3 Creative Ways To Wear Your Denim Jacket

Everyone loves a denim jacket, but we often leave it in the closet for being too predictable or mundane. Given its versatility and the need for additional layers in the colder months, we come up with some creative ways to bring it back into heavy rotation.

    For an additional layer that won’t get lost under a chunky knit, reach for an oversized denim jacket. Keep things interesting (and reduce bulkiness) by doing only one button at the top, and allowing your cuffs to peek out.

    Stylist Note: The hemlines of your top layers should match, ideally hitting at the hip.

    Instead of wearing a shirt, button your denim jacket all the way up and layer it under a coat or leather jacket.

    Stylist Note: This works best with thinner, more fitted styles as they will tuck into high-waisted pants or skirts easily.

    Only your granddad still calls it a Canadian tuxedo. Layering a denim jacket over a denim shirt is a great counterpoint to a ladylike skirt. It is also an easy way to add structure and polish to a casual look.

    Stylist Note: Make sure to wear two different tones of denim in the same color family (think: dark blue and light blue).
