The Jacket That Reminds Me of My Teen Anime Obsession

Typography and retro patches are both great reasons to buy a denim jacket.

I used to be in my high school’s “Anime Club” — yes, my high school had one of those — and was overly into Japanese street style (think FRUiTs) as a teenager. So when I saw that Rachel Antonoff created a collection based off of the Archie Comics characters Betty and Veronica, I thought back to my Peach Girl phase.

The designer’s Black Denim Jacket — which is 25% off right now — is great for in-between weather or as a layering piece you can wear in the winter. The patches on the jacket speak to the inner me that is obsessed with typography, quirky pins, and of course, the color pink.
