Styling a Denim Jacket for Spring

Do you have a denim jacket in your closet? If not, I highly suggest investing in one as they are such a great piece to have in your closet, especially in the transitional seasons such as spring and fall.

Denim jackets come in so many variations, white, light blue, dark blue, black, cropped, oversized… The list goes on! Today, I’m going to touch on a very basic distressed denim jacket and five different ways to style it!

As always, everything you see is linked. Simply click on the picture to shop that exact picture or click on the linked words under each picture to take you directly to that item.

Style 1

This is probably the most casual of all the looks, and so easy to recreate. I’m wearing my Spanx Faux Leather leggings in this picture, but you can literally wear any leggings, add a t-shirt and sneakers and you’re good to go! Such a easy, but chic look!

Style 2

I love pairing a denim jacket with white jeans. This look is similar to the first one, just switched out a couple of pieces! The mules elevate the look to make it a tad less casual, but you could still easily wear this to the park with your kids or running errands and look instantly put together!

Style 3

Okay, how fun is this look?! When I was twirling around making a Reel for Instagram, I just pictured myself riding a bike to happy hour at the beach. Random? Maybe, but it’s such a fun look! I have a tank top on here, but would’ve much preferred a white bodysuit!

Style 4

Do you notice a theme here? All of these outfits are so easy and duplicatable! I’m just wearing dark denim with a peplum top and leopard mules for a pop of fun in there! This is great for those days where it’s chilly in the morning and/or evening, but warm during the day. Simply add the jacket and you’re good to go!

Style 5

This one is sooo easy! I am wearing a striped dress here, but you could wear any swing or t-shirt dress and simply layer on a denim jacket! You could make it even dressier by adding heels, but I kept it simple with my current favorite sandal and added a pop of color to my lips.

How to Style a Chambray Shirt

If there is one piece of clothing everyone should have in their closet, it’s definitely a chambray button down shirt! This piece can be worn SO MANY ways, and it’s a great transitional piece from one season to another. You can find these basically anywhere from Target to Madewell to Nordstrom. It really depends on your preference and budget where you get yours, but this is definitely a piece you could invest in and have for years to come.

As always, everything you see is linked. Simply click on the picture to shop that exact picture or click on the linked words under each picture to take you directly to that item.

I styled this one seven different ways, but the possibilities are endless!

Pro Tip: Rolling your sleeves up will give you a more polished look! This goes for all button up shirts! 🙂

Style 1

First up, the Canadian Tuxedo! Don’t be afraid to pair denim with denim! My best tip is to just make sure the shades of denim are at least slightly different. I paired this with a neutral mule and this fun leopard bag. I’m loving this look for a day-date or a fun weekend trip with your best girls!

Style 2

How simple is this next look?! Throw on a pair of white denim to really make the chambray shirt pop. You could go with a neutral shoe or spice it up with a pop of color. Either way, this look is so easy to duplicate and oh so chic!

Style 3

Talk about a casual Friday work look! This is perfect for those who still have to go into the office, but have the ability to dress a bit more casually. Or, wear this out to dinner or even just to run errands. It’s a versatile look and so easy to put together. Just grab a pair of black (or dark) denim and pair them with a fun belt and shoe!

Style 4

How fun is this look?! All I did was unbutton the lowest button, and tied it in a double knot around my waist. This gives me more of a waist line so I don’t look frumpy. I love pairing this with a skirt! It’s girly, but still comfortable without being too fancy! Of course, you could throw on a pair of wedges and give this a whole new look!

Style 5

This may be my favorite simply because it’s the easiest! A t-shirt dress is another one of those pieces that can be worn a million different ways. Adding a chambray around your waist gives you some definition and point of interest for the eye making you appear thinner! I paired this with sneakers, but you could also throw on sandals!

Style 6

Okay, I’m also LOVING this look. This is so good for a beach date night or a night out with the girls. Sexy, comfortable, but also cute! Again, I tied at the waist, but this time I left all the buttons undone. Add some lipstick and jewels, and you’re good to go!

Style 7

If you’re heading anywhere on vacation this summer, this look is a MUST! I only ever travel in this jumpsuit and I almost always pair it with either a chambray shirt or a denim jacket. Planes (and cars) can get cold, so it’s nice to have something to cover up with. This jumpsuit comes in multiple colors too, so if black isn’t your thing, check out the other colors available. But don’t sleep on this one because it’s goooood!

