Every year with spring’s arrival, denim jackets begin to pop up both in-store and on our favorite street style stars like flowers blossoming out of the ground. It makes complete sense, seeing as they are the perfect lightweight outerwear option for transitional and warm weather. Odds are you already own one! However, this year’s crop of denim jackets is unlike the rest in that the ones we’re most drawn to (the denim jacket elite, shall we call them) all have something that makes them special. Whether it’s pins, patches, atypical pockets, or fraying, they’ve all been through an update, and we can’t say we’re mad about it. While some look at this as the perfect DIY challenge, not all of us are as blessed in the craft department, so today we’re bringing you 14 of the coolest already-updated denim jackets to buy now.
Scroll through to shop the ones that made the cut!
