The One Jacket Every Spring Wardrobe Needs

If you had to pick the most versatile jacket in your wardrobe, what would it be? For me, it's hands-down my Acne Studios Denim Jacket ($325). (Which makes me feel really sad for my leather biker—I never thought that anything would tear me away from it.) A classic denim jacket will never go out of style, but somewhere along the way, I forgot all about it, and relegated it to the back of my wardrobe. Until I rediscovered it again this spring, that is—and it seems I'm not the only one.

The humble denim jacket has been featuring heavily on the street style scene—we spotted it almost every day at the recent international fashion weeks—styled and worn in different ways. It's my pick for the best jacket you can own this season. It's versatile, and offers just the right level of weather protection.

How have I been wearing it? With literally everything. On weekends over a slip dress, shrugged off one shoulder (how all the celebs are doing it), to work with slouchy pants and a white shirt, or even with a pencil skirt and tucked-in tee. The options are endless, but I've rounded up 10 looks to help inspire you, plus some shopping (in case you need a new one). Click through and start pinning!
