of the denim jacket keeps the overall look from being too conservative. It adds a bit of fun and youth to the look and will surely garner you many compliments for the unexpected addition of the denim jacket.
Complete An All Black Ensemble With A Denim Jacket.
Dressing in black from head to toe can be slimming and chic, but can also be a bit drab and boring without an addition of a piece that breaks up the monotony. A short black skirt, black tights, black top and black boots can be jazzed up with a denim jacket. If pants are more your style or more appropriate for the event, layer your denim jacket over the pants, long sleeve top or turtleneck and boots. A strand of turquoise beads or a large pendant creates a focal point to the outfit and really makes the ensemble pop.
Denim jackets are a great fashion staple that will be worn time and time again. Whether you choose dark or light denim, you will surely find many outfits in your closet that will great with the addition of this tried and true piece of outerwear.
