I'm guessing, when you hear the words "denim jacket" you automatically think of the classic, boxy kind with pockets on the chest. But, just so you're aware: you've got a lot of other options!! There are so many *other* styles of jean jackets out there—from puffy coats to trench coats, moto styles and more—and they all look great. So, please, allow me to take you on a denim-jacket journey that could change your life(!)...or at least your outerwear game. Keep a scrollin' for all the jean jacket outfit inspo you'll ever need.
A Denim Moto Jacket + Leather Joggers
Ooo, you edgy. Obviously that means you need to pair the leather pants that already live in your closet with this fun jean jacket and white booties.
A Half Shearling Jacket + Culottes
As autumn rolls into winter, you'll want a transitional style that also keeps you hella warm and that's where this cutie rolls in, looking all great with a graphic tee and some rust-colored cropped wide-leg pants.
A Quilted Denim Puff Jacket + Cargo Pants
Pair this fun, ultra warm puffer with olive cargo pants, a creamy sweater and a nice neutral backpack.
A Denim Trench + Matching Skinnies
Turn heads in a longer jean overcoat worn with pants in a matching wash and nude sandals.
A Trendy Puff-Sleeve Stye + Black Jeans
If you love to live in the now, then you'll definitely want to get this jacket with voluminous sleeves and a peplum detail. It goes nicely with black jeans and leopard booties, don't you think?
A Tie-Dye Effect Bleach Set
Matching set, but make it stand out—like, a lot! Go for this tie-dye effect two-piece if you're looking to set yourself apart from the crowd. You can wear it together to really turn heads, or wear each piece separately for something more subtle.
A Hooded Crop + Matching Jeans
Keep it low-key with this black denim cropped jacket that has a toasty teddy-fleece hood and balloon sleeves. Pair with black pants and a black crop top for a fun ~all black~ style.
A Raw-Hem Cropped Jacket + Bike Shorts
You either love the bike shorts trend or you hate it, but either way you can't deny the style looks great with a cropped denim jacket and white crop top, right?
A Classic Denim Jacket + White Jeans
Nothing wrong with the most timeless style of denim jacket. Pair it with a fair isle sweater, white jeans, and a hat!
A Chambray Shacket + Contrasting Jeans
A shacket = a shirt/jacket hybrid, and it's great for those fall days that are chilly, but not quite chilly enough for the real deal denim jacket. This one can be worn tucked in or out, and looks great when paired with darker pants.
A Patchwork Jacket + White Pants
The classic jean jacket, but with a fun, bandana twist! Since this already has a lot going on, wear with a striped button-down and white pants that don't distract from the topper's cool vibes.
A Denim Jacket/Dress Combo
You'll get so much use out of a half jacket/half dress. Wear it closed for a cute knee-length style; wear it open as a duster option! Then pair with black sock booties.
An Acid-Wash Jacket + Leather Skirt
You'll love topping this lace shirt and leather skirt combo with a super warm acid-wash style, promise!
A Cropped Oversized Jacket + Matching Pants
If you love that oversize look, but don't love being swallowed up in the extra length, consider a cropped, but boxy jacket like this one, which goes nicely with jeans in the same wash and a cute white tank.
