Denim Jackets: A Teacher Staple Item

One of my favorite staple items to wear this spring has been denim jackets - I feel like I've been wearing one to school almost every day! They go great on top of a dress (short, midi, or even maxi), with black or white denim jeggings, and just about any other way you can think to style them. I have two colors - a medium wash denim and light wash denim, both from Old Navy.

I'm calling the denim jacket a teacher staple item because they are simply so versatile and can make nearly any dress or tank top appropriate for work. I dress fairly conservatively, so I don't like having too thin of a strap on my dresses or top - I usually aim for the three finger rule to determine if my top is school-appropriate or if I have to throw on a denim jacket (or sweater, denim vest, etc.)

I've included some of my favorite ways I've styled my denim jackets, along with links to as many of the pieces as I could find. (I'm also five months pregnant in some of these pics just as an FYI!) Please note these are affiliate links, which help keep my little part of the internet alive :)
