The best denim jackets: 12 styles to buy now and cherish forever

Posted by for Fashion

As essential to your wardrobe as an LBD or a classic pair of white trainers, the denim jacket is a timeless investment piece.

The denim jacket is a staple of any wardrobe. Alongside the trench, camel coat, leather biker jacket and pea-coat it’s one of the outerwear classics. For around 140 years (Levi Strauss didn’t only create jeans in 1880, he also gave us the denim jacket in 1890) it has gone through an evolution; from labourers staple to rebel status symbol, rock ‘n’ roll essential to supermodel style, and now celebrity mainstay. Madonna, Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Miley Cyrus all consider it an essential part of their wardrobe, as should we.

Season after season, the denim jacket, reappears on the runway. For spring/summer 2020 Alberta Ferretti, Marques’Almeida, Alexander Wang, Celine, Balenciaga, Versace and Chanel all styled their models in iteration of the classic denim jackets. The jacket was worn as part of a head to toe denim look or thrown over miniskirts, high-waisted trousers and mixed with fashion’s new material obsession, leather.

Invest in a classic denim jacket now and watch the price per wear drop year after year. Here’s our pick of the best timeless denim jackets to shop for summer.
