Denim. It’s the ultimate fail proof wardrobe staple and right now the boyfriend denim jacket is a current favourite for an effortless street-cool vibe. I picked this one up at Missguided and love that it’s the perfect mid wash with slight distressed detailing. For me, a full grunge look isn’t really my style so when I go for something street or boyish I’ll usually pair with more feminine pieces. If you’re in the same boat and looking for ways to soften your look, below are my 3 styling tips for wearing an oversized denim jacket.
Tips for the boyfriend denim jacket:
Play with Proportions
Add interest and an element of femininity by pairing with a maxi/ midi skirt or layer it over a cute mini dress. Avoid wearing it with a knee length skirt as the lines together will create an unflattering shape cutting you off in the wrong places.
Pair with sleek shapes
The oversize silhouette of the jacket will naturally create all the shape. Wear it over streamline shapes such as skinny leg pants, maxi dress or skirt to avoid adding any extra bulk to your look which will also allow the jacket to be the statement piece of your outfit.
Elevate with feminine details
Although its a very casual looking piece, the boyfriend denim jacket can be dressed up to fit in with a going out look or even to work if your office is fairly casual. I’ve worn it with a floral skirt and lace trim detailed cami to give it a touch of femininity and pare back the toughness of the jacket. Try it with a free-slowing skirt for the perfect balance of lady-like & masculine.
