According To Reviews, These Are The Best Plus Size Denim Jackets

Since a denim jacket is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet, finding one you love is critical. However, we know it's not as easy as it sounds. While there's an abundance of denim jackets out there, far too many of them have restricting fits and stiff materials. And there’s nothing worse than stalking the delivery of a long-awaited closet staple, only to slip it on and feel like you accidentally bought yourself a straight jacket.

But don’t worry: There are plenty of stunning jean jackets out there that can both flatter your figure and upgrade an outfit instantly. And to help you find them, we rounded up an algorithm-approved edit of top-rated jean jackets that you can shop right this very second. From cropped hems to cool oversized fits, there's a jacket on the list for every style and budget.

Best With Stretch

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
We’re already dreaming up ways to style this plus size white denim jacket. Its boxy structure and stretchy denim blend make it an ideal jacket to layer over a chunky knit turtleneck, but it would also look natural and cool thrown over a sundress when the weather’s warm.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
The brand behind this little number, Woman Within, has been designing plus size clothing for over 100 years. And considering this jacket has well over 1,000 5-star reviews, we’d say all those years of experience have paid off.

Best Non-Stretch Denim Jacket

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Old Navy makes some of the best jeans around (see here for evidence). That’s why we’re not surprised to see their Classic Non-Stretch Denim Jacket on our list. Just note that this jacket is made from a dark wash colored denim that’s 100% cotton, so when they say “non-stretch,” they really mean it.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Something we love about Old Navy is their commitment to price equality and style for women everywhere. This jacket is a part of their BodEquality movement, which makes all styles and sizes available at the same price for everyone.

Best Investment

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
If you’re on the hunt for that wear-all-the-time investment piece, add the Kelsey Denim Jacket from Universal Standard to your shortlist. Made from a semi-stretchy fabric that retains its shape, you can snag this denim jacket in plus sizes and colors from black to light blue to indigo.

USER REVIEW
“Finally, a jacket that fits well and has sleeves that accommodate my log arms. The length is also perfect, and the fabric is weighty but not hard like some denims are. I didn't wear denim for a long time because I found it to be harsh against my skin, but this jacket arrived already feeling comfortable.”

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Having a J.Crew denim jacket hanging in your closet is akin to having a reliable old friend you can turn to on any occasion. Faded to perfection with flashy silver hardware, their Classic Denim Jacket is beloved by shoppers for its roomy and relaxed fit. However, it’s worth noting that J.Crew’s website says this denim jacket has a tendency to run small.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Here’s something we love to share: This jacket is a part of J.Crew’s Re-imagined line, which means it was crafted with sustainably sourced materials like recycled cotton.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Another Old Navy style made the cut, and we couldn’t be happier about it—especially considering the budget-friendly price of this one. Slightly distressed with plenty of pockets and thoughtfully-placed seams, if you’re looking for a women’s denim jacket that has that lived-in look, we might have found the perfect one for you.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
In addition to the indigo wash version which they’ve named Birdie, this style is available in a light wash version as well as petite and tall sizes.
