Hey Jean Jacket, It’s Nice to See You Again

By Ashley Gross

ashcool2You’re wearing a girly dress, your Keds, and rolled up the sleeves of your jean jacket. Are you in third grade? Nope! It’s what you wore casually strolling down SoCo in Austin. Well, at least that’s what everyone else was wearing on a Friday afternoon while sifting through the racks of vintage. At first glance, a jean jacket might not seem like the new happening trend, but really how many people are bold enough to try to make that happen after age eleven? We’ve tried denim everything else, so why wouldn’t this look start to come back around? The denim shirt has gone mainstream, but the cool kids are now ashcool1challenging us to be so bold to make the jacket look good. These girls took it straight back to childhood. Don’t pair your dresses with sandals and a cardigan this year. Wash up your old sneakers (or don’t because that’s even cooler) and roll up your denim sleeves to look casual, simple, but effortless Oh, and don’t forget your backpack, because two out of the three trendsetters accessorized their denim jacket with a mini backpack instead of a messenger. So when I go home I’ll be digging through some old things to see if I can channel my inner elementary child.ashcool3
