The denim jacket has been around for more than a century. It's so timeless, in fact, that many of today's styles resemble the originals. And for good reason: It's an attractive, comfortable, functional design — which means it checks all the boxes for a mom must-have.

But clothing isn't as utilitarian as it once was. Today we use it to express who we are. Jean jackets are no exception. Whether you're a polo-wearing prep or a chic city girl, there's a style destined for your closet. 

Once you've found your perfect denim mate, you can use it to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn by wearing it over summer dresses, long tops and leggings, or tank tops and skirts.
