Even if we’re ready to toss our winter coats in the trash, that doesn’t mean we’re going outerwear-free this season. (BTW, it’s still freezing here in NYC. *crying cat emoji*) So if you’re wondering what to wear over your outfit for a not-as-warm-as-you-thought day or once the sun sets, we suggest a good ol’ denim jacket. The past few seasons have been all about the army green military jacket, and in typical cyclical fashion, we’ve now gone back to the classic denim look. Chances are you have this piece stowed away in your closet somewhere. (Didn’t we all own a denim jacket at one point in our lives?) But if you’re looking for an update, we’ve got three stylish ways on how to wear the denim jacket according to some of our favorite bloggers.
Here’s how to wear it:
1. Throw on a classic denim jacket (over everything, really). Starting to remember why you loved the denim jacket in the first place? Because it pretty much goes with any outfit you’re wearing. We also love how it can give off a carefree, casual vibe over a breezy tank dress. Pair it with some aviator sunnies and add a pop color with your sandals. Now you’re ready to enjoy spring!
2. Opt for printed denim instead. If blue denim isn’t your style, then go for a jacket with a floral print or geometric pattern. Who says printed denim is for your legs only? Keep the fun and vibrant look going with a pair of pastel-colored skinny jeans (or another print if you dare) and a metallic handbag.

3. Go sleeveless for the summer. A long-sleeve denim jacket might be a bit too uncomfortable once summer’s high temps arrive, so consider getting rid of the sleeves. You can either purchase a denim vest or go the DIY route. We like pairing this choice with a more feminine look like a short skirt and wedge sandals.
