Don’t follow the band -- be the leader!

We have been blogging about this style of jacket for at least six months -- and it still doesn’t seem to get old!

I love this Military Patrol Jacket because it’s a mix of Jimi Hendrix, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Michael Jackson -- very rock and roll. Beyonce Knowles was one of the first to go out with this jacket originally designed by Balmain for roughly $6,000. Then, other celebs from Rihanna to Victoria Beckham to Kim Kardashian (in a J.C. Penney's version!) followed.

This jacket looks fresh with skinny, wide or boyfriend jeans. A simple tank or T-shirt can be worn and this is also a great look to go into the holidays.

A trendy military-inspired jacket featuring a wool-blend construction with a 7-frog buttoned front closure, 2-faux pocket welts, shoulder buttoned epaulets, satin lining, and a finished hem. Lightly padded at the shoulders for shape. Medium weight.
