How To Style A Denim Jacket For Spring And Summer

Here are the 4 jackets you need and how to wear them.


What’s a more classic piece for the cooler days and breezy evenings of the warmer months than a denim jacket? Well, we’ve got the 4 updated denim jackets you need and how we're styling them.


A perfectly oversized denim jacket is a non-negotiable closet essential. It’s the ideal piece to add balance to any outfit. Throw it on with your tank and leggings to dress up your go-to errand outfit, a cute top and your comfiest sweatpants for brunch, or to dress down your fanciest sundress. We love an oversized jean jacket layered with a pretty midi-skirt and t-shirt paired with low-top sneakers or with flowy culottes, a tank, and your favorite booties. Oversized jean jackets are the perfect cocktail of effortless and cool. We recommend this cozy, light wash H&M pick.

Cropped denim jackets are the opposite way to modernize a classic. It’s a more put-together look, and it’ll accentuate your waist instead of camouflaging it. Cropped denim jackets are the perfect pairing for your floral maxi dresses and cool jumpsuits to finish off your look and cinch in your waist. This True Religion jacket is the length we love in a super neutral denim tone.

Balloon Sleeves

Clearly atypical sleeves are a huge trend that’s here to stay. Balloon-sleeved denim jackets are the latest way to add fun to your sleeves. They sprinkle in a bit of detail and femininity, so we love to wear them with something sleek on the bottom like joggers, carrot pants, or your fave cropped leggings. Pop on a tank and some cute sandals, and you’ve got an easy outfit with added flair. We love this funky Missguided option.

Not only is white a spring and summer staple, but it’s also neutral and goes with pretty much everything. It’s a great way to put a twist on your jean jacket without sacrificing its ease and neutrality. Pop your white denim jacket on with colorful prints or pair it with jeans or denim shorts if you want a Canadian tuxedo that’s a little less cowgirl-chic. This L.T.J. pick is perfectly on-trend.
