3 WAYS TO WEAR A DENIM JACKET IN THE SUMMER (+ 12 dope denim jackets under $100)

The Hungarian Brunette  3 ways to wear a denim jacket for summer - casual feminine look - floral mini dress and sneakers

A few months ago, I said I was going to do these types of posts showcasing more than one way to wear a piece of clothing. Then I did one post on 2 ways to wear a red leopard oversized cardigan (check out WAY 1 and WAY 2 if you’re curious!) and that was the last time I did one of these posts. I really wanted to bring back this series, because I feel like it’s super helpful and actually provides value… And I love that it doesn’t give into the idea that you can only wear something once, or in a specific outfit.

I’m personally all about repurposing things, and whenever I buy something, I always make sure I can wear it with a few things I already have in my closet.

Today, I wanted to share 3 ways to wear a denim jacket for Summer, because that’s pretty much the only type of jacket I wear in the Summer, when fuzzy jackets and leather jackets are simply a little too much. Where I live in LA (by the ocean), it’s usually super hot during the day and gets chilly at night, so I love having the option to wear a jacket when it gets chillier - Especially since I’m ALWAYS cold, ha!

I personally love a denim jacket that has a bit of personality, wither because of distressing or embellishments. Since I also consider it a casual piece, I love a cut that’s a little boxy and oversized. Mine is from H&M from a few seasons ago, but I found 12 super cool options that I linked for you guys at the end of this post (the ones with pearl embellishments are my fave!!).

Right before we get into this, you can check out 2 more ways I styled this specific denim jacket for Spring and for Fall…. Aaaaand now let’s jump right into it!!

Casual & Feminine: With a mini dress + Sneakers

The first way has to be my favourite one, because it includes a super feminine mini dress… And my favourite sneakers. If you guys know me, you know this is the way to my heart.

This is the perfect outfit for brunch, or virtually any activity for which you want to look cute but still be super comfortable.

Here are the exact items I’m wearing for this outfit, aside from the stars choker which is sold-out, and this is the closest version I could find:

The Hot weather Canadian Tuxed: with denim cutoffs and a cropped tank top

I’m usually not such a big fan of denim on denim when it’s paired with pants. But when it’s paired with shorts, I find it doesn’t give off farmer vibes as much, and I actually think it’s kinda cute. I wore this outfit for a day in Joshua Tree, but I’d wear it in the city any day as well… Probably because I live in a beach town.

My shorts are from Zara, where I buy most of my denim shorts, but they’re from last season, so I linked a few items that are as close as possible to the ones I’m wearing:

The Mom Look: With white jeans and a graphic tank

I don’t know why this reminds me of a mom look, but it does. If I had to take a wild guess, I would say it’s probably because my sister-in-law swears by white jeans, and she’s the mom I spend the most time with. Maybe? Anyhow, I love this look because it’s comfortable and it takes you from morning to evening really well.

Here are similar pieces to the ones I’m wearing in these pictures, and if you want a really good dupe to my bag, it’s right here on Amazon. Oh, and if you’re wondering, I’m wearing the new oil-infused lip tint by Nars on my lips, which I did a full review on, that you can read RIGHT HERE.
