Fall is, in my opinion, the best season for dressing. You’re not burdened by frigid temperatures that require a full-coverage, shapeless parka, nor are you constrained by heat and humidity that don’t really leave a lot of options. Fall gives you room to play with prints, textures, and silhouettes and the opportunity to layer for style, not out of necessity. And of all the trending seasonal outerwear — from oversized blazers to cardigans — there’s one that celebrities across every generation keep coming back to.


Denim jackets have been, and will always be, that girl. The timeless style is a forever staple that’s been worn by everyone including Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber to Reese Witherspoon, Gisele Bündchen, and Jennifer Lopez. While other layering trends come and go, the jean jacket has maintained its cross-generational popularity, and the reason is simple: It goes with pretty much everything. Hadid showed how it pairs with even your coziest fall pants, while Witherspoon gave a masterclass in dressing it up for a dinner date. And, of course, like Lopez, you can always go all-denim, all-over.

As we head into fall, you’ll want to grab the season’s most versatile piece that everyone from their 20s to 50s wears, so we found 10 must-have options, below:

Gap has upped its denim game, currently carrying two of my favorite jean jacket styles. At Amazon, you can grab its classic Icon jacket in black at up to 75 percent off. This is for those who want something clean and simple. It’s well-tailored, free of trendy rips or raw edges, and, according to shoppers, “a timeless staple.” “It goes with everything,” raved one customer, while another person was impressed by the “fantastic fit” and high quality. “It’s well constructed and a wardrobe staple,” they wrote.

I love Gap’s puff-sleeve version for the opposite reason though. With a belted waist and romantic, puffed-up shoulders, this other pick from Gap is a nice diversion from the typical jean jacket. Shoppers shared that they love the “stylish” and “unique” take on the classic piece, with one person writing that “the puffed-sleeve detail makes it more than than an everyday denim jacket and the belted waist elevates the look.” It’s a balance between “elegant” and “casual” that gives it the ability to dress up an otherwise basic outfit.

Madewell is a staple in the world of denim, so its faded blue jean jacket — also available in plus-sizes — is an obvious choice. And right now, Madewell Insiders (all you need is an email to sign up!) can grab the style shoppers call “perfect” for 25 percent off.  The 100-percent cotton piece is a favorite among customers for more than its looks — though they do say that it’s “stunning” — with many obsessed with the fit and feel. “Right out of the package, this jacket was so soft and perfectly broken in,” wrote one person. Another fan called the fit “great,” explaining that the style is “worn” in “but not [so] slouchy” that they can’t wear it to work.

A denim jacket is one of those pieces you grab once every few years because it lasts (I’m talking about both wear and trend cycles). So ahead of fall, make sure your closet is stocked with the timeless staple celebrities across every generation swear by.
