Metrostyle fringe Jacket for 3 generations.

The Fringe Jacket by Metrostyle for 3 generations

Make sure you enter at the bottom of the post for a Starbucks giveaway!!

Most of us are familar with the stores in our neighborhoods and even the big named brands. But there are so many other options available to us now with the advent of online shopping!

Take for instance the company Metrostyle. Most of the women I talked to hadn’t heard of the company,  yet this site has a multitude of fresh and modern  pieces available that would work for women of all ages!

I figure part of my job as a fashion blogger is to not only introduce you to new styles, or how to wear what you have in your closet, but also scope out different venues at which to  buy our clothing. The advantage to looking into different retailers is that then you aren’t wearing the exact same pieces that everyone else is wearing!

Consequently the three of us are showing you 6 different outfits all wearing the same fringed olive green jacket! Since my goal is always to have versatility with the clothing pieces I own, I had each of us wear this jacket for a casual day and a dressier occasion! Now when I call this a jacket I don’t mean outerwear! This is a perfect lightweight topper to your outfits that could work for many seasons.

Jodie’s (the 50’s model) Casual Outfit: I tried to vary the colors I styled for all of us with this jacket! So for my 2 outfits, I tried to incorporate pastel colors with the green!

Green and purple has been one of my new favorite color combinations since I started blogging!

These lilac jeans have been worn quite a bit since I purchased them. I tried to keep the rest of my pieces neutral with a tan striped shirt under the jacket and snakeskin flats!

Jodie’s (the 50’s model) Dressy Outfit: For the fancier outfit, I placed a pastel silk blouse under the jacket to give a dressier flair to the look.

This jacket is a cascading jacket with no closure, so I got creative by placing a brooch at the top of the lapels. This created a more asymmetrical hemline at the bottom!

Since my usual idea of dressy is a skirt or dress, I wore a tan skirt and my new OTK boots, which are also this olive green color! Or if you’ve always wanted a faux leather skirt, Metrostyle has one that would work great with this jacket!

Nancy’s (the 60’s model) Casual Outfit: For Nancy’s variation in her outfits I decided to pair her jacket with all neutrals!

I started with an all white look under the jacket to really make the jacket stand out!

We left the jacket open for this look and you can see how the the fringe hangs slightly lower than the body of the jacket.

Nancy’s (the 60’s model) Dressy Outfit: For Nancy’s second look, we put the jacket over a fit and flare dress for her dressier outfit! She also shows how it looks over a shift dress in a post, here, earlier in the week!

We added a pin for this outfit but placed it lower at her waist for this look. Since the material is lightweight, it’s quite easy to put a pin or brooch anyplace on it!

The length of the jacket is a good mid length. It stops at the top of the thighs for Nancy who is 5’0″! Here’s another neutral dress that would look great with this jacket!

Charlotte’s (the 70’s model) Casual Outfit: For mom’s variation with this same jacket, we paired it with other fall colors!

I started with blue jeans since that’s the definition of casual for most of us! For those of you who can’t seem to find a reasonably priced pair of jeans, check out these!

Then I added in her red ankle boots, an olive print shirt and red accessories!

Charlotte’s (the 70’s model) Dressy Outfit: Mom wanted to wear her tan boots for warmth so we matched them to her tan sweater skirt for the dressy look!

I felt like a burgundy shirt and orange & red scarf reminded me of the beautiful colors on the trees that we saw while taking her photos!

One of the details that drew me to this jacket was the fringe! It may be a throwback to the 70’s, but that’s exactly what makes it stylish right now!

When I received this jacket, the fringe was flatter than pictured! But after one washing, it curled nicely to look like what you see in the pictures.

The sleeves are nice and fitted on this jacket and aren’t even too long on the 3 of us!

It could certainly be worth your time to peruse Metrostyles website and see if any of their offerings appeal to you! I would love to entice you to do this by giving away a $20 Starbucks gift card in the rafflecopter below. Think of it as breakfast on me!!

    That is a fun beautiful jacket. I have a tunic top version of it: olive and with the same kind of fringe. Love all your outfits ladies, but yours with the skirt is my favorite, J. Maybe it is the luscious OTK Boots which I love. Especially paired with the tan short skirt.

    • Jodie Filogomo

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Tracey!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amy!!

  • What a nice jacket! I never thought of wearing that color with pink or purple but it looks fantastic! What a great idea! I am going to wear my badass pants with pink now! I also love your over the knees boots. They look really comfortable and stylish.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Your badass pants would look great with pink Nancy!! I think olive green is one of those colors that really go with almost anything!!
      And I love these OTK boots—especially since they were so inexpensive—they stay up nicely and are super comfy!!

  • Love all the ways you ladies styled this jacket. Such a great color and the fringe is really fun. I haven’t shopped Metrostyle but I’ll definitely check them out!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Lana!!
      I love how the fringe detail is so prevalent nowadays!!

  • Judy Gramith

    Who knew that a light weight,knit , fringe jacket would be so versatile and cute on all of you. THE color evokes fall and so I especially like it with the brights that Charlotte is wearing but you and Nancy are definetly making a case for pastels and neutrals as well.
    This is a happy posting. What’s not to like when the weather is lovely and the outfit is perfect. Just perks you right up!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I have been on an olive green kick lately!
      At first I was disappointed that it was so lightweight, but after playing around with it for the three of us—I like it even better that it IS lightweight. Then we can wear it for more seasons!!
      Thanks for such kind words Jude!!

  • That’s a great jacket, Jodie! It looks great on all three of you! Great, fun styling ideas! Very well done!

      It is quite fun to show how items are ageless—if we’re lucky we’ll all be old one of these days, so might as well enjoy it!

  • What a fun jacket! The color is very wearable and the fringe makes it stand out. So much outfit inspiration in one post! Love all the ways you styled it.

  • Stevie Turner

    What awesome jackets! I love fringes and tassels.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You are my fringe girl lover Stevie!! This season is right up your alley—you should take advantage of all the fun items!!

      • Stevie Turner

        Yes I will definitely have a look tomorrow at the link you gave Jodie.

      • Stevie Turner

        I’d be interested in buying the green fringe jacket size 14/16 but not sure if I could buy it from the UK?

        • Jodie Filogomo

          It does say they work with a company for international orders: http://bit.ly/2fEo8Vl —if you’re going to do that, I’d sign up for the email to get the 15% off first! (you can always unsubscribe later).

          • Stevie Turner

            Can’t seem to order it at all. I try to add it to the bag, but nothing works.

          • Jodie Filogomo

            Okay….well that’s annoying! So I went and tried it—I ended up having to select the color & misses sizing even though there wasn’t a choice about that? Could that be the issue?

          • Stevie Turner

            I wasn’t able to select any colour or size. Shame; I’d have loved the green version

          • Jodie Filogomo

            Did you click on the misses box and the olive green color box? So there was a red highlighted box around those boxes (like there is around your size box)?
            I’m thinking they need to make their check out experience easier, Stevie! I’ll definitely tell them about this because that’s really annoying.

          • Stevie Turner

            yes there was a red highlighted box saying that I had to state the colour and size!

          • Stevie Turner

            After I’d tried to state the colour and size.

          • Jodie Filogomo

            Ughhh….Well that is quite frustrating Stevie.
            I don’t see a chat window on their site, but I do see a contact us page: https://www.metrostyle.com/category/get-to-know-us/contact-us.do
            If you call them and talk to them, you should report what a pain it was trying to order it. They don’t know if someone doesn’t tell them. …

  • Great looks! I’m especially loving the jacket and all white look!
