Hi Ladies! Earlier this fall I partnered with Talbots to bring you a fabulous Fall jacket that’s a real traffic stopper! Check out this fun marching band jacket that I’m having a ball with! The whole outfit is on sale for Boxing Day!
It’s starting to get a little nippy out now we’re into September, and a great fall jacket that you can throw on with jeans makes the perfect transitional piece. I’m in love with this darling, red marching band jacket with it’s snappy tailored fit and cool military vibe.
This cute, cropped jacket is an easy way to upscale a casual outfit and give it a perky look. Marching band jackets are, you guessed it, inspired by marching bands.
Some are very elaborate with braiding and embellishment and look almost like a costume (Think Sergeant Pepper). This one is perfectly pared down for everyday wear and has a commanding double row of decorative buttons and a hook and bar closure.
I love the way this figure-flattering jacket sits just above the hip. It’s got a very feminine fit and just enough stretch to feel comfy without losing its strong shape.
I’ve paired my marching band style jacket with this cute striped tee and these chic jeggings, but a plain white tee would be fine too. A dark wash is always so elegant, and the gold buttons at the ankles are a gorgeous touch. These jeggings are also super comfy!
Red, white, and blue is always a striking color combination, and it works year-round, which is handy. Did you notice my shoes?
These tweed mules are so sophisticated. They have a nubby texture with a bit of metallic thread running throughout and big decorative buckles. It’s so easy to look pulled together when you have the perfect shoes to co-ordinate with your outfit. These mules are such a classy finishing touch.
You could also wear this marching band jacket with plain jeans, but I find that a touch of gold at the ankle is chic and slimming.
How do you like these striped jeans? This is look # 2 with this jacket. These jeans are not as long as the ankle button jeggings, and they’re cropped. If you a more creative look, then this mixing of stripes on the top and bottom of your outfit is a good way to achieve that.
I’ve also listed a few more options to mix and match with these versatile pieces below.
