Satin Bomber Jackets

Pinky Tuscadero, watch out! Satin jackets were back from their 1950s sock-hop days and looked better than ever. In the 70s, everybody slipped into the super-silky style of a satin sports jacket with their name embroidered on the front, and hopefully a super-groovy iron-on decal on the back.

They were usually in blue, pink, red, silver or green, often with stripes around the waistband and cuffs. Similar to baseball jackets, and often used as Tour Jackets by 70s rock bands, the satin jacket shone in a world of denim and leather.

Nothing looked better with a pair of Jordache jeans and a gold cross necklace.
