2021 is very much about baggier denim and outerwear is no exception. When I saw my neighbour rocking an oversized denim jacket on the school run a few weeks ago, I felt like I needed one too – for those cooler spring and summer days, but also to layer up for a cool relaxed look. I was delighted to discover she had bought it on Vinted and so of course I got searching. I managed to bag myself a beaut of one that was originally from Topshop that I paid £10 for. Here are just a few ways I like to wear it.
I always like the idea of wearing dresses other than for church on a Sunday, but struggle to find a jacket or cardigan that compliments them when the weather is cooler (or if I know we will be out and about later). I find though that my denim jacket compliments the look wonderfully (especially with some hi tops) and has transformed my wardrobe options mid week! Putting a denim jacket like this over any dress creates a really cool look – be it a maxi, midi or even mini length (not that I own any mini length dresses, but you might). Patterns obviously look fab next to the denim, but I also like plainer ones under it too.
With patterned trousers
I love a pair of patterned trousers in the Summer with my sandals and in the autumn with boots! Chucking on an oversized denim jacket with a tee or nice top underneath creates a really cool and trendy look effortlessly. I think it will also look great come Autumn with leather look trousers.
With leggings & a hoodie
Pairing an oversized denim jacket with leggings and a hoodie offers a comfy and casual look perfect for busy mum days! I like the chilled feel when wearing it with leggings and my hi tops and throwing on a hoodie too for colder days! This also makes for an easy weekend outfit or (if you’re lucky enough) for travelling!
I love the retro/hipster vibe this jacket brings to my wardrobe and look – it makes me happy to wear. I enjoy having an easy option for an extra layer when it’s cooler. and as a mama with 4 kids in tow, the pockets are a massive bonus for keys, phone and all the bits and bobs they pass you! I am yet to dare to double denim it or to wear it with skirts, but for now it was definitely a fab purchase and one that is used often to create various looks.
Do you own an oversized denim jacket? Let me know any more ideas of how to style it!
Yes, you said it right. Wearing an over sized denim jacked with lagging and hoodie makes you more comfortable. I also own an oversized jacket and love to wear it casually.
