This Week I Love …

… all things military.

I’ve sung the praises of military jackets so many times I’m sure you’re sick of my singing. But military is one of those trends that I encourage clients, friends, and readers alike to explore because:

  1. Military styling is always chic. Even if it isn’t considered “trendy” for the season, you will never go wrong sporting the look.
  2. It is such a fantastically vague collection of style ideas that virtually ALL women can find a way to rock it. Regardless of age, shape, size, or personal style.

Here are some gorgeous bloggers who’ve been rocking the military trend:

Seersucker and Saddles

With a military-influenced jacket and skinny camo jeans, this outfit has a whole lotta military going on. I completely love this, but either piece could be isolated for a subtler look. read more

This Week I Love …

… military jackets. Or anoraks. Or army coats. Field jackets. Utility jackets. Ya know, olive green, masculine details, incredibly versatile? My own is my thrifted MVP:


Already Pretty outfit featuring military jacket, polka dot dress, neon ballet flats

Already Pretty outfit featuring military jacket, white maxi dress, tan Diesel Go-go boots, spike necklace

Already Pretty outfit featuring military jacket, pearl and rhinestone necklace, tulle skirt, Tsubo Dufay, Foley + Corinna Jet Set


And many more.

And I find that just about every style consult client I work with – both in-person and online – ends up with a military jacket in her post-consult wardrobe picks. It’s a piece that can work in casual and arty offices, but works best for fun, weekend wear. It’s a fantastic piece to throw into a floofy, princess-y outfit to create contrast. It’s a piece that can be bought for $1,000 at the designer level or thrifted for $1. It’s a piece that can sub for a blazer or jean jacket if neither suits you. And it’s an entire family of garments, so there’s a style that works for just about every body, budget, and personal style. read more
