I'm Seeing Every Chic Fashion Person Wear This Basic Again

There are a few items that are basically always relevant in some capacity but enter the spotlight again in greater ways from time to time. A denim jacket happens to be one of said basics. That's right. After scrolling through my Saved images on Instagram, it became evident that the chicest fashion people are wearing jean jackets more regularly again—similarly to how bomber jackets are more popular.

Given its highly versatile nature and ability to be paired with a range of casual outfits, a jean jacket could easily be deemed a wardrobe staple. You may have one already in your offering, but if you're looking to refresh that wardrobe or want to add a stylish jean jacket into your rotation once and for all, I rounded up the best jean jackets for you below. You'll also notice styling inspiration if that's of interest.
