How to Dress in Jean Jackets

Jean jackets pair with a number of dresses, trousers and other styles. This fashion item flatters both men and women for a casual and tailored look and also wears well in the spring and fall. Keeping the look fashionable and flattering can be quite simple if you keep a few rules in mind.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Wear a tailored and structured jean jacket to flatter your figure. For women the jacket will look the best with darts. For men, solid, straight lines in the jacket will be the most flattering.

  2. 2

    Wear dark-wash denim jackets to get the most flattering look. Dark colours tend to give jean jackets a polished and pulled-together look as it mimics neutral, tailored fabrics.

  3. 3

    Wear the jean jacket with a simple, tailored shirt underneath. For women add a pop of bright colour, such as a pink or blue, to make the jacket stand out more. Men can add a subtle plaid or striped shirt underneath the jacket for a more refined look.

  4. 4

    Wear the jean jacket with a casual hooded jacket underneath for men. This pairing of a hooded jacket and jean jacket will create a casual look for running errands, or on a chilly day outside.

  5. 5

    Wear a bright, floral dress underneath a tailored jean jacket. Floral dresses contrast nicely with a dark wash denim jacket.
