Fashion trends come and go, but a select few continue to withstand the test of time. Topping that list is the iconic denim jacket.

It first made its debut in the 1880s when jean legend Levi Strauss designed a jacket that could match with the denim pants he created for coal miners, cowboys and railroad workers. Though you might not fall into any of those categories, you've likely sported a denim jacket at one point in your life.

The original denim look has expanded into different styles, colors and trends — but if you want to stick to tradition, you can go the classic route and embrace the look that has been around for more than 100 years.

If you don't own this wardrobe essential already — or you're wanting to add more denim jackets to your collection — you'll be able to find some perfect spring-focused picks below.
