The jean jacket has undoubtedly come back into fashion for spring 2012 (or..has it ever left?). I’m leaning hard towards it, especially mixing it with a buttoned up office look like the image above. However. Here’s one thing that disturbs me a bit about it: I remember purchasing two jean jackets in my lifetime. One in 5th grade (1988. from a thrift store. white. distressed. awesome). And one in 1999. Paired always with huge silver hoop earrings, which I rocked with a Meg Ryan short haircut for the good part of the summer working in Manhattan. Then it was tossed or donated. Who knows. Point is, neither of those jackets lasted all too long in my wardrobe and I’m skeptical with the jean jacket’s return again now. But, what do you think? Are you into the jean jacket trend or are you of the ‘If you wore it when it was first in style, you’re too old to wear it now” mentality? Which would apply two-fold to me!
One more burning question: Would you ever pair denim with denim?
