This summer, the band jacket has dropped the “I’m-with-the-band” attitude. These band jackets have gone all democratic and have been noticeably present as fashion styles on the runway and even on the streets. Their structured boxy shape, embedded gold and silver buttons, and symmetrical design are great details to add to your style. Before you plan to sport one, know the tricks for them to look chic and not costume-y.
One feminine way to sport a band jacket is to wear them with a skirt. You may opt for lace skirts, maxi skirt, pencil skirts, and even full skirts that match the color of your band jacket to avoid looking costume-y but creative on your street style. For instance, if you’re sporting a band jacket in black with a touch of red in its neckline, then try to wear a full skirt in a solid red color. Then, polish your style with high heeled sandals, classic pumps, structured bag, and sunglasses.
For another feminine style, wear your band jackets as blazers on your dress. Band jackets typically give off a masculine vibe with its boxy and stiff silhouette. So, a feminine dress will be amazing underneath a stiff and boxy band jacket especially when the dress is made from light and soft fabrics such as lace, chiffon, and cotton. Paired with the ever-feminine lace, the outfit will look absolutely great and the contrast will be splendid since a breezy dress will contrast wonderfully with a tailored and boxy band jacket. You may also wear some lace on the bottom half of your outfit rather than underneath the band jacket so that it will be more noticeable.
And the sexiest way to wear band jackets is to sport them with shorts that can be a great unconventional festival outfit too. You may just wear a graphic tee or plain tee as your top and sport a pair of denim shorts. For a more daring looks, just wear your band jacket as your top alone and unbutton the half of it leaving your waist bare and sport a pair of denim short then you are good to go.
For a smart casual looks, pair your band jacket with leather trousers, skinny pants, colored pants, and tights. Both band jacket and leather pants are sleek when worn and this combination is very ideal for an alternative casual business outfit. You may wear a white button down blouse, lace blouse, floral print blouse and sport high heeled sandals, pumps, and even ballet flats as your footwear. Just polish your style with personality, wear gold accessories, sunglasses, and structured bags.
The easiest and most fuss-free way to wear band jackets is to sport them with denim jeans. A boyfriend denim jeans and a band jacket style are utterly androgynous so better pick a feminine bag and stylish shoes to add a dose of femininity. For a more bohemian touch, just simply throw on a hat and wear some boots.
Band jacket street style makes you stand-out from the crowd. So, be stylish wearing yours and make a statement on the streets.
