Military style jackets are being featured in almost every store I go in lately, and I cannot get enough of them! Sure, the camouflage style might be a bit trendy, but the solid style is definitely a classic, just like the jean jacket! If I had my choice out of all 11 styles and budget didn't matter, I'd definitely go for #3, the J.Crew Boyfriend Fatigue Jacket for $168.  It's sophisticated, vintage military look makes this jacket chic for any casual occasion. If I am considering my budget, my pick would be #2, the Forever 21 Buckled Utility Jacket for $33. It hits all the same notes that the J.Crew jacket hits, but has a much cheaper price tag!

I have to share with you all...I went into Gap yesterday to try on #8, and I was sadly disappointed with it!  It had no shape on me and made me look very boxy. Big let down from Gap my friends. I had high hopes.

Are you feeling the military trend? Would you go all out camo trendy or stay safe and classic with a solid print?
Which style is your favorite?

Good news! My Butterflies and Bling post is being featured on Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins and Face It Catalog today!  Head on over to these lovely ladies' blogs and check it out!


  1. Great post!
    I just got my boyfriend fatique jacket from the crew and love,love it.
    It fits great(after i found thd right size)and is so soft.
    I reviewed it if you are interested here..


  2. I have had a hard time getting into the military trend. Not because I don't like it, but because I don't really know how to pull it off. I always think it is so cute styled on everyone else though! Maybe it's just not "me." I don't think I would go all out camo, but I am loving the jackets that have the subtle military look to them. #1 is my fave, and I was surprised when I clicked and saw it was from JCP! Bonus! Great post and great picks! Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  4. Funny that you didn't like the Gap jacket. I went in and fell in love with it on me! Now I have both a fatigue jacket and a camo jacket. I love the military look!
