And the Clothing Labels That Give Them Style
Denim has been through a lot. Prevalent in the 80’s and 90’s, it has been studded, adorned with cartoon characters, bedazzled, decorated with leather patches, leatherette labels, and even dipped in acid. The denim craze was the epitome of 90’s fashion and I’m sure we all remember the denim clad duo of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake on the red carpet.
What we thought we had left behind in that exciting decade has snuck back in fashion in a much more discreet manner. One thing is for sure – the jean jacket is back, and it’s not going away anytime soon!
What’s Different about Them Now?
The return of the jean was triggered through the dedication of designers and the celebrity acceptance as we spotted Mila Kunis, Emmy Rossum, and January Jones sporting them.
The receipt of the denim jacket is a little different today as they embrace feminine style in a stronger manner. Not only were the jackets studded and acid washed, they were tailored for a masculine physique and looked boxy. A good example is that of Steven Alan’s vintage jacket, which is tailored perfectly for females and go towards sheer simplicity. Today’s Jean jackets are not only coming back they are adding daring styles with woven labels, faux leather, and leather patches.
