Top 5 Ways to Wear Denim Jackets

Here at Brooklyn Cloth, we are denim jacket obsessed, and after you see the styles we carry online, you will be too!

Why Does Everyone Love Denim Jackets?

There is so much to love about a denim jacket. First, denim jackets are extremely versatile. There are so many different ways to style a denim jacket, and we will have all of that listed down below for you.

Second, there are so many different styles of denim jackets. There really is a style for everybody, so no matter what your aesthetic is, you can wear a denim jacket. There’s light wash, dark wash, distressed, embroidered, the list goes on.

Finally, denim jackets have been in style for so long now. The 90s has been a continuous trend for the past few years, and denim jackets were a 90s essential. Now in 2020, almost 30 years later, it is still a staple in people’s wardrobes. 

Where Is the Best Place to Wear Your Denim Jacket?

Denim jackets can literally be worn anywhere! You can wear them to work, school, on a date, etc. Denim jackets are perfect for any type of weather, especially here in New York. If it is cold, you can just take a thick sweater and throw on a denim jacket with Sherpa lining. Add a beanie and you’re ready to face the cold. However, for the warmer weather approaching, a denim jacket is a must-have. Springtime does bring back warmth and sunshine into our lives, but there is still a bit of a chill. We all know the expression April showers bring May flowers. You can hide from the rain in a denim jacket. A denim jacket is also a perfect layering piece. If you’re cold in the morning, just wear a denim jacket over a t-shirt. Once it warms up later on in the day, you can just wear your tee.


How Do You Make Denim on Denim Look Cool?

Denim on denim is a serious debate. You’re either for it or against it. For those people that want to give it a try without looking like Brittney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the American Music Awards in 2001, here’s how! (Yes, we had to include a picture of this iconic fashion moment.)

There are many ways to wear denim on denim, but these are two of the best ways. The first one is to take a pair of jeans and a denim jacket of the same wash. Denim on denim looks funny because it ends up being different washes and it clashes. I would keep the top underneath the jacket super simple since your denim on denim is already eye-catching enough. Put on a pair of simple sneakers and you’re all set.


The second way is going to be styled the complete opposite, but hear us out! You are going to take two different washes of denim. But, you’re not going to take two blue washes. Don’t do a dark indigo wash and a light wash. Take a pair of black wash jeans - the darker, the better. Put on a black or white shirt, and throw on a light blue wash denim jacket over it. With the denim being black, it almost doesn’t look like the bottoms are made of denim. It creates the illusion that you’re not wearing denim on denim. You can even get a little creative with the look and wear some checkered Vans slip-ons.


In the end, your style is your style, so you can wear whatever denim on denim look that you want. Brooklyn Cloth supports your decision! If you wear any of our denim jackets, you will always look stylish.
