Style Up The Denim Jacket

Style Up The Denim Jacket

I am a huge sucker for denim jackets. You might already know if you have read my denim jacket edit. Whether it is basic, painted, embroidered, super elaborate, whatever, a denim jacket is a wardrobe staple. Yet, let’s be honest, when you think about it, it looks more like a high schooler must have than a super elegant piece. So yes indeed, a denim jacket in itself does not look really elegant. It is denim after all. However, it does not man you can’t style it up.

Actually, I think wearing a denim jacket with a rather smart outfit will style it a bit down and make it an everyday kind of outfit. So how do you style up a denim jacket? As far as I am concerned, I think a tea dress does the trick pretty well. I got this address ages ago when I was still at university. It comes from H&M’s Garden Collection that had sold out so fast at the time that people were fighting over eBay to get a piece from the collection.

The dress as an impressionist kind of print with a lace beneath the breast and frill short sleeves. It is a really summary dress, super light and floaty. Moving onto the accessories. I think we can never go wrong with some classic black pumps. The Candy bag from Furla adds a bit of fun to this outfit.

What do you think of this outfit? Did you like it? Do you often wear denim jacket? How many do you own? How do you style them up? I’d be happy to know your thoughts!

I hope you liked this post.

    That is such a beautiful dress, and your denim jacket is perfect with it! I really like wearing a denim jacket with a dress, I’ve been wearing it a lot so far even though it’s only the first couple of weeks of spring! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far 🙂

    The Furla bag is so pretty! The colour is lovely.

    Love the denim jacket! Love the dress! Love the watch! And, love the bag! Love your style!

    What a lovely dress! And I love that adorable blue purse. I haven’t owned a denim jacket since high school, but now you have me wanted to shop for one this fall! 🙂

  5. September 14, 2017 / 4:35 pm

    This is such a cute denim jacket! And I love the watch!

  6. September 14, 2017 / 4:41 pm

    I love how colorful the dress is – it’s perfect for transitioning from summer into autumn. The denim jacket keeps the outfit casual and comfy! I personally match my denim with dresses too & occasionally with jeans but for the most part with dresses!

    I love my denim jacket and miss it as the months get colder. I love the vibrant colours of the dress and the design of the sleeves.

  8. September 14, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    I was so attached to my denim jacket this summer but now it’s getting colder I’m not sure it’ll be appearing in my outfits so much, double denim is not really my thing!

    I adore my denim jacket. I’ve had it for years, it’s originally from GAP but I got it at a thrift store for $1, no joke! The best price/wear EVER because I wear it ALL the time! Definitely love pairing it with lovely dresses to make them perfect for day time September wear, just like you’ve done here!

  10. September 14, 2017 / 5:31 pm

    I love your outfit! I bought a denim jacket ages ago but just can’t find a decent way to style it yet, this has motivated me to try again! I looove the bag too! xx

  11. September 14, 2017 / 6:26 pm

    I am loving how you have styled that jacket, that dress is just so vibrant and beautiful as well, I love the sleeves on it.

  12. September 14, 2017 / 6:43 pm

    Ooh I love the dress. So beautiful and girly. I think I own a denim jacket, it is cream coloured and I haven’t worn it in years. Maybe I can add some embellishments to it and put it in my rotation. Thanks for the ideas.

  13. September 14, 2017 / 7:36 pm

    I said all summer here in the UK I needed to add a denim jacket to my wardrobe and now I don’t think its weather permitting so next years goal is a must! You look fantastic and very summery! Love your style xx

    I think the denim jacket and that dress is a perfect match. You have a beautiful style.

  16. September 14, 2017 / 11:53 pm

    I just love denim jackets! And this dress is so pretty. I love all the colors. Pretty watch too!

  17. September 15, 2017 / 12:22 am

    Forget the denim jacket, that blue bag is the best. I like how it shines.

  18. September 15, 2017 / 1:47 am

    I am SWOONING over this dress — the colors and the print are so beautiful and it fits you like a dream!! And what a fun idea to pair it with a denim jacket and a light blue bag! It does dress it down and makes it work for so many more types of occasions!!


  19. September 15, 2017 / 2:10 am

    I always love a denim and print combo. Sometimes I’m at a lost for what to do with my denim jacket and I wonder if it’s run it’s course. This just helped me figure out ways to accessorize my jean jacket!

  20. September 15, 2017 / 4:58 am

    This is awesome – I showed it to my GF and she loved it! It’s always summer here in AZ lol

  21. September 15, 2017 / 9:14 am

    I love this outfit! I used to wear a denim jacket a lot but haven’t had one in years. Might have to make a little purchase soon xx

  22. September 15, 2017 / 1:01 pm

    This is such a great look! I am a sucker for a cute denim jacket, especially paired with bright colors

  23. September 15, 2017 / 1:25 pm

    Wow! Really liked this denim jacket and dress combination, specially the print of the dress is beautiful. Liked the watch too 🙂

  24. September 15, 2017 / 4:48 pm

    I love denim jackets! I was just thinking the other day that I needed to get one for the fall season! I also love your handbag, the color is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  25. September 15, 2017 / 5:00 pm

    I love denim jackets and I’ve passed that down onto my girls as well. You’ll always catch on of us in one. While I pair mine usually with whatever I’m wearing, my more fashion forward daughter will take care planning everything the she pairs together. She said ” her dress is to die for, like literally to die for mom.”

