5 chic ways to wear a denim jacket

Denim jackets are the backbones of our closets, and they’re pretty much the key to creating many different outfits. I can’t think of a more versatile piece that you can wear on weekends with joggers, to work with a great black trouser, or to a summer bbq with a pretty dress. From sunrise to after hours, the outfit options are endless — and if you own several, I’m certain you’ll wear them non-stop through summer and fall!

Today’s post is about 5 chic ways to wear a denim jacket. Options include an ecrú style (I love this Rails one); a cool, washed black; and of course, any shade of denim. Go-to brands include Levi’s, L’Agence, Rails and Paige. You can’t go wrong with any of these, and they look great with everything. Keep reading to see some outfit inspo and new ideas on how to wear your denim jacket. I hope you get inspired and create some new outfits!

P.S. I’ve been writing a lot lately, so I’m including two recent blog posts (here and here) you might like to read (or re-read). This week’s Reels Video showcased this dress, and you won’t want to miss it. It was just re-stocked at Nordstrom – so don’t wait.

Favorite denim jacket options

The L’Agence Janelle denim jacket is a best-seller (available at Nordstrom, Saks and Revolve), and I know some people who own several colors. It’s a splurge, but the fit is amazing, and it’s nice and soft. This one by Frame is also great, and lately I’ve been loving ones by Rails. I’ve tried this one and this one — and I’m sure you’ll like them.


Under $100 options

For affordable options, there’s a great selection of Levi’s here and here. Also check out this brand at Nordstrom, and BlankNYC here and here are also faves.

You really can’t go wrong with jackets from Topshop or 1822 denim. Both are well-loved by many, and the washes are great.
