How to Style: Oversized Denim Jackets

Happy Tuesday babes! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! My mom and sister were in town visiting, and we had such a fun girls weekend! Of course we did some shopping, and I did some major damage and bought a new camera! I picked up the Canon Rebel t6i, and I am SO excited to start shooting and filming with it this week!! My blog turns 3 next month, so it was an early b-day present to myself!:)

For those of you who follow me on my social media will have already seen my new hair, but this is my first blog post with SHORT hair! What do you think?! I’ve had long hair for 10+ years, and I’ve always wanted to chop it off, so I just went for it! With my new job and new apartment it was the perfect timing to change up my look! I’m absolutely in love with it :D

7 ways to style oversized denim jackets

Today I’m sharing my tips on HOW TO style an oversized denim jacket. For starters, since we’re going for a men’s inspired look, I recommend you go for one a size or 2 bigger than your usual size, or borrow your boyfriend or brother’s ;) You can always shop the men’s section too! Mines from F21 and I’m obsessed with the acid wash/faded look of it- the more “worn in”/vintage looking the better in my opinion! Since we’re in the Fall/Winter season, I advise going for a medium to dark wash or even a grey/black denim jacket. Trust me, you’re leather jacket is going to be jealous, as the oversized denim jacket is the perfect alternative! You can still create that cool/bad-ass look with it! Of course, don’t forget to roll up the looks 100x better!;)

So what looks good with an oversized denim jacket? Since they have that grungy/rocker side I like to stick to edgy pieces in neutral colours. Think ripped black denim, graphic Ts, plaid, chokers, anything leather and dark lipsticks! Also, since the jacket is going to be loose-fitting, make sure the rest of your outfit is proportioned so you’re not drowning in your clothes. For example, if you’re going to do a relaxed T-shirt, grab your skinny jeans. Balance is key! Check out the 7 outfit ideas below to get some inspo :)

    • Thanks for reading lovely! Yes, like I said it’s all about proportions, so if you’re doing an oversized jacket, I recommend you do a fitted top and bottoms, that way your frame isn’t completely covered :) Hope you give the jacket a try- they are so fun to style! xo
