As a baby of the '90s I remember I had two fashion staples by the time I was seven years old. I was obsessed with denim jackets. Everywhere I wore that warm, comfortable and ever faithful denim jacket I felt so stylish and cool. I had to part with it only because it was so thread bare it was an embarrassment to my family. The other staple was colorful scrunchies to hold back my curls.
Rejoice babies of the '90s! The ever faithful and perfect jean jacket is back in style! (Don’t worry, I did do some research and although scrunchies have been spotted lately in street style photographs they aren’t as in as denim jackets.) Instead of having to bundle up with a heavy coat for campus and struggle with a bulky backpack, pull out your jean jacket and wear over sweaters with a warm scarf.
This Fashionista layered her jacket with a warm, simple shirt and accessorized with a black infinity scarf to balance out the bold color of her skinny jeans. It can be hard to wear several different trends in a way that isn’t over powering so do like this Fashionista did and balance out a bold colored pant with a neutral top and simple accessories. Pair the ensemble with leopard flats to complete the look.
Taking a nod from your past is a great way to refresh and liven up your wardrobe. Jean jackets have never been more in style (except maybe as a child if you are like me) and are a great way to stay warm during these chilly months.
