Last night, Bruno Mars headlined the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVIII. He performed a medley of hits with his band (love ’em), gave us a little bit of James Brown & Happy Days fever and showed off his drumming skills. It was a great performance, buutttt the first thing that came to mind when I saw Bruno was, “Oooh I love his gold metallic jacket!” Bruno and his band were dressed to the nines in metallic gold blazers with leather lapels from Saint Laurent Spring 2014.
Remember when I wrote about shopping in the men’s department? This Bruno + Gold Jacket situation applies as well. Man, woman, child — anyone can wear a metallic blazer. I absolutely love metallic blazers and they tend to be more popular during the holidays. It’s a great way to add glitz and personality to what would otherwise be a very plain outfit.
The tuxedo jacket from the TurboTax Super Bowl ad was also a winner.
If you were loving the style at the halftime show, check out my picks for jackets inspired by Bruno Mars’ Saint Laurent Metallic Gold Blazer.
