What to Wear With a Black Jean Jacket

what to wear with a black jean jacket

A new wardrobe must have: a black jean jacket. This piece stands out as a versatile and stylish option, with quite a few advantages over its regular blue denim counterpart. While I love a standard denim jacket, a black denim jacket brings a distinct flair to any outfit. It’s edgy, more sophisticated, and best of all, it can enhance almost any look.

We focus so much on our regular denim jackets that it’s easy to forget just how versatile a black jean jacket can be. Think of it as a blank canvas for experimenting with accessories and layering. The black neutral color allows for creative styling, whether you prefer a monochromatic look or you want to make a bold statement.

Here, I’m sharing a handful of practical yet cute ideas on what to wear with a black jean jacket. All of these looks work for various occasions and seasons.

What to Wear With a Black Jean Jacket

White Button Down Tee + Black Jean Jacket

There’s no denying that a white button down shirt is a closet staple. A crisp button down paired with an edgy, oversized black jean jacket creates the perfect contrast. It’s also a great base layer for any type of look.

Plus, a basic black and white look is simple yet stylish—resulting in a monochromatic vibe that can be easily dressed up or down.

Slip Dress + Black Jean Jacket

A slip dress paired with a black jean jacket creates a trendy and effortlessly chic ensemble. For your dress, I’d recommend look for something that’s made with material that’s lightweight, silky, or satin.

The great thing about this look is you can go with a shorter dress or something midi length. This outfit is the perfect blend of sophistication and laid-back. I’d recommend finishing off the look with minimalist jewelry and maybe some heels.

Athleisure Jumpsuit + Black Jean Jacket

Have a full day after your pilates class and want to look more put together post-sweat? Grab an oversized black jean jacket and pair it with an athletic jumpsuit. The tight fit of the leggings combined with the oversized black denim will make you feel more elevated as you resume the rest of your day.

Complete the look with fun sneakers, tall socks, and a sporty crossbody bag for a modern and effortless appearance.

Maxi Dress + Black Jean Jacket

As mentioned earlier, a black jean jacket is fun to pair with brighter colors often found in maxi dresses. This look combines the feminine colors and bohemian vibes of a maxi dress along with the rugged, edgy feel of the black jean jacket.

This look would be perfect for a date night or girls trip!

Loungewear + Black Jean Jacket

Every girl needs a go-to sporty look that can transition easily from the gym to the grocery store. Everyday comfortable pieces like leggings, joggers, and sweatshirts can all be easily paired with a black jean jacket.

Whether you’re running errands or grabbing coffee with your friends, a black jean jacket will make for a practical and stylish outer layer.

Black Trousers + Black Jean Jacket

Modern edge meets polished professionalism with this look. And in my opinion, a pair of trousers are a must-have in every closet. They are great for a work and professional environment or for a night out with the girls.

For this outfit, I would opt for a more tailored and cropped jacket that way you can pair it with any kind of trousers, whether you’re going with a straight-leg, wide-leg, or slim-fit style.

Sweater Set + Black Jean Jacket

Perfect for cooler weather, a jean jacket always looks good with a basic sweater. I specifically love a jean jacket with a sweater dress or matching set. So many sweaters are now sold with matching skirts, which I personally think is so cute.

Throw on some tall boots and maybe a scarf and you’ll be good to go.

Button Down Tee + Black Jean Jacket

Nothing is more satisfying than slipping into a crisp button down tee—something about it just has a way of instantly making you feel more put together. While I tend to prefer the simplicity of a black jacket with white t-shirt, there are also fun patterns and colors you could tie into this look.

Keep things simple on the bottom by styling this look with black jeans. Oh, and if you need more ideas on what to wear with black jeans, I have a whole blog post with inspo!

Summer Dress + Black Jean Jacket

It really doesn’t get more simple than a black jean jacket and a summery dress. I don’t know about you but I find myself reaching for short dresses almost daily throughout the warmer seasons, so this is a great go-to look.

You could go with something short and more elevated and then dress it down with your denim jacket. Otherwise, more casual options, like this t-shirt style dress, would work too.

Jumpsuit + Black Jean Jacket

Need an everyday outfit that’s as comfy as it is cute? Try a jumpsuit with your jean jacket. Ideal for coffee shop work sessions, errands, or meeting up with friends, this is sure to be a repeat look of yours.

White T-Shirt + Jeans + Black Jean Jacket

Similar to the white button down outfit idea above, wearing a basic t-shirt with your jean jacket is always a good option. For bottoms, go with your favorite pair of jeans and then finish it off with some white sneakers. Simple, understated, and timeless!

Bodysuit + Denim Skirt + Black Jean Jacket

You guys know I loveeee a good bodysuit. They serve as a great base layer because they go with so many different closet staples. Another bonus is that because a black jean jacket is so neutral, you can really wear any color bodysuit underneath. Add a denim skirt (whether it’s a mini or midi style) and you’ll have a ready-for-anything outfit.

Tank + Silk Skirt + Black Jean Jacket

There’s something about a silk skirt that always looks so chic. They’re also really comfortable despite giving you a dressed-up look. For a good day-to-night outfit idea, pair a silk skirt with a tank (or any shirt, really) and your black jean jacket.
