Soul Singer, Janelle Monae is known for her sleek hair updo and black and white tuxedo ensembles. At the recent Essence music festival, the eclectic singer chose to go with a rocker-inspired checkered jacket. Flipping this rocker look into an outfit appropriate for work is extremely easy. You can copy her entire look in this image, with the exception of the hat and sagging suspenders.

It has been a bit hard for me to accept that the weather is cooling down and I now have to wear a jacket when I go outside. Most of the outerwear I own are winter coats. Since it’s not full blown winter yet, I was thinking about getting either a leather jacket or an army inspired jacket. I’ve been finding a lot of jackets that combine leather and army green. Below are a few light jackets that may be able to hold me over until November/December rolls around. Let me know what you think about the options below. Comments Welcomed!

I was Janet Jackson. At least that’s what I believed when I was younger, dancing along to all of her music videos, including my near death “Pleasure Principle” chair lean disaster. Tuesday night, I relived all the days I spent in front of the TV perfecting my Janet moves, at her #1s concert in DC’s Constitution Hall. It was the best live performance I’ve ever seen. She performed 35 of her top hits, never missing a step or a note.
Her look was stunning, structured, and simple. You too can be Janet! Get her futuristic, military-inspired look with these great transition jackets from Piperlime.com. (Click on the images to buy.)
