Last month when I went to to Austin to speak at an event a reader hurried up to me moments after I’d arrived.
“Can you please, please write a post on how to style a jean jacket?” She asked me. Well now, who am I to say no? I love to do posts based on what our readers are actually looking for and since my jean jacket is such a wardrobe staple for me I knew exactly how I’d style it for her. I hope you all find this helpful too because jean jackets aren’t just for cowboys or Zack Morris circa 1989, they’re a great accessory and everyone should own one. I’ve had this jacket for almost fifteen years and it’s just as stylish now as it was then. Here’s how I wear it…
Straight up classic style with a sweater and a button down shirt makes this a cute outfit for spring. A lot of people worry about pairing a jean jacket with jeans… don’t be! The key is to wear a darker wash with a lighter wash and it looks great. Pair them with my favorite peep toe booties and you’ll be ready to go!
These are possibly the most comfortable and versatile shoes I own!

Consider breaking up your jean jacket with a vest! This adds in some fun layering and shakes up the whole look. I paired mine with my favorite black pumps, black corduroy pants, a simple t-shirt and a cool clutch (similar) for date night!
Can you wear your jean jacket in the summertime? Absolutely! This look is so fun and fresh! Just mix your jacket with a simple t-shirt, some fabulous shorts and a neutral wedge. Top the whole thing off with a great pair of sunnies and then the look is complete!
A bajillion and a half people have been asking me how to style a maxi skirt... pair it with your jean jacket! In this look I pulled out some wedges for a little height and added on a printed tank and a belt for a bright pop of color. Don’t forget a tote! It’s an essential no matter what time of year it is.
