Trend to Try: Band Jacket



I am a self-proclaimed jacket addict. I believe that adding a jacket to your outfit can instantly elevate your look. A blazer, a motorcycle jacket, or a denim jacket are all safe bets and should absolutely have a place in your closet. If you want to step it up and be a real fashion risk-taker, then may I suggest the band jacket?

If you are looking to channel your inner Jimi Hendrix then you’ll definitely want to rock this fashion-forward trend. But how do you actually wear it? I’ve got a few ideas …

Keep it Simple
Let the jacket be the focal point of the outfit by pairing it with a classic white tee, blue jeans, and a pair of pumps. This is a no-fail look and the easiest way to try the trend.

Dress it Up
Mix a rugged band jacket (extra points if its vintage) with something dressier like a maxi skirt or a sexy mini dress. This unexpected pairing with yield fabulous results.

Get Crazy
Take a page out of Jimi Hendrix’s book and mix your band jacket with some mixed prints styling. You’ll be super on-trend as well, as 70s style is making a huge comeback.
