Embellished denim jackets became popular in the 1980’s and here we are almost 30 years later seeing these again! The 1987-1990 hit TV show “21 jumpstreet” pictured Holly Robinson as “Judy Hoffs” wearing a very embellished denim jacket in the gallery below. Rihanna and Fergie both choose a jacket by Blessed and Cursed that is so very reminisce of the jacket from the 1980’s pictured above.
Originally, I was not a huge fan of denim jackets, but once I started seeing celebrities in motorcycle jackets I knew I wanted one. I loved this version from Current/Elliot but it was sold out. I saw Gap‘s Biker Denim Jacket on celebrities like Jessica Alba and Jamie King and thought it looked like a great alternative. When I went to try it on (and saw the price, under $50!) I fell in love with it!

A lot of celebrities have been seen out wearing denim dresses, which I think is a perfect look for summer. Accessorize them however you want and you can make a casual or dressier outfit. I chose the three looks below because I think they represent 3 different ways to wear this trend.
I love Jessica Alba’s look of her denim Isabel Marant dress paired with chunkier boots. The boots make the dress a little less girly and sweet. You could just as easily pair this with a pair of flip flops for the pool or wedges for a fun night out.
This dress from Surface to Air has a great cut and could easily be accessorized with a great necklace and shoes! It retails for $276 here.
LeAnn Rimes chose to take a bit of a sexier route by wearing this corset style mini dress from Lover. This dress is currently on sale for $283.50 at Net-a-porter but if that is still out of your budget, check out some of the alternatives below.
This dark denim dress from Voom retails for $104 and can be purchased here.
This sweet little dress just needs perfect heels to take it from sweet to sexy. It retails for $63 from Modcloth.
While I was not too fond of Liv Tyler’s Stella McCartney jumper style denim dress, I think that a jumper style dress has great potential and could be a basic that works from spring with a cardigan over it to winter layered with a tee and boots.
This adorable dress from Asos shows enough leg not to be matronly but still lends the possibility to be conservative by layering it with a tee or tank (like Liv). It retails for $60 here.