  26. September 15, 2017 / 9:40 pm

    You can never go wrong with a denim jacket. They fit well into many various styles!

  27. September 15, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    Love the outfit! I will admit I am a bit of a denim jacket hoarder…. I love to tie them around my waist with dresses, then I have the option of wearing it like that or putting it on if I get cold!

    I love how you can dress a denim jacket both up or down. That being said, I should really get one!

  29. September 16, 2017 / 2:53 am

    Okay, you’ve got me. Time for me to rescue the denim jacket out of hiding from my closet. It does look super cute with so many different styles! Pants, skirts, dresses…everything.

    I’ve couple denim jackets as well. I like to mix them up with dresses like you did and also with jeans on jeans. That Dress looks so good in you 🙂

  31. September 16, 2017 / 8:09 pm

    I’m a denim jacket kind of girl too. I love them! They’re so versatile, and I don’t know what it’s about them that they can make any outfit look more stylish! I like the way you styled it, the dress and accessories are beautiful.

  32. September 16, 2017 / 9:53 pm

    I totally love your styling! The denim is on point and I love the bag too.

  33. September 17, 2017 / 2:19 am

    I agree with the summery description of the dress. You looks amazing in it though. And the denim jacket goes with it very well.

    I love this. I have a denim jacket and I don’t wear it often because I don’t want to be too 80s but this is a great look that is modern with it. I am going to try to wear it like this! Thanks.

  35. September 17, 2017 / 5:09 am

    I love your dress! The colors are gorgeous. I’ve always loved wearing color, especially in subtle details. A perfect style for fall!

    Denim style will never get old!! It’s also one of my favorite!

  37. September 17, 2017 / 2:04 pm

    I really need to get a denim jacket into my wardrobe! Also love that handbag!

  38. September 17, 2017 / 2:07 pm

    I think denim jackets are so underrated! I love them but I don’t wear them ( i feel too restricted in my arms). They can really add a element to just about any style.

  39. September 17, 2017 / 6:17 pm

    This is a lovely outfit! I don’t have a denim jacket I have a lighter version on it which I love too and it’s easier for me to wear it here in super hot weather! But any moment I go back to a 4 season place with cooler temperature, this is going to be in my closet!

  40. September 17, 2017 / 7:04 pm

    I LOVE how you’ve dressed up this denim jacket and given it such an effortlessly glamorous and classy vibe! You’re so natural in your outfit photos too, that’s definitely something I need to work on because I always feel so awkward in mine! I’m not surprised that people were scrapping on eBay to get their hands on this piece! You look beaut!

  41. September 17, 2017 / 7:04 pm

    Such a beautiful outfit and I love your photos as well! I need that dress and definitely the handbag as well

  42. September 17, 2017 / 7:07 pm

    I’m surprised that I haven’t got a single denim jacket in my wardrobe *shock horror* but these pics are definitely persuading me! I love how they add such a summery touch… I’m kind of in denial of how short our summer was.
    I’d love to see you coordinate it for Autumn, though!

  43. September 17, 2017 / 7:07 pm

    I love my denim jacket! It’s more oversized but it’s great for Autumn when I want to wear a jumper underneath now it’s getting cooler. It’s so cool how you styled yours and you look great with the dress 🙂 Thanks for sharing your tips!

  44. September 17, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    I live in my denim jacket! They are perfect and go with everything. This dress is gorgeous too, so colourful and I love that furla bag. This is a such a cute outfit. xx

    I love that dress!! It’s so pretty! And you’re rocking that jacket x

  47. September 17, 2017 / 7:20 pm

    Although I’m still doubting myself in denim jackets, but I think nothing could go wrong with it. You matched it up in your own style and you look lovely! That candy bag is gorgeous too 🙂 x Ain

  48. September 17, 2017 / 7:21 pm

    I am loving how you have styled this! I am loving denim jacket lately, they’re so comfy and seem to go with everything xx

  50. September 17, 2017 / 7:42 pm

    I absolutely love your photos in this post, the outfit looks great! I love my denim jacket, I wear it all the time during the summer!
    I like to wear a zip hoodie underneath to make it a little more casual and keep warmer in the evenings!

    I think denim jackets are making a massive comeback lately! I never used to like them but they seem to have gotten a revival! Love this outfit, so summery and perfect and the colours are stunning. I’m in love with your bag too!!! Great post x

  54. September 17, 2017 / 8:33 pm
