Now that spring has officially begun, we’re more than thrilled to trade in our winter outerwear and heavy layers for pieces that are more lightweight. However, we still need some coverage for light April showers and brisk breezes, making denim jackets essential for this time of the year. Their comfortable, effortless design not only provides coverage, but never fails to exude off-duty cool whether paired with a printed dress or polished trousers. And the current offerings of the staple are chicer than ever, with a range of styles featuring distressed fray details, embroidered embellishments and more. Shop our favorite selects ahead.
