A denim jacket on a dress, always a winner

In my mind a denim jacket always looks good on dresses. In my working life, in a trendy womenswear store, we always showed our customers how to dress down a dress, as many women see a dress as something they can only wear at party’s. And with a denim jacket it’s  so easy to wear. With a leather jacket too, but you can leave a denim jacket on, and a leather one feels more as a coat. A denim jacket and boots! That always works for me when I wear a dress in this time of the year. I actually love boots so much, that I like to wear them in spring as long as possible. Also with bare legs. Only when it’s time to wear sandals, I will put them in the closet.

Floral prints in winter

I like dark floral prints a lot. It’s feminine and cheerful. Now that I am used to wearing prints, it almost feels boring when I don’t. Whereas I never wore prints before. Only a totall black outfit feels better for me. That stays my favorite. I love to wear cognac colored boots with a denim jacket( I think those colors are fabulous together) and luckely there is also cognac in this dress. How easy it is to style a dress isn’t it! Just add a jacket and boots and ready.denim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacketdenim jacket

      Thanks Cheryl! Well, only a few more months and it is spring again!

    Oh my goodness! So cute, Nancy! I do love a good dark floral print any time of year. I need to start belting my longer dresses. It adds such great interest to a flowing dress. Well done, my friend. As always, well done!

      Thank you very much Shelbee!

    Wow, I ADORE this outfit! Denim over dresses is always super cute but this particular floral print with the cognac boots and belt and faded denim, MWAH! Perfect!


    • January 5, 2018 / 9:02 am

      Thank you Bettye! It looked very good on your black dress too!

  3. January 5, 2018 / 1:25 am

    Nancy, I love that darker floral print contrasting with the lighter denim jacket. Your boots and belt are perfect completer pieces. I’d wear this in a heartbeat – the cut of that dress is fab!

    Denim jackets are my favorite way to layer over a dress! You look amazing!

    • January 5, 2018 / 2:04 pm

      Thank you!

  13. January 5, 2018 / 1:41 pm

    Hi Nancy! I don’t wear many dresses, but I do love a denim jacket with most anything and you’ve styled this one perfectly! Boots are also a favorite and I too wear them into the spring. Have a great day!

    • January 5, 2018 / 2:04 pm

      Thank you Suzanne! Happy weekend!

  14. January 5, 2018 / 2:01 pm

    Hi Nancy. Yip, great minds think alike……both of us showing a floral dress on the same day. I love the way you have styled yours, probably because I am a huge fan of boots as well and tend to wear them nearly all year long too! I also like combining dresses with a denim jacket for the casual touch. That often leads to mixed reactions: some love it, others feel that I don’t do justice to the dress. Well, that’s the way fashion works, isn’t it? Finding your own style and feeling happy with what you wear. You seem to be doing just that! Happy weekend. Love, Lieske

    • January 5, 2018 / 2:06 pm

      Indeed! If we are wearing what , the world,, wants us to wear , then it would be very boring! Happy weekend Lieske!

  15. January 5, 2018 / 2:26 pm

    Dresses with denim jackets is one of my favourite wardrobe staples and I love your look, Nancy!
    Especially with tan boots – I’m obsessed with boots too and I like to wear them as long as possible too.
    Happy New Year1

      Don t you also hate it when it s really to hot to wear them!

  16. January 5, 2018 / 2:39 pm

    I agree about the denim jackets verses the leather jackets. Can I take a momentary rabbit trail to take about how much I love leather jackets, but with they were warmer?? Next time I’m getting one with extra lining! Anyway, I think your dress is so pretty and I love it layered with the cognac boots and belt!

    • January 5, 2018 / 6:15 pm

      Yes, because last week I wanted to wear my green leather jacket, and it was a stupide thing to do! Way to cold! Thanks love!

    Hi Nancy Im in love with long floral dresses at the moment and yours looks great teamed with those boots. I am wrapped up warm, against the cold here today, dreaming of being able to wear a dress again soon!

    • January 5, 2018 / 6:17 pm

      Just wear a thick legging underground neath! I am all layered up!

      Leuk! Volgende week donderdag? Ik had je een mail gestuurd, had je t gezien? Niet dat ik ongeduldig ben(ben ik wel) maar mijn email account was gisteren gehackt dus dan ben ik altijd een beetje huiverig of nu alles wel weer goed is!

    Denim jackets are such a staple and your floral dress is so pretty and I love how your cognac belt and boots makes the entire outfit so much richer in color and vibrancy. Happy Friday!

    love the denim jacket witht he floral dress. I love florals all year!

  24. January 6, 2018 / 6:57 am

    I pretty much live in my boots and booties year-round, dearest Nancy…so I know exactly what you mean about the way they can “make” an outfit!! Your navy floral dress looks so fresh and fabulous paired with that denim jacket..but it’s your wonderful smile that really completes this sweet combo!! Enjoy the weekend!! XOXO


    • January 6, 2018 / 9:36 am

      But it is a bit of a ,,frosty,, smile! It was zo cold outside! Happy weekend love!

  25. January 6, 2018 / 10:16 am

    You’re looking positively Spring-like in this outfit Nancy – has it warmed up that much in The Netherlands?! We’ve got a frosty start again today, so I won’t be back in my denim jackets just yet. It’s a classy combination though, one i return to time and time again. I do like the dark florals, you can wear them throughout the year then.

    • January 6, 2018 / 11:11 am

      Yes, I agree! But it is not ,,springish,, at all over here! It is almost freezing, next week we het the frost! So, I hate it to take photos now!

  26. January 6, 2018 / 10:20 am

    That’s a really great look on you, Nancy. Love the boots and the dress is a sweet one. I agree about wearing a denim jacket as adding a denim jacket gives an outfit an edge – which I like to do!! Happy New Year to you, Nancy. Onwards and upwards for 2018 x

    • January 6, 2018 / 11:11 am

      I love a a bit edgy too! Happy new year!

  27. January 6, 2018 / 5:22 pm

    Happy new Year Nancy! Would totally wear that cool combination. Mooi. <3 You look really stylish. Love the dress and the color of those boots! Thanks for the link-up. Goed weekend. xo Sabina

    I love the length of your dress! I have my eye on a similar one! You’re right – denim jackets and floral dresses is a classic never-fails combo

    • January 8, 2018 / 11:00 pm

      I totally agree!

      Ja hè! Ik vind spijker jasjes altijd goed staan op jurkjes!

  35. January 11, 2018 / 3:30 pm

    I agree that dresses are easy to style, especially with a denim jacket. Here though that would need to be topped off with a winter coat.

    I’m a sucker for boots, I love that colour.


    • January 11, 2018 / 4:33 pm

      Thank you!

  36. January 11, 2018 / 6:54 pm

    I think I may have another comment up there somewhere, but not sure. Great look and you know I always love your style. Do you think we will ever get tired of jean jackets. I just thrifted red one but need to change the buttons but that’s not a biggie. Thanks for linking up. xox Terri

    • January 11, 2018 / 7:32 pm

      A red denim jacket? Wow, sounds great! As long as I can remember I have denim jackets!
