The 10 Best Maxi Dresses with Denim Jackets

When Spring and Summer hit — and you get that Boho kind of feeling — one easy and chic look is a denim jacket over a maxi dress. This is a known favorite celeb look, with Alessandra Ambrosio, Krysten Ritter, and Kristen Cavallari all rocking it.

Whether you want to keep things really casual like Alessandra and rock an oversized denim jacket or you want something more sleek and opt for a fitted one, one thing is certain and that’s the fact it will be on trend.

Let’s check out the best ways to wear it.

Step 1 – Finding The Best Maxi Dresses To Wear With A Jean Jacket

I’m a huge fan of floral myself and think pastel floral maxi dresses look amazing with a light blue denim jacket, but so can a geometric, subtle print with a darker blue. The combinations you can create are endless and teamed with accessories, it can always look fresh each time.

Cosima

Step 2 – Finding The Best Maxi Skirts

When it comes to maxi skirts, you can wear a cropped boho top then a low slung skirt, or if you prefer not to show skin and want to cover up more, tuck a tight tank top into your maxi skirt and throw a belt around your waist. This will create the illusion of a two tone maxi dress and look fantastic as well! You can even go for a double denim combo and choose a denim skirt. Just make sure you keep both washes different and break it up with a lot of pieces. You want to stay away from the Britney/Justin territory.
