Celebrity Statement Pieces For Fall

Celebrities are always wearing statement pieces that set them apart
(especially since that one piece is usually worth more than my entire
wardrobe for the season combined!) Let’s take a look at the
luxurious statement pieces celebs are tossing over their backs, across
their hips and over their legs, this fall.

The Military Jacket

When you think of the structured, brass-buttoned military jacket
that overpowered the Fall 2009 fashion shows, two names immediately
come to mind: Michael Jackson and Balmain. With the untimely death of singer Michael Jackson, his kicked up military coats with sequined color, embellishments and heavy detailing took center stage paying homage to the flashy singer who was gone too soon.

But Balmain had already taken notice, littering his fall runways
with the high-fashion, high-statement architectural trend piece
complete with bulky structured shoulders and luxe tailoring. Celebs
came running and suddenly, everyone was wearing one from Mischa Barton in her lavish military/Grecian look complete with military-inspired coat, sequined gold top and flowy white to Rihanna, who overpowered her petite top half with Balmain’s military-inspired denim jacket. But it was Beyonce, who seriously took our breath away,
flaunting her curvy physique for a night on the town with husband Jay-Z
in a crystal-embellished silver-sequined Balmain military jacket worth
a whopping $11,410.

The military jacket is the centerpiece, so make sure you play the
rest of the outfit down, forgoing prints and overly-girly textures for
solid colors and jeans. Is Balmain too much for the taking? Marc Jacobs makes a more demure admiral coat in navy cotton moleskin. Throw it over a white tank and jeans and you’re good to go.
