Wardrobe Staple - The Army Jacket


It's official, army jackets have made their way on to the most fashionable bloggers on the net and into my heart. Paired with skinny jeans or boyfriend shorts, lightweight army jackets are the perfect layering item to take you into the fall. For more daring fashionistas, military inspired jackets makes for an interesting juxtaposition to skirts and dresses. Blair from Atlantic-Pacific does this particularly well, often belting her army jacket to create a new look of it's own. Any way you choose to style it though, the army jacket trend is a makes for a casual cool current look. 

1. Current/Elliott Infantry Jacket $268; 2. Asos Popper Parka $108 (similar here); 3. Gap Canvas Military Jacket $83; 4. MINKPINK Enlisted Coat $141 (similar here); 5. Rubbish Army Jacket $59; 6. James Perse Flak army-inspired jacket $350

If you're a "cool kid" you will have no problem scoring a real deal army jacket at your local thrift store, but for germ freaks like me, there are more than a fair share of new options in stores. Now, pick your favorite shade of green and your desired fabric weight and hit the racks!
