A denim jacket is a tried-and-true staple that deserves its rightful space in every closet. I'm not afraid to admit that I have a rotating collection of jean jacket styles, from a cropped trucker to a dark acid-wash to a oversized light wash. A jean jacket is that piece. The one so versatile that it isn't tucked away when seasons change and can adapt into new looks as your style evolves. Add a classic blue-wash over your shoulders on a summer night to combat the blasting A/C, layer your favorite knits under an oversized loose-fitting jacket for an effortlessly cool fall look, or go with bright denim and coordinating pants for a monochromatic outfit. While we may never reach the denim heights of Britney and Justin circa 2001, we sure can try. Ahead, 15 of our favorite denim jackets that will soon be your new forever favorite.
