Military Jackets

If you're a soldier of style, this season you must have a military jacket in your wardrobe arsenal. It's a special style that goes back centuries, but the fashion industry is bringing it forward.

Stylist Kimberly Powell says, "I think there are so many ways to make the military look a feminine one, but I think that designers have done that for us." With shimmer, ruffles and even color, you can make a military look yours. Here are some more helpful tips:
  • Add some sparkle to soften the masculine military look  either on the jacket or with your accessories.
  • Soften the military look further with ruffles  again, either on the jacket or the shirt underneath.
  • Buy a military jacket in a bold color to make a bold statement, but don't just pair it with black and white.
  • Mix and match heavy fabrics, like leather and cargo material, with lighter details like chiffon, bows, high heels and shimmer.
  • A tonal look (all one color) works perfectly for day, but military jackets work well for evening cocktail hour as well, best paired with a short, frilly dress sticking out the bottom of the jacket.
