6 Ways to Style an Oversized Denim Jacket

In Fashion 36 views


If there’s one jacket to throw on over basically anything, it’s the denim jacket. But we’re not talking about the tight, cropped versions that we wore non-stop in the 2000’s. Nope, the new wave of denim jackets are oversized, vintage-looking, and anything but fitted. Which, hello, leaves more room for all the snacks, but it’s also a fit that can be tricky to style. It can go from cool to frumpy real quick, but here are 6 ways to do it right.

 

1. Over Your Shoulders With a Mini















 

When looking for slightly more coverage or to dress down a mini, lay the denim jacket over your shoulders. This isn’t the most practical style, but it offers an effortless vibe you’d see French girls wearing.

 

 

2. With Colors and Prints

The best thing about denim is that it goes with everything — especially a lighter, vintage-y wash like this. It looks good with white, black, colored, or printed pants, and really any piece of clothing underneath.

Obviously! Denim on denim looks equal parts cool and easy when done right. Look for denim of similar washes when pairing together, and keep things simple elsewhere. A striped shirt, a neutral tote, and sneakers provide the perfect weekend pairing.

 

 

4. Over a Tight Dress















 

Love the appeal of a tight dress but not wanting to show off your back side? Or living in fitted dresses while preggers? An oversized denim jacket is about to be your BFF! If your jacket is seriously oversized, this is a good way to still show off your shape while keeping things balanced.

 

 

5. Casual Date Night

Whether grabbing drinks at a local bar or somewhere equally as casual, oversized denim jackets easily dress down a date night look. And they’re a nice way to let your leather or utility jacket have a timeout. Denim instantly makes heels less fussy, all while feeling appropriate for a night out.

 

 

6. Adorned with Patches















 

If you’re into the patch movement, throwing a couple vintage band patches onto a denim jacket makes for the perfect concert jacket. It’s playful, cool, and will definitely make your denim stand out. We love the idea of embroidering your initial or a saying on the back, too.
