A denim jacket is a tried-and-true staple that deserves its rightful space in everyone's closet. I'm not afraid to admit that I have a rotating collection of styles hanging in my closet, from a cropped trucker to a dark acid-wash to a oversized light-wash...the list goes on and on. 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 look. While we may never replicate Britney and Justin circa 2001, but we sure can try, here we've rounded up 12 of our favorite denim jackets that will soon be your new forever favorite.
