There are few things more versatile than a denim jacket, which is an evergreen wardrobe piece that, with some clever styling, truly works year-round. It pairs perfectly with your go-to dress and white sneakers for an effortless look appropriate for the milder seasons. As the temps drop, layer the piece under a fall coat for an extra barrier against the chill, or try a heftier style with cozy sherpa lining.
Of course, true blues may come to mind when you picture the perfect jean jacket but there are equally great contenders available in neutrals like white, black, and gray. Opt for straightforward cuts like slim-fit or relaxed and oversized—both have enduring appeal and age well as they become worn-in and softer. For a more fashionable twist on the staple, look to fun treatments like distressing and patchwork or even belted and tailored designs to emphasize the waist. No matter what you’re looking for, we’ve included iterations in every fit, wash, and size from heritage denim brands like Levi’s to fast fashion finds from H&M.
