Millie Bobby Brown’s Cropped Denim Jacket on Instagram
Millie Bobby Brown, style icon in her own right, shared an Instagram shot of herself from what appears to be a visit to her hairstylist. All posed up in the barber chair, she asked her followers, “Straight or curly?” referring to her hair. But me — I’m the fashion editor over here — thinking to myself, “Cropped or oversize?,” and my focus is on her denim jacket. Millie’s is from River Island, originally retailing for less than $100, though it’s now sold out (don’t worry, we found a similar one after the jump). The tight fit and and structured, triangular collar with moto details scream ’80s to me, but wasn’t it just yesterday that Hailey Bieber was making the oversize fit look cool?
Whereas I left all my micro-cropped outerwear in storage at my parents’ house, I’m now considering taking a pair of scissors to my favorite Levi’s jacket. Wouldn’t it look cool slashed and distressed — just underneath the bust — with a white ribbed tank top underneath? Of course, I could go all out like Millie did and throw on a pair of matching light-wash jeans to really make a statement. Just to further prove that Millie was fueled by the ’80s with this look, she accessorized with a scrunchie on her wrist. Scroll down to shop her exact pair of Mother Denim pants and tortoise Vogue Eyewear sunglasses, then scoop up what appears to be the piece du jour, folks: the cropped denim jacket.
