This Forever 21 Hot Wheels jacket pays homage to the cult car toys that many grew up playing with in the 90s. Embracing the fashion industry's current obsession with automotive clothing, the fast fashion retailer has recently unveiled a number of pieces inspired by both motocross and car racing styles.

In addition to its recent collaboration with Honda -- consisting of both men's and women's styles -- the retailer's Hot Wheels jacket is officially licensed and adorned with the toy's iconic trademark. Boasting red, black, white and yellow accents, including a checkerboard print and flaming car on its front, the jacket is both lightweight and machine washable.

The statement piece marries fun graphics with a functional design and is affordable at just under $60, appealing to collectors seeking an officially licensed product at an accessible price point.
