How to Wear: Military Trend

On Friday, I posted about the military or utility jacket craze happening among us.  I'm definitely a fan of this type of jacket because of its versatility.  You can dress it up, dress it down, make it casual, make it trendy etc.  Like I said in this post, it reminds me of a classic jean jacket, which...who doesn't love a jean jacket?!  For those are you who are 'on the fence' about a military style jacket, I've put together some different ways you can style it.

So, what do you think about the military jacket trend? Which set is your favorite? Are you going to go for the polished look, the trendy look or the dressy look? I think my favorite is definitely the polished look, but I love all three and they all serve different purposes!  Set 1 would be my 'run errands' look (OK, maybe minus the heels), set 2 would be my 'night on the town' look, and set 3 would be my 'Sunday brunch' look.



  1. Now you're making me want to get a military jacket, except it will be too hot to wear it here soon. I love the polished military look especially with the floral heels to give a feminine vibe too!

  3. Loved this post! I am a day late, but I did read it yesterday. LOVE! Thank you for doing this! I love the looks, and I can totally see myself wearing all three! The polished look is my fave, and I love it with the floral heels!
