The New Denim Jacket: Styled Five Ways

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I love a good update to a classic closet piece, so when I started seeing boxier cut denim jackets, I had to try one out. I styled it up a few different ways to test out the versatility. Let’s see what worked and what didn’t!

Boxy Denim Jacket: Dressed Up

OK, this was my favorite. I do think this boxy, casual shape needs some dressy or feminine elements to help it shine. A silky trouser and a pretty pair of heels did the trick (btw, I LOVE these walkable heels)…and don’t forget earrings (I usually do! Ha)

Boxy Denim Jacket: With My Go-To Outfit

I wanted to see if this could swap in for my beloved classic denim jackets. I think with my regular go-to graphic tee, jeans and booties, it works. I wore it open, but it also looks cute buttoned with this look.

Boxy Denim Jacket: Denim on Denim

OK, stick with me here. I know this look isn’t for everyone, but I love it. I’d actually like to try this one out with heels, too. I think it has that coveralls vibe I love, but in a more accessible (literally) outfit. The fancy sneakers keep it from looking totally utilitarian or like I’m going to work on the railroad in the 1930’s. Ha. But heels would do that even more.

Boxy Denim Jacket: With Shorts

I know we’re over shorts, but I had to try it out at least. I saw this jacket styled with shorts when I was originally drawn to it. I don’t mind this, but it’s not my favorite. I think if the shorts were shorter? Different wash? But the neutral wedge sandals help.

Boxy Denim Jacket: Wide-Leg Pants & High Tops

This look is kinda springy and nice. With the high-rise pants though, I wish the jacket were just slightly more cropped on my petite frame, but I would still rock this in spring and early summer.

  1. Hi Laura, I’ve been very curious about this style of denim jacket, too. Would I look like a miner ‘49er? So your denim on denim caption made me laugh. Also (!!!) thanks for posting so many size inclusive options! xo

    You look great, Laura!
    Just want to mention, that some folks with peanut allergy have an allergy to chickpeas too. So anyone with peanut allergy /nut allergy (esp kids who haven’t tried chickpeas yet) might want to check with their doctor first or at least proceed with caution.
