Denim jackets are a staple that every woman should have in her closet. Perhaps the most versatile piece of outerwear that you can own, denim jackets can go with just about every piece of clothing in your closet—with the exception of floor-length evening gowns and bulky sweaters. Made for moderate to chilly weather, denim jackets can be worn nearly all year round. They can add a layer of warmth on a cool summer evening or a crisp fall day.
With a distinct and often flattering silhouette, a denim jacket is outwear that can either make a statement or fade into the background and allow your outfit to shine underneath. There are a million ways to style this jacket. You can wear it to work, on date night, out with friends, to a family gathering or on a hike.
The only problem with denim jackets is that there are just so many options to choose from. Many fashion retailers have made these blue, classic jackets. So we decided to help you out and round up the best denim jackets. All of our picks are stylish—of course—and made out of stretchy materials, so you won’t feel restricted by your jacket.
