Remember back in the ’80s when everyone rocked a denim jacket (think Jennifer Grey in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)? I literally wore my Guess jean jacket until it fell apart.
Decades later, the denim jacket trend is all the rage again and a style staple on red carpet darlings like Rihanna, Ciara, and Kanye West-arm candy Amber Rose.
Jean jackets are also the perfect addition to your summer to fall transitional wardrobe.
The modern take on the denim jacket seems to be more fitted and cropped shorter. Below, check out the cool styles I found at one of my favorite stores, Forever 21:
The Dean jacket has 3/4 sleeves with slit cuffs. Novelty touches like vertical pockets at the waist and slightly curved patch pockets with flaps on the chest make this a cute back-to-school cover-up.
The long-sleeved Elisha jacket features lightly distressed detail on its front, side and chest pockets, a full length button placket, and antique finish logo hardware.
The Alexa is a casual denim jacket featuring a six antique metal buttons two-side entry front pockets, buttoned tabs at the back, subtle frayed accents, and a finished hem.
