How to style a black denim jacket

The blue denim jacket is without question one of the most iconic pieces of clothing. On the other hand, the black denim jacket isn’t nearly as popular, but there’s actually plenty of room to play, whether you’re more into casual or work outfits. It is not surprising that styling a black jacket is quite simple. In this blog post, I am going to share with you some black denim jacket outfit ideas that I absolutely love. Hopefully, reintroducing the magic of the black denim jacket can add more variety to your everyday outfit.

As mentioned in another blog post I wrote about gray jeans, they have that unique feel that cannot be compared to jeans in mainstream colors like blue, black and white. There are times when we just want to dress understated, which still looks decent enough, and the gray jeans in this outfit can do just that. Pair the jeans with a white waistcoat and a black denim jacket.

I have to admit that I’m as much a basketball fanatic as I am a fashionista. If there’s a bridge that connects the basketball and fashion worlds, it has to be the Air Jordan brand. Although I didn’t get a chance to actually see Jordan play back then, his brand only breathes black and red. Every time I see black and red I think of Air Jordan and size. This is just my little story behind my love for the black and red color combination.
As a good example of wearing these colors, you can wear a red hoodie with a black denim jacket. Pair these pieces with black jeans and leather boots to complete this chic look.

Wear is another outfit idea that uses one of my color combos: black and red. For the top, wear a white V-neck t-shirt and a black denim jacket. Pair them with black skinny jeans and ankle boots. The finishing touch that transforms the outfit from a typical outfit into a striking one is the black and red plaid shirt with tie. I like this type of style so much that I actually wrote a blog post about how to style a shirt or jacket with a tie.

There’s a lot going on with the outfit and I’m referring to the beautiful way of layering it. You really have to delve into the details to understand how the layering makes this outfit look so good. It consists of the oversized gray t-shirt layered underneath a comfy oversized green sweater. The layering of these parts is another oversized element in the black jean jacket. That’s not all with the outfit. The black skinny jeans and heels make you look slim and balance the oversized top. The loose top tight bottom is a trick to keep you from looking bulky when wearing oversized items for the top.

You can achieve a stylish and relaxed feel by pairing a shirt dress with an oversized jacket. For a good example of such an outfit, pair a black scoop neck mini dress with an oversized black denim jacket and mid-calf leather boots. Despite being an all black outfit, it doesn’t look boring or dark at all because the combination of texture from the three pieces just adds so much depth and character.
