Enliven your outerwear with a bold band jacket.
Seen backstage at Lanvin's Fall 09 show, Sara Blomqvist looked ready to lead the charge in a red military-meets-marching-band coat, adorned with gilded buttons, epaulets, and frogging details. I love the idea of swapping out your usual jacket options with this well-decorated alternative. To get this uniform-inspired style, be sure to check out sites like eBay.com, your favorite local vintage boutique, or Army-Navy surplus stores. These shops will be your greatest allies in helping you get an especially authentic accent piece!
