Happy Monday loves, how was everyone’s weekend? Today on A Styled Love Affair it is about the timeless piece that every girl should have in her closet – The Denim Jacket. Denim jackets are quite possibly one of the coolest pieces in any girl’s or women’s closet (besides that leather jacket but that’s another post lol). It is that staple piece that you keep going back to over and over again no matter the season. With spring right around the corner (well around the corner for us nor’easters), Denim jackets are the perfect piece to invest in if you haven’t already.

I can say this I promise after you read this post you will be hunting down this classic piece to add to that wardrobe.

So you ask “WHY I NEED TO INVEST”:

1.  A Classic Piece

Every season Denim jackets are seen in our favorite stores and online no matter the weather outside. A jean jacket (a classic jean jacket) without all the bells and whistles are the classic piece that NEVER go out of style. When you think staple pieces you think a denim jacket within those 10 staple pieces to have in your closet. They are worth the splurge, my denim jacket from H&M is my new spring splurge but to be HONEST it is less than $50 dollars and literally has been on my wardrobe repeat list. I have gotten so many compliments on it and new that this was a great investment.

It is the best investment and totally worth the splurge or non-splurge it is a timeless classic that is great season after season.

2. Great for any Season

Your denim jean jacket is perfect for any season, which is a great advantage to having this piece. This is total score in my book. It is the perfect transition piece that works from Fall-Winter to Spring-Summer or Winter-Spring – Summer-Fall.


 Winter: This past season I have been layering my denim jackets under my winter coats. One it keeps me extra warm and two it gives my outfit a fun outerwear piece. This really makes me feel super chic with a classic twist which I love. And of course keeps me extra extra warm. OR as a alternative layer your denim jacket under that fun cape to give more texture to your outfit.

Fall-Spring: The perfect layering piece. When the temps begin to drop or are still cool until summer arrives this is the perfect layering piece especially since its starting to get warm and a winter coat might be to much. I love to pair with my maxi dresses and my midi skirts as I have done today.

Summer: This can be a little tricky because during this time of the year we do not want any extra layers on those hot summer days but if you are heading down the shore where the temps are usually a little more cooler this is the perfect piece to have in toe. Especially someone like me who is cold all the time.

3. The Perfect Layering Piece

As I have said in my previous point and will continue say, a Denim jacket is the perfect layering piece. Great for those cooler temps and great to add to that simple striped dress tied around the waist for a cool accessory. You can never go wrong with this layering piece.

Whether you are going to work and need to cover up those shoulders or a night out its a great piece that can be casual to cool girl chic.

Layering Ideas:

Work Casual: Grab your favorite denim jacket, white button down, black pants and pumps perfect for casual work day.

Sunday Brunch: Pair with your favorite maxi dress or in the warmer days pair with your favorite midi dress or sundress. Grab those chic white sneakers or cute flats or low heeled espadrilles for the perfect brunch with the ladies or loved one.

Girls Night Out: As a different idea use your denim jacket if fitted as your top with a cute pair of jeans and pumps. Or grab those cool girl leather pants or skirt, white tee its a rocker chic night.

4. There is a Denim Jacket for all.

The greatest part of this classic piece is that there is a perfect piece for everyone, whether it be classic, distressed, jeweled, patched, cropped, oversized whatever the type everyone has their best match. If you are sneaking a casual look or day to night look a denim jacket is the perfect piece to add to that for any and all.

So loves have I changed your minds yet? Are you even on this post anymore or already putting your favorite denim trend in the cart and pressing order now?

My Denim jacket literally is my go to piece every season and will forever be my classic piece that I know for sure will make any outfit complete.
