Since Summer has just arrived on our doorsteps, the denim jacket trend is in full swing. Celebs from Jessica Alba and Alessandra Ambrosio to Cameron Diaz and Katie Holmes have all been caught rocking their denim jackets and they have all chosen varied styles. Diana Agron opted for a white take on the trend while Demi Lovato toughened her look up with some spikes at the shoulders. Alessandra Ambrosio chose a cropped sleeve look while Keira Knightley picked a stone wash option. Mila Kunis, Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz on the other hand, opted for the classic blues ranging from mid to dark.
I own quite a few denim jackets myself and I wear them as frequently as I can. The best thing about them is their versatility. You can pair them with your jeans as long as you pick a different colour denim, so you don’t have to sacrifice your love for jeans at all. If you do want to switch it up however, you can easily throw one over a floral dress in the day time or team it with a pair of printed or coloured pants. The denim jacket is a basic essential that is always a must have in my opinion.
Below I have chosen 18 denim jackets, all in a variety and variation so there is something for everyone. I have selected 6 premium denim styles from the likes of J Brand, Rag & Bone etc, but I’ve also chosen 6 more affordable options from stores like Topshop, Mango and more and to make things more bold I have chosen 6 fun denim jackets in neons, prints and colours from brands like Current/Elliott, Textile Elizabeth and James, Topshop and others!

We have been trying to figure out these jeans on Rihanna for some time now, but it was proving quite difficult! Jonathan finally figured them out today, they are Balmain Homme! Rihanna wore a pair of men’s jeans from the fashion house as she was heading to the airport in New York City.
I always find Rihanna’s denim choices so unpredictable, she literally wears anything she wants to and doesn’t have specific brands that she sticks to, so it always makes it challenging trying to figure out her jeans if we are unsure. I love how these look on her though, I think she suits the Balmain Homme line really well!

Since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have started dating, I’ve noticed a change in Kim’s style. She seems to have toned things down a bit and is mixing in tougher pieces of clothing, like her J Brand leather pants and sneakers.
While out in Studio City, she wore a pair of Balmain jeans with a white peplum top and heels. I wonder if Kanye had any influence on Kim wearing Balmain, since he’s such a big fan of the brand and is spotted out in it frequently. You can join the discussion of Balmain in the forums here.
I like that Usher usually breaks the boundaries with fashion, but his outfits always seem to work. Like here he has zebra print shoes, but they suit his style and tie in well with the Balmain waxed black jeans.
