The new jean jacket you need for Spring

Jean jackets are a lot like blue jeans. The original, or the 5 pocket button fly, will always be a closet staple. We all have that one we scored at the vintage store, or from our dad’s closet in the basement. Pop the collar, roll the sleeves, and you’re good to go. But this spring, like all things in denim, designers have revamped and reworked denim jacket styles for a serious update that is making us rethink our approach to denim outerwear. The new jean jacket is a style, cut and silhouette all its own. There’s riffs on bombers, longer lengths, kimonos, zipped up and more. It’s time to give your boyfriend’s denim jacket a breakĀ and embrace one that’s all you. We’ve rounded up nine of the best.
