The blue denim jacket is without question one of the most iconic pieces of clothing. On the flip side, the black denim jacket is nowhere near as popular, but there is actually plenty of room to play around with, whether you are more into casual or work outfits. It’s not surprising that styling a black jacket is pretty easy. In this blog post, I’m going to share with you some black denim jacket outfit ideas that I absolutely love. Hopefully, when you introduce the magic of the black denim jacket again, you can add more variety to your everyday outfit.
Black denim jacket with black sweater and ripped jeans
I start this list with a dark and cool black outfit. It consists of a black sweater, black denim jacket, ripped jeans and leather boots. The rough feel that comes with the denim jacket and ripped jeans can really give you the tough look that you want to achieve every now and then.
Wear with a white t-shirt dress
This outfit can just make you look so cute and adorable that I can easily associate it with a lovely tennis player. This black and white outfit just kills it. The white part consists of the white t-shirt dress and sneakers. The black part is represented by the black oversized denim jacket. I love this, and it’s easily my favorite outfit on the list.
Wear with White Vest Top & Gray Jeans
As mentioned in another blog post I wrote about gray jeans, they have that unique feel that cannot be matched with jeans in mainstream colors like blue, black and white. There are times when we just want to dress inconspicuously, which still looks decent enough, and the gray jeans in this outfit can do just that. Team the jeans with a white waistcoat and a black denim jacket.
Wear it with red hoodies and skinny jeans
I have to admit that I’m as much a basketball fan as I am a fashion fan. If there is a bridge that connects the basketball world and the fashion world, it has to be the Air Jordan brand. Although I didn’t get the chance to actually see Jordan play back then, his brand just breathes black and red. Every time I see black and red I think of Air Jordan and I think of size. That’s 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.
Washed black denim jacket with leggings & boots
Here’s another one that looks low-key yet decent. Wear a charcoal top with a black denim jacket. Pair them with black leggings and suede boots. It’s one of those outfits that you can quickly put on and go shopping, or stop by your neighbor’s.
Wear it with black skinny jeans with a tie-waist plaid shirt
Wear is another outfit idea that uses one of my color combinations: 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 final touch that turns the outfit from a typical outfit into a flashy one is the black and red plaid shirt with a tie. I like this type of style so much that I actually wrote a blog post on how to style a shirt or jacket with a tie.
Black denim jacket with a green, comfortable sweater
There is a lot going on with the outfit and I am referring to the lovely way of layering it. You really have to dig into the details to understand how the layering makes this outfit look so good. It consists of the oversized gray t-shirt that lies under a comfortable oversized green sweater. The overlay of these pieces is another oversized element in the black denim jacket. That’s not all with the outfit. The black skinny jeans and heels make you look slim and balance out the oversized top. The loose-top-tight-bottom is a trick that will keep you from looking chunky when wearing oversized items for the top.
Wear with Off The Should White Blouse
Since the black denim jacket, especially one that has been heavily washed, has the feeling of roughness, if you want to style it more ladylike, you can offset it with a white off-the-shoulder blouse. Complete the outfit with skinny jeans and ankle boots or ballerinas.
Oversized black denim jacket and black mini dress with a scoop neckline
You can achieve a stylish and relaxing feeling by pairing a shirt dress with an oversized jacket. As a good example of an outfit like this, pair a black scoop neck mini dress with an oversized black denim jacket and mid-calf leather boots. Although it’s an all black outfit, it doesn’t look dull or dark at all because the combination of texture from the three pieces just adds so much depth and character.
Wear it with black and white striped t-shirts and white denim shorts
For a summer outfit that looks great but is different from everyone else, you can wear a black and white striped t-shirt, black denim jacket, white denim shorts, white sneakers, and a black baseball cap. The use of colors is unique compared to the typical combination of blue denim jacket and blue jeans.
Oversized black jacket with mom jeans
It’s just not that easy to look good in mom jeans. Balance is the key. A great way to do this is to wear an oversized black denim jacket to balance out the high waisted mom jeans.
Here are some of my favorite tips for styling the black denim jacket. I mean, I’m a big fan of the blue denim jacket too. But you’ll never see how good you can look without researching different colors, especially with items that are easy to peel off.
