Ready to get started? Check out a couple of ways to style a jean jacket for a little style inspo from the experts!

Add a Belt

If you have a denim jacket with a longer silhouette, especially if it falls past your hips, you may want to consider a belted look for something unique and original. Any oversized outerwear gets a lot of help from a minimalist belt that accentuates your waist and ensures an upscale, contemporary approach.

When considering how to wear this jean jacket, remember that you don’t need to shop for a jacket with a belt! Instead, use any thin belt you already own with a jacket or shacket to completely transform the vibe of your look.

Denim on Denim

While denim on denim isn’t a brand new way to style a jean jacket, this type of ensemble has still evolved over the years. In the past, many people liked the matching denim on denim look that showcased similar washes for both pants and jackets. When we do the denim on denim look, we opt for utterly different denim washes that still work together flawlessly. You can even mix and match denim and denim-like materials, like Tencel™ or chambray, for lightweight summer style.

When you’re experimenting with how you style jean jackets, consider adding a few unique colors to your collection, like beige, black, or rose.

Style It Bold

You already know that Velvet Heart considers denim a neutral, so why not get playful with your style when you opt to wear something bold and colorful with your jean outerwear? We love to see a little more print play in our store with camo patterns, ikat prints, and tie-dye designs. How you style your jean jacket is all about personality and self-expression. If you’re feeling loud and proud, incorporate colors in your blouse and bottoms instead of in your outerwear.

Some women don’t like having any prints in their wardrobe but still look for ways to incorporate color into their ensembles. Consider keeping everything neutral but letting your accessories do all the talking. Bold jewelry, purses, scarves, and other accessories can still stand out against the neutral backdrop of your denim jacket.
