Denim Jacket Outfit Ideas

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I haven’t owned a denim jacket since I was probably 14 years old. I went through a phase where I wasn’t as into them, but once I outgrew that phase I had the hardest time finding a jacket I liked. Everything I tried was either the wrong wash, too cropped or just didn’t fit right. You could say I was feeling pretty discouraged with my denim hunt.

I feel like it’s fashion fate that brought me to this Banana Republic denim jacket. You see, I was killing some time before an appointment a few weeks ago and decided to do what any girl would do: shop. A trip to Banana never does me wrong, so it was my first and only stop. I loaded up on things to try on, including these black skinny jeans and this denim jacket. Both fit like a glove, and I am so thankful for those thirty minutes I had to kill.

There are multiple reasons I knew this was my dream denim. First of all, it’s extremely soft and doesn’t have that stiff structure that some other jackets do. I love that. I want to be able to move around in a jacket, and this one lets me do that. Also, the color is exactly what I’ve been wanting. It’s a classic blue denim, and not too light and not too dark. It’s right in the middle of the spectrum, meaning I can wear it with anything (which I’ve totally been doing).

Lately, I’ve been going through a simplistic phase, which is pretty evident with today’s outfit. I’m really digging everything clean cut and not too over the top. The only jewelry I’m wearing here is a simple suede bow choker (which I made a DIY video on). There’s something so chic about a simple outfit.

    This is such a cute outfit! I’ve had the same denim jacket since junior year of high school (wow), but now I’m on the hunt for a darker wash like this one… I love it! Also I’m loving that choker on you!
