Now to our models: the baby boomer and the millennial.
THE BABY BOOMER LOOK
I have owned some version of a jean jacket since the Sixties (that is the 1960’s). Right now, I have four of them: three in blue and one in red. So, I have been an aspiring rock star for decades. I love them for the comfort, convenience, and layering option (I am always cold). However, I don’t see many women my age wearing them. The jacket is a classic and an eternal wardrobe piece. They have recently gained more popularity among the younger women. They come in all color washes and lengths with intricate embellished decorative designs. Steph and I are wearing a great jacket with decorative pearls on the sleeves…such a modern take on the classic style. I just love it.
THE MILLENNIAL LOOK
Steph loves jean jackets because she is very inspired by the Nineties. She grew up during that time. Jean jackets are very trendy among today’s millennials. She says they are a perfect asset to any outfit. Steph really likes the distressed and oversized design of this jacket. The unique pearl embellishments make any outfit a true stand out.
