When I began writing for BA50 last July, my first article idea was denim jackets, since they are one of my all-time favorite clothing items. No matter what my outfit is, adding a denim jacket always boosts my confidence and adds some edge to my look. I own more than a few, including destructed faded denim, white for summer, classic blue, and oversized, which is ideal over chunkier sweaters.
A denim jacket is often the only outerwear piece I travel with during the warmer months. I love pairing one with a dress to add some friction to my outfit. While I will often wear a blue denim jacket when wearing white jeans and vice versa, it is especially on-trend right now to go head-to-toe in a similar shade. If, like me, you can never have enough denim jackets in your closet, or maybe you need a new style to update your wardrobe, below are my top 10 for you to consider.
