The BB Dakota Jacket That Caused A Frenzy With Twilight Fans (And Got Its Own Spinoff)

This jacket is the stuff legends are made of: according to WWD, back in 2008, during filming for a little movie called Twilight, a stylist needed something cool for Kristen Stewart to wear in a scene with her vampire boyfriend in a mossy grove.

What happened next was unexpected: not only did Twilight become a worldwide phenomenon, but this little BB Dakota  jacket got more than it’s fifteen minutes of fame: it got really famous–and was even named the Twilight jacket. Not only is it still on-trend, it’s also just $55.

If your size isn’t available, but you still want to get a piece of Twilight, you’re in luck. It seems BB Dakota’s been inspired to create an entire line out of the phenomenon. Come fall, expect an entire line of clothes we could see Bella wearing, including shoes, dresses, hip plaid shirts, skinny corduroy jeans and hoodies, which,  according to WWD, “all revolving around the still-in-demand jacket.” See photo below for a preview.

We love clothes with stories behind them, and this one is definitely one for the fashion history books. And of course, we look forward to fall, when we can get our hands on some of this stuff. Get your own plaid shirt now, then take a look through the very best skinny jeans, and our even our vampire-inspired looks for good measure.
