It’s no secret that I adore denim jackets. I’m the casual gal around these parts, and a tried and true denim lover. I feel my best in jeans, and when it comes to outwear a jean jacket tops my list. We probably all have a denim jacket in our rotation, but when I realized I have four that I wear ALL THE TIME, I thought it’d be fun to put together my favorite denim jacket looks.
My 4 Fav Jean Jacket Styles + Outfit Ideas
The Classic Cut Jean Jacket
This is probably the most-worn style of the bunch for me, but only slightly. I think because I’m shorter, a nice fitted jacket is flattering, plus the denim adds that touch of tough to dressier outfits and makes them way more me. I think when I go to style up almost anything multiple ways, my classic jacket makes an appearance in at least one of the ways. I love throwing this on over a dress, to warm up shorts, or to break up my favorite all-black outfit to lighten it up.
The Boxy Jean Jacket
This style has come back around this year, and I love it. On me I typically prefer a cropped length but some of the regular length chore coats are adorable, too. I love that it’s something different and definitely on-trend, but not too trendy. I love it dressed up!

This Fresh Take On The Denim Jacket Is Perfect For Summer
The Oversized Boyfriend Jean Jacket
When I first tried this trend a couple of years ago, I thought it would be too overwhelming on my shorter frame. It turns out I was wrong. I wear this oversized jacket ALL OF THE TIME. I often throw it on over my barre3 clothes for a nice easy layer that makes my workout gear look a little more street. It also covers the booty a bit more than my classic jacket. It’s perfect. I like having a lighter wash for this to mix in with my other denim and a softer denim fabric with a little wear drapes nicely instead of fitting too stiffly.
The Sherpa-Lined Jean Jacket
When the temps cool I always reach for my sherpa-lined jacket. Mine is older, from Abercrombie, and has a fun removable faux fur collar — but honestly I don’t wear it with that as often. I’d go for a classic sherpa-lined Levi’s jacket if I were buying a new one. It’s so cozy, and perfect over a sweater for winter here. I grab this so often in the fall and can’t recommend this style enough.
