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 and, every year, designer and high street brands deliver the goods. Invest in a classic denim jacket now and love it for a lifetime.
Here’s our pick of the best denim jackets to shop for summer.
