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!

Demi Lovato performed live in Central Park as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in New York City a few days ago.
Demi wore a light wash Topshop denim jacket with studs and spikes embellished on the shoulders over a black dress. I really like the studs and spikes trend a lot, it’s one of my favourites, but I can’t say I’m a big fan of this outfit. I do like her hair though!

Here are a few images from the Topshop and Miss Selfridge Autumn/Winter 2012 press day in London last month. As it was the Arcadia press day, which represents all of the brands within the Arcadia group, there were only a few pieces shown from each brand. There were quite a few denim pieces from Topshop, which you can see in the first 3 images. They had some denim jackets, a pair of jeans and a shirt.
Miss Selfridge didn’t have much denim at all, they had one pair of studded jeans which you can see. I loved the rest of the clothes though, they had some amazing party pieces and embellished items! You can see all of the images in the gallery below. We were not allowed to post more than 5 images per brand though, so that’s why you can only get a sneak preview of the new styles to come!

I think Rihanna has turned into a serious denim addict! She’s caught in so much denim all the time now, especially double or even triple denim outfits. I love it! She was pictured here leaving The Roxbury night club in Hollywood, California.
Rihanna wore a vintage style sleeveless denim jacket with a pair of Topshop US flag denim shorts. I used to love these shorts, they have been around in Topshop for a really long time, I think since last year. They went through a phase of doing the US flag print on everything. What do you think of Rihanna’s obsession with denim?
