4 Reasons Why Jean Jackets Are Our Best Friends

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PSU chapter.

The most loyal article of clothing that I own is my jean jacket — it always looks cute and never lets me down. Wow, it kind of sounds like I’m talking about my dog here but what can I say? I love this piece of clothing. 


Here are four reasons why jean jackets rule the closet and beyond.


Pair it with leggings and a tee, and you’ve got yourself a comfy, yet cute look. No effort required. Consider pairing it with jeans for a denim-on-denim masterpiece that reflects the good old days. Vintage is what we live for.

Layered Looks

Kind of chilly, kind of not? Hello, wardrobe staple. Throw it over a hoodie, and you honestly can’t go wrong. Now, you can be warm and cozy — and adorable.

Feeling Creative?

You can customize your jacket with pins and iron-on patches. I personally haven’t done this yet, but I’m eager to give it a try. Just like the stickers on your laptop show off your one-of-a-kind personality, these will too.


Jean jackets don’t have to be washed after each use. You can wear them multiple times, which ultimately allows you to save water. Since they are durable and pair with lots of outfits, you can keep yours for a long time, too.
