While we love a good vintage scavenger hunt, there days when a) our wild goose chase for that just-right garment leaves us empty-handed and b) not even Allegra can help us deal with those "what-is-that-even" thrift shop odors. Our search for the perfect spring statement piece with pre-loved vibes has finally ended with this embroidered denim jacket by LA-based label Mother.
Inspired by the psychedelic 1960s, this oversized jacket features wonderfully trippy embroidery on the back and a worn-in finish, giving it that second-hand aesthetic sans the decades-old cigarette smells. The next stylish generation can only hope we'll be so generous with our hand-me-downs.
