If you are doing jumpers then as long as it's clean and sharp looking then it's technically ok. If you are showing with a barn or a trainer they may have standards beyond that. I definitely would stay conservative. What color pad are you talking about?
Also, if you are only doing jumpers (no classics, medals or eqs etc) then you don't have to have a jacket or the classic attire. Many people wear a clean, simple polo, nice breeches etc. Just a thought in case you don't want to spend the money on a jacket. You can certainly wear one if you want though.
You could check out you tube by searching for A circuit jumpers to see what people were wearing for ideas too. As long as you are clean cut, conservative with fitting attire you have much more latitude than with hunters. One of the reasons that I love, love, love the jumpers. I was just at a show and wore my half chaps and it was awesome!
