You’ve probably had a denim jacket in your closet for, well, forever but this season they’re a little different than the ones you might have worn in the past. You know and love the slightly slouchy fit and perfectly worn-in feel of boyfriend jeans—well, now it’s time to meet the boyfriend jean jacket. The oversize lightweight layer offers a fresh spin on an old summer classic, and it can be paired with almost anything, making it a must-have piece.
If you’re curious about the best way to style an oversize denim jacket, we’ve picked up on a few simple rules for wearing the summer staple. First, don’t be afraid to wear it with jeans. In fact, many of our favorite outfits include a denim-on-denim look. Next, try rolling up the sleeves. This works especially well if you have sleeves with a cool pattern underneath. And finally, experiment with it. Try wearing it off your shoulders or in place of a top. The sky’s the limit.
