How To Wear A Denim Jacket Over 50 – Best Outfit Ideas With Styling Tips

How To Wear A Denim Jacket Over 50 – Best Outfit Ideas With Styling Tips

How to wear a denim jacket over 50 – that’s a good question.

And I am here to answer it.

So, as you already guessed, I will share denim jacket outfits with you today.

1

Starting with the number one, well-known outfit idea.

That’s a double denim outfit.

Let me tell you the truth here.

There are some cases when denim on denim looks great but I personally am not a fan of it.

However, if you pair the right pieces, the outfit itself look very stylish and modern.

A fun fact here is that I am wearing a light-wash denim jacket with black skinny jeans right now.

This is the best denim-on-denim combination for me.

So the thing to consider here is to pair different colors (or shades) of denim together.

Spring is almost there. And I think this is the perfect season to wear denim jacket outfits.

For the next outfit idea, I want you to try linen pants with a solid color top. Put a denim jacket over for layering.

This look is one of my favorites today.

The great thing about this outfit is that it’s useful for both summer and spring.

That depends on the country you are living in.

For reference, my country (Georgia) has hot weather but in the evening we are wearing some jacket or cardigan.

That’s the usual thing here.

I know my readers love this image. I love it as well.

This woman wears a simple, solid but very stylish outfit.

I shared this because this looks so modern to me.

You can copy and wear a similar outfit by pairing a basic white top, skinny jeans, and a denim jacket together.

But you know what I love the most in this outfit?

Shoes!

Why?

Because these shoes make the outfit look so chic.

Here is the thing – everything except shoes is in different colors. They are all solid colors, only these loafers have some print on them.

And that’s the 100% working formula when you are creating an outfit.

  • You have to use only one (max 2) print in the outfit to make it look well-paired and balanced.

Another great spring outfit with a denim jacket.

For this one, you can simply wear a floral (or any other print) maxi or midi dress with a denim jacket.

Floral dresses are a staple for both summer and spring. They have a comfortable and casual vibe that perfectly complements these seasons.

The thing that this outfit looks perfect is obvious.

But…

I want to say something. If I wear some printed clothes with a denim jacket, I always prefer to wear a white denim jacket with them.

I guess that’s because white is a more natural color compared to blue.

A white denim jacket doesn’t accentuate the colors in an outfit as much as blue does.

A blue denim jacket will add another color to the outfit which makes it just less interesting and weird.

Did you get me?

I don’t mention this in every article, but I want you to know that English is not my first language. And it’s possible to find some errors in my writing.

And I am sorry if this happens. I am trying my best to get better at it.

This is another example of a well-balanced outfit with a white denim jacket and wide-leg printed pants.

It’s a good idea to create outfits using as many neutral colors as possible.

Now another thing:

In most cases, a denim jacket has a regular fit. A regular denim jacket flatters your body without any extra space unless you opt for an oversized one.

For this specific outfit idea, oversized denim jackets will not be a great option.

Do you know why? – because of wide-leg pants.

Here is the next trick you will also love when creating outfits for you.

  • To create a balanced outfit, try pairing clothes where only one piece has a loose or wide fit.

I have seen so many young children wear oversized tops with wide-leg pants. Yes, this is the current trend but I personally don’t love it at all.

It reminds me of the time when I was wearing my (older) sister’s clothes because I didn’t have the same or similar ones, lol

It’s time for my next favorite look of the day. This is one of the best casual look for me today.

This is the look with a basic, solid color summer dress, blue denim jacket, and comfortable shoes.

This is a great style for me.

For warmer weather, I would probably change comfy sneakers to ankle boots.

Block-heeled ankle boots will be the best to pair with this type of dress. Believe me!

This and all of the other outfit ideas that I shared today are appropriate for women over 50.

Even if you don’t have that perfect skinny body, those outfits are still gonna look perfect on you.

You just need to love yourself. Body type is not that important. It shouldn’t decide what you can and can’t wear.

If you are a lover of leopard print clothes, I think you are gonna love this outfit.

For this look, you are gonna need a leopard-printed top and brown wide-leg pants to pair with a denim jacket.

how to wear a denim jacket over 50

Leopard print has been so popular for years. For some bloggers, it’s an outdated trend, but not for me. Especially, for women over 40 or 50.

I think leopard print makes the outfit look more modern and elegant.

What I want you to consider here is accessories.

None of the outfits look complete without accessorizing.

Add some jewelry, handbag, hat, glasses, or any other thing you love to the outfit, to make it look finished and complete.

8

Now, moving to the next idea on how to wear a denim jacket over 50.

But for this one, we are gonna have a classic look that is perfect for hot summer months.

This is when you are gonna pair a basic white tee with a pleated skirt (it can be printed or any other color) and a denim jacket.

You are gonna put the jacket over your shoulders just like in the picture if the weather is too hot.

And…

It’s time for the favorites of the favorites.

It’s too many “favorites”, I know.

If you scroll through the whole article once again, you will find the reason why I loved this look so much.

Do you know what pop of color means? This is what it means.

