By now we all know that a classic denim jacket is an essential piece of our wardrobe. No matter the season it works perfectly all year round with its versatility and endless styles and silhouettes. There’s one for every vibe,  from oversized trends to cropped fits and distressed versions. However, many often overlook its equally versatile black denim counterpart. Black jean jackets are the perfect edgier choice while the blue is a tad too casual for certain occasions.

The magic of the black denim jacket is that it allows you more room to play around with your casual and even some work outfits at times. It surely makes you look more put together but is especially the perfect layering piece for the fall season that gives a dressier and chicer edge. It’s a basic but not so basic a piece that can elevate even a simple dress and even adapt to new looks as your style evolves. Additionally, the black colour is as easy to style as the OG blue version. So it’s time to give your blue jean jacket a break and pull out her sister this season for effortlessly cool fall looks.

Scroll below to check out some cool ways you can style a black denim jacket with ease:

1. Oversized hoodie

You have to appreciate how layering when done well can transform an outfit completely. In this case, your sweatshirt has a new bestie. Elisa Vassiliadis has layered her black jean jacket over an oversized grey hoodie. She’s paired this with some black skinny leather pants that work to balance out the oversized chunky top. This loose-top with tight bottoms trick will prevent you from looking heavy and clunky when wearing oversized items on your top half. Style with some matching black shades and purse it creates a pulled-together, not so causal look when heading out the door.

2. Bicycle shorts 

This is the ultimate cool-girl casual style, especially with the athleisure trend continuing to rule the year. Rei Germar looks effortlessly chic and trendy all and once in this monochrome outfit. She’s opted for an oversize denim jacket to wear with her fitted bike shorts and sports bra. The whole ensemble is very stylish with minimal on-trend pieces and beige sneakers to break up the black and pulled back hair that gives her a very refined yet laid back look overall.

3. Graphic pants

It can be tough at times to find jackets that can pair well with bold graphic pants or prints. But in this case, a black denim jacket is the perfect go-to. Krutika rocks these fun, high-waisted, plaid pants and this e-girl, grunge-inspired look paired with edgy black accessories. The denim jacket on top really pulls the whole look together giving it that finishing touch.

4. Matching denim skirt

Denim-on-denim is always a great option if done well. I love how Shahreen Hussain is wearing her more fitted denim jacket as an off-shoulder top. It looks great with the matching black denim skirt with frayed edges. Add in her cool looking patent leather platform boots, matching pouch and bold red lip and you’ve got a well balanced grunge-chic look. Plus with those boots, she looks ready to kick some ass.

5. Desi fusion

I love the boho-chic vibe of this ensemble styled by Aakruti Deole. She’s styled her black cropped jacket as a shirt and paired it with a patchwork, printed midi skirt. The skirt adds subtle colourful elements to the look without being too loud. Moreover, the layered ethnic silver jewellery and simple nude heels complete the entire look.


6. Over a dress

Give your animal print dress a more casual yet cool look by styling it with a black denim jacket in your preferred silhouette like Dina Potter has here. It’s the perfect way to create an easy transitional outfit in-between seasons when the weather starts to cool. Finish off the look with some sneakers to give it a more relaxed look or some strappy heels if you’re stepping out on a date or meeting the girls for brunch.
