Under-$150 Jean Jackets You’ll Want To Live In This Summer

If you look back through United States history, denim is about as all-American as it gets (maybe a Dodger dog at a baseball game has it beat). Unsurprisingly, the jean jacket continues to reign supreme for its effortless cool appeal and transitional versatility.
By now, we've almost seen everything fashion can do to the classic piece, from Levi's creations in the late 1800's to the explosion of safety pinned, distressed versions in the '80s. And while trends are bound to repeat themselves, 2017 is the year of having every possible iteration of the jean jacket. With an infinite amount of silhouettes, washes, colors, and levels of distressing, there really is one out there for everyone.

Classic Cut
As the saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." When it comes to denim jackets, picking a traditional style is always a good idea. But just because the cut is familiar doesn't mean the rest of the jacket has to be boring. Going for a crop cut, a frayed hem, or a zip-up center are easy ways to differentiate your jacket from the rest in the crowd.

Dark Wash
For a more dressed up look, pick a darker wash. A moody tone, anything from deep indigo to black, is more reminiscent of a moto jacket and keeps things from looking too casual.
