Best For the Plane

$128.00

I'm currently wearing Free People's Ramona denim trucker as I write this, and it's the comfiest jean jacket I own. Throw it on for the plane ride with a white tee and leggings, and you'll look like you spent the morning getting ready instead of, uh, rushing to your flight. It runs pretty big, so make sure to go down a size.

Best For the Bar

Consider DL1961's "Annie" the grown-up cropped jacket. It falls right above the hips, making it ideal to wear to the bar with a high-waisted skirt and crop top. And that red? C'mon.

Summer called, and it wants you to wear your white jean jacket. A white jacket will always be the most versatile of the bunch for how clean and polished it looks with any outfit. A white jean jacket and shorts? Great. A white jean jacket and maxi dress? Even better.