This is the outfit that I am crazy about. And I have to persistently ask you to try this outfit and send me what you’ll get in Instagram DM.

I will be so pleased to see you try the outfit that I love the most.

Now, let’s talk a little bit more about the outfit.

It’s a combination of three colors – white, blue and pink.

This time you have to pair a blue pair of jeans with a pink denim jacket and a white graphic tee.

It would be better if you style a cropped denim jacket with this outfit, sometimes.

There are so many modern ways to style a denim jacket. And I guess it soon will become a wardrobe staple for you.

If this means anything to you, currently I have two denim jackets. One of them is light wash and another one is a white cropped denim jacket.

You can see them in my capsule wardrobe article once I update it.

10

For another easy way, you can pair faux leather pants with a solid color top.

I would get a few changes to this outfit.

how to wear a denim jacket over 50

For example, I would wear a white basic top, black faux leather pants, and a blue denim jacket with the outfit.

It’s true leather is a fabric that we consider classy but I don’t like the idea of wearing pointed-toe heels with this outfit.

If heels are a must for you, you can wear wedges, loafers, or something that has a more casual and comfy vibe.

That’s because a denim jacket will always make the outfit casual.

If you wear heels because you want to look taller, I hear you.

But there are more easy ways to look taller and slimmer just with the outfit. Check out my article and you will find all of them.

11

It’s time for a new look.

The good news is these are clothing items everyone has in their closet.

So you are gonna need white jeans, a traditional jean jacket, and a white tee to pair together.

Add some accessories, put on your comfy shoes and your outfit is ready.

Jean jacket outfits and actually none of the outfits have an age limit.

That means you should enjoy experimenting with your personal style.

12

For another chic look, you can never go wrong with classic white cropped jeans paired with a button-down shirt and a denim jacket.

This outfit is perfect for any casual occasion, whether you’re meeting friends for brunch, or heading to the mall.

Start with a pair of white cropped jeans that flatter your body shape.

High-waisted cropped jeans will be the best option. They will elongate your legs better.

Or you can choose a mid-rise fit for a more relaxed look.

Pair it with a printed button-down shirt. Tuck the shirt into the jeans for a more polished look, or leave it untucked for a more casual vibe.

Layer a denim jacket over the shirt to add some texture and bulk to the outfit.

For shoes, you can opt for a pair of white sneakers for a comfortable and casual look, or dress it up with a pair of strappy sandals or block heels.

Overall, this outfit is versatile, comfortable, and stylish. You can mix and match different pieces to create different looks.

13

For another chic look style a pair of black mommy jeans, a basic top, and a blue denim jacket.

The black mommy jeans provide a comfortable fit while still giving off a trendy vibe.

Paired with a simple basic top, this outfit is perfect for those who prefer a minimalistic look.

The denim jacket adds a pop of color and texture to the outfit, making it perfect for any season.

It’s a classic look that will never go out of style.

14

In case you are OK with trying different styles, here is the next thing you need to do.

You can make the next outfit with a basic tee, classic denim jacket, and flared pants.

Even when this outfit contains so many classy pieces, the denim jacket does the perfect job of making it look still comfy and casual.

This would be probably the great outfit for a casual Friday work outfit.

This is probably the easiest and my favorite way to style a denim jacket.

For this outfit idea, I tried to show you how you can pair an all-black outfit with jeans jackets.

Talking about casual outfits, here is my next suggestion for you.

For the next outfit, you are gonna need a T-shirt dress, and a light jacket to pair together.

You can wear this outfit everywhere in the world.

I love this color combination.

This is when you pair different shades of blue clothes with each other.

If you don’t yet notice, this is the best formula to use while you are styling outfits. Because you can’t ever go wrong with it.

17

Continuing with our trend which is wide-leg pants.

But this time I want you to try pants with some color and pair it with a solid color top.

If you’re a woman over 50 and looking for a stylish and comfortable outfit, brown suit pants with a printed top will be a good choice.

This outfit combination is versatile and can be worn for a variety of occasions.

To put together this outfit, start with brown suit pants that fit well and flatter your body shape. The printed top can add some interest to the outfit while complementing the brown color of the pants.

Make sure to choose a print that is not too busy, as this can be overwhelming.

To complete the outfit, add a denim jacket for a casual touch.

You can also accessorize with a pair of statement earrings or a necklace to add some sparkle and elevate the look.

19

This next outfit is one of my favorites again. I think it looks so cute.

I love the combination of red and blue colors for the outfit. They look fantastic as well. This will be another perfect outfit for summer and spring.

It is perfect for a chilly morning or a cool evening breeze.

The vibrant red color of the wide-leg pants stands out and adds a pop of color to your outfit. Pairing it with a denim jacket adds a touch of casualness and creates a perfect balance between the two.

Red pants are a statement piece, and they can be versatile and easy to style. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion.

For a casual look, you can pair them with a white T-shirt and sneakers. If you’re going for a more formal look, you can wear them with a black blouse and heels.

The denim jacket adds an extra layer of style. You can wear the jacket over your shoulders or tie it around your waist for a trendy look.
