Take a look at the wardrobe of all A-Listers — from Marilyn Monroe to John Lennon to Rihanna—and a denim jacket (or several) would certainly welcome you. The everyday essential has been around for almost as long as Jeans. Denim legend (and Levi’s founder) Levi Strauss designed the first jeans in 1870 as a durable and breathable workwear solution for everyone, from cowboys to railway engineers to miners. But the denim jacket, or as Strauss called it, the three-fold blouse, arrived only 10 years after, in 1880. While the first iterations were more like a denim button, the style slowly evolved into the denim jacket we know and love today.

Trends come and go, but the denim jacket has really remained a constant and has always evolved to keep up with current trends. We firmly believe that everyone needs a classic vintage-inspired style, but our outfit needs have expanded to now include black, white, oversized, cropped and Sherpa options in our Rotation. And who doesn’t like the options?

In advance, we break down the six styles of denim jackets that we are currently coveting, as well as our favorite choices—and where to buy (of course).

Classic Denim Jackets

When we think about the basic outerwear that everyone should have in their Rotation, denim jackets take the first place. They are the Topper of choice in spring and summer and a versatile layering piece in autumn and winter. If you’re looking for a style with heirloom potential, look no further than the classic denim jacket. Not too loose, not too short or too narrow, it’s like the goldilocks of jackets. He goes beyond trends to give any outfit a cool casual feel for girls—from summer dresses to leather pants to preppy Minis. For a truly timeless look, choose a slightly faded Vintage wash that gives exactly the feeling – Vintage.

Oversized Denim Jackets

There’s something inherently trendy about an oversized denim jacket – not just because that’s what kids are wearing these days. Its longer, looser and ever larger cut gives our new daily outfits of Leggings and Crew neck sweatshirts an elevated streetwear vibe. Wear it open and roll up the sleeves for a more casual approach, or close all the buttons and treat it like a mini dress.

White Denim Jackets

Now we know that the white rule after Labor Day no longer applies. But if you still have a little doubt about wearing white jeans in winter, opt for a less restrictive white denim jacket. It blends easily with any color floor (regardless of the time of year) and is an easy way to immerse yourself in the Denim-on-Denim look without feeling too much like a cowboy.

Black Denim Jackets

If a leather jacket is your winter Thing, then a black denim jacket was made for your summer wardrobe. This slightly faded dark Denim iteration undoubtedly has more edges than its classic sapphire or white styles, adding a rocker-chic vibe to even the most feminine dresses. Wear yours with a fitted white T-shirt, matching black jeans and badass boots to complete the rebellious atmosphere for no reason.

Sherpa Denim Jackets

Sherpa and Denim go hand in hand like Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel — it’s a sartorial Match made in heaven. Thanks to the comfortable sheepskin, this style of denim jacket can be worn on its own in still cool autumn and spring weather. For something more discreet, opt for a Sherpa collar à la Deni mist, Victoria Beckham and Levi’s, below. But if you really want to go the extra mile, Maja’s full Sherpa iteration will make sure everyone (including Mother nature) knows you mean business.

Short Denim Jackets

Denim on Denim no longer screams Canadian Tuxedo – especially when a cropped jacket and high-waisted jeans are the combination. Sitting only at the natural Waist, this style is intended to add structure and interest to airy dresses, as well as to show skirts and high-waisted trousers. It’s like the cropped Cardigan of denim jackets: always versatile and so feminine.
