This style guide is all about how to style a denim jacket because everyone's gotta love a denim jacket. I'm going to show you three different types of jackets and the clothes that I like to wear with them.

Denim jacket style

Frayed denim

Here I'm wearing a cropped jacket, and I love the little fray details because they make the jacket a little bit edgy and add an interesting element to it. I'm wearing it with a gray sweater which I feel is the perfect color for Spring. It's really soft and cozy, and this color just gives me all the vibes I need to get into the Spring season.

Here I'm wearing a long denim jacket. Sometimes I have a hard time styling long denim jackets because I feel that they make me look a little bit boxy. I usually try to wear them with a romper or a dress so that I can add wedges or heels that will elongate my legs and won't make me look as short. I'm wearing the jacket with this cute little romper. Polka dots are definitely in, and the outfit gives off a fun and relaxed vibe.

The last outfit is with this denim jacket, which is slightly oversized, but I like how oversized it is. I also love how it's this different type of jean material, and it's really cute. I'm wearing it with this gray dress, it's just a normal shift dress, but it's really comfortable. This look is super easy and trendy as well.

Those are the three looks that I put together for you. Denim jackets are such a wardrobe essential, you can easily throw them on with whatever you're wearing, and they will finish your outfit off perfectly. What does your favorite denim jacket look like?
