Trust Us—These 6 Jackets Always Look Great With Jeans

·3-min read

We like to make getting dressed as easy as possible. That's why we spend so much time bringing you the best outfits floating around in the fashion ether, many of which will be made up of items you already own. That's certainly the case as far as this fail-safe ensemble is concerned.

You just can't beat a jacket and jeans, can you? It's a chic look that you can pull together at a moment's notice and that will never let you down—basically everything we want from our wardrobes. While you can confidently style just about any outwear with jeans and know it'll look good, there are certain jacket styles that loan themselves particularly well to denim. Keep scrolling to see a round-up of sleek but attainable jacket-and-jeans outfits.

1. LEATHER

Style Notes: Leather outerwear has made a massive comeback this spring, particularly in the guise of '90s-style blazers. Here, Monikh showcases just how great one can look with classic-wash denim.

Shop the look:

Arket Oversized Leather Blazer (£290)

The Frankie Shop Knit Tank Top and Shrug Set (£175)

& Other Stories Favourite Cut Cropped (£65)

Veja Campo Trainers (£99)

2. DENIM

Style Notes: Double denim was a major trend on the spring/summer runways, making the Canadian tuxedo more stylish than ever before. Follow Yaminah's lead and finish with a cute top-handle bag.

Monki Denim Jacket (£40)

Oroton Petra Handbag (£235)

Mango Erika Wide-Leg Jeans (£50)

3. UTILITY

Style Notes: Safari, worker, utility—whatever you want to call it, jackets with outer pockets and a cinched-in waist always look the off-duty part when paired with jeans.

Shop the look:

Olivia & Pearl Stellar Drop Earrings (£130)

& Other Stories Belted Utility Jacket (£120)

Reformation Cynthia High Relaxed Jean (£140)

Marks and Spencer Leather Hiker Ankle Boots (£59)

4. BLAZER

Loewe Medium Raffia Bag (£375)

Shop the look:

Andrew Gn Guipure Lace-Trimmed Tweed Jacket (£2000)

Charles & Keith Black Chain Strap Bag (£85)
