Closet Strategy: Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a wardrobe basic that should be in every woman's closet. The thing about jean jackets though is that they go in and out of style every few seasons! I think if you find one denim jacket you love, you should keep it, even when it goes out of style, because chances are, they'll be trendy again in no time. Anyways, here is the jacket I'll be styling today:

H&M Divided line Denim Jacket

So let's get started!

Outfit 1: Denim Jacket + Floral dress

I love wearing a denim jacket with a floral dress! I think it's perfect for the warmer weather and super comfortable to boot. This is a great look for a weekend out with friends. Bonus: Alison Brie on Community wore this exact dress. If it's good enough for Annie Edison, it's good enough for me!

Dress: Navy blue polka dot and floral dress
Accessories: Red Nine West cross body bag
Shoes: Sam Edelman flat sandals

Outfit 2: Denim Jacket + Bright Skirt

Like a nice pair of jeans, a denim jacket serves as a neutral. That means you can wear something super bold, like this bright coral maxi skirt, and the look is toned down. Because the skirt is so loud, I decided to keep the rest of the look neutral by pairing with this beige tank with lace and pearl detailing (again, it's all about the details with me, guys).  This is a great outfit to wear to run errands or kicking back with friends.

Top: Forever 21 pearl and lace tank
Bottoms: Forever 21 pink maxi skirt
Accessories: White Bershka cross body bag
Shoes: Target tall Sandals (old)

Outfit 3: Denim Jacket + Ankle Boots

Denim jackets remind me of cowboys for some reason so I decided to channel that look with these gorgeous ankle boots! This is cute look for a warm day that's appropriate for multiple occasions, especially because the color palette for this outfit is so neutral and composed of basics. 

Dress: H&M tank skater dress
Accessories: Swatch watch, vintage aviator sunglasses Mulberry bag
Shoes: Asos ankle boots

Outfit 4: Denim Jacket + Printed Shorts

Finally, we're at my favorite look - bold, printed shorts! I picked up this little baby on sale at H&M last year and they were a staple summer '12. I was so excited to pull this out of my closet again that  I took a few minutes to look at them the way Gollum looked at the ring and said, "... My Precious!!" in a creep voice. Yeah, I'm that obsessed. Because the colors of the print are neutral, pairing them with a bright coral tee (can you tell I like coral?) works harmoniously together. I would wear this outfit for running errands, or going out shopping. 

Top: H&M coral v-neck shirt
Bottoms: H&M zebra print shorts
Accessories: Icing wayfarers, Juicy Couture clutch
Shoes: Steve Madden Getta pumps

Would you wear any of these outfits? How often do you wear your denim jacket?