Four Ways to Style the Target Midi-Dress

I had so much fun last week styling the pretty floral Target dress, so I’m hoping to keep this going every week! This week I styled the Target Midi-Dress four different ways! This dress is only $15 and comes in four different colors/patterns. The last time I checked, it’s unfortunately out of stock, but you can always sign up for restock alerts! Either way, a version of this dress can easily be found and replicated!

As always, everything you see is linked. Simply click on the picture to shop that exact picture or click on the linked words under each picture to take you directly to that item.

I was a little worried at first with this dress since I’m so short. Typically, midi-length dresses don’t quite work well on me. That’s not the case with this dress! It fits me perfectly and is incredibly flattering. I can’t wait to wear this all spring and summer, and even into fall! For reference, I’m 5’2” and range from 135-140 lbs. I’m wearing a size small in the dress and a size 7 in the sandals. These both are pretty true to size for me.

Style 1

The first way I styled this is so simple! Literally just add sandals! That’s it! Sure, you can accessorize a little bit, but this dress makes a statement on it’s own, even though it’s pretty simple. So, throw on a pair of sandals and you’re good to go for a quick and easy outfit!

P.S. The picture below is the best screenshot I could get from the video I took. No judgement, please. 😉

Style 2

Next up is for my girls who love this dress, but want to wear it more casually. All you have to do is throw on a baseball hat, some sneakers and wrap a light jacket or chambray shirt around your waist for a little definition. I added leopard sneakers for a little extra something, but this would look cute with really any pair of sneakers!

Style 3

If you’re looking for a fun vacation vibe, this is it! Who would’ve ever thought throwing a shirt over a dress would look so chic?! These t-shirts from Old Navy are my absolute favorite, and perfect for tying a front knot (again, for that waist definition). Add a straw fedora, sneakers and a fun bag! The only thing you’re missing is a margarita!

Style 4

You know I couldn’t do a styling session without giving you an option to dress it up, right?! I looove this look! Comfortable, but sexy all in one! This is so easy to recreate, too! Simply add a moto jacket (again, my absolute favorite moto jacket!!), some heels and add a pop of color to your lips!

My bag and shoes are both old, but I did find the shoes on Poshmark! If you’re looking for your size, search for “Treasure & Bond Sannibel Platform Wedge Sandal“.

One Dress Four Ways

Whew! It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, but I’m so excited to bring a new series to you all! I’ll be styling one clothing item for you multiple different ways to show you just how versatile pieces can be!

First up, this $25 Target dress! Everything you see is linked. Simply click on the picture to shop that exact picture or click on the linked words under each picture to take you directly to that item.

As soon as I put this dress on, I knew it would become a favorite. You’re going to see me wearing this all throughout the spring and summer. It is so incredibly versatile and flattering! For reference, I’m 5’2” and range from 135-140 lbs. I’m wearing a size small in the dress and a size 7 in the sandals. These both are pretty true to size for me.

Style 1

The first way I styled this is so simple! Add a cute straw fedora and some sandals, and you’re good to go! This is so easy to throw on and head to a picnic, casual date night or stroll on the boardwalk on vacation!

HatDressSandals

Style 2

Next up is another simple style! I pulled from the colors in the dress and added a cute pink headband and matching mules. You could always switch those out with flats, too, if mules aren’t your thing! Side-note: You don’t HAVE to match the headband and shoes. That’s just what worked for me with what I already had in my closet.

Style 3

Here’s one for my edgy girls! I LOOOOVE this look! It gives the dress a whole different vibe and really takes it up a notch. I can see myself wearing this out for a girl’s night or even a date night. Either way, this look is definitely one of my favorites! All of these pieces are closet staples too! So, if you don’t have them in your closet, I highly suggest grabbing them over time because you can really make so many different outfits from just these four pieces!

P.S. This is the BEST moto jacket I’ve ever worn. It is stretchy and comfortable unlike many others that are very stiff and constricting.

Style 4

The last way I style this dress is another easy throw-and-go look! This one is great for those days where the sun is out, but it might get a tad chilly here and there. I simply added some white tennis shoes and a denim jacket! You can either wear the jacket normally, just over your shoulders or tie it around your waist. There really are so many different options. Either way, you’ll look put together and oh so chic!

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! It was so much fun to put together and really inspired me to do more! Tell me in the comments which ‘fit (as the kids say these days) you like best!
