Denim jackets should be in high rotation in your wardrobe this spring and summer. Not only does a denim jacket instantly turn your regular ensemble into a copy-worthy one, but it also provides protection against the elements.

You don’t want to be caught in an unexpected temperature drop wearing only your light spring frock.

Here are some fool-proof ways to wear the trusty denim jacket:

1. Crank up the spring vibe of your denim outfit by wearing your jacket with a prismatic dress

It’s definitely the season to wear bright dresses. Opt for a colorful one, but tone it down a bit with a faded denim jacket.
