The 10 Best Denim Jacket Outfits That Are *Actually* Horny

When it comes to wardrobe basics, denim jackets top the list. No matter your age, style or location. But the thing with the essential? You don’t want them to feel tired or boring. Instead of using your favorite denim jacket as a security blanket, make it the magic ingredient that enhances every look he wears.

From trucker jackets to denim blazers – in green, black and classic blue – denim jackets have been a popular trend for nearly every decade since cowboys first adapted it as their uniform. Although it’s been over a century since Levi’s launched its first style in 1880, there are still ways to rock a fresh and new denim jacket.

You can go the casual route and pair your tracksuit with jeans, creating the perfect Canadian tuxedo; or, maybe you’re more likely to opt for a shrunken silhouette to throw over cocktail dresses. Either way, adding a denim wash will create the perfect high-low look that works for morning, noon, and night.

Upgrade your Canadian tuxedo by choosing a denim jacket that has more than one wash, such as a patchwork or colorblock style. This is the right way to go for head-to-toe monochrome, while adding some dimension.

Go for a 90s grunge look with a baggy trucker jacket paired with straight jeans. Whether you buy a boyfriend style or really hit the men’s department, go for a loose look, but one that doesn’t overwhelm your figure.

If you only buy one denim jacket, make it a classic trucker. Use the boxy fit to balance ultra-feminine pieces, like a satin skirt and heels.

Layering your blues with neutrals, like black and camel, makes the look look chic in a way casual denim rarely does.

A crisp white t-shirt, a pair of black boots and gold jewelry is a classic combo that pairs well with a Canadian tuxedo.

Monochromatic

Just because denim is traditionally blue doesn’t mean it always has to be. Go for a brighter option in green, pink, purple, etc. and then keep that energy going from head to toe.

Whether or not your jacket is embellished with hardware like this, it will go well with cargo pants and cool sneakers.

To make a slightly smarter look easier to wear during the day, throw on a faded black jacket. It can be worn with everything from cocktail dresses to contrasting shades of denim.
