A Denim Jacket is Our Blue Jean Baby

The All-American denim jacket remains as stylish as its famous fans, from James Dean and Bruce Springsteen to Marilyn Monroe and Madonna. We took this retro Wrangler cropped jacket, part of the brand’s 70th-anniversary limited edition, and styled it two ways for fall. Yep, it’s all in the jeans.

DRESS IT UP, DRESS IT DOWN Our favorite thing about the long-time fashion mainstay (credit for the first of its kind goes to Levi Strauss in 1880)? Its versatility. Tomboy or Party Girl, both looks are classically cool.
