Building Your Wardrobe :: The Essentials

The military jacket is starting to become just as iconic as the classic trench. In gorgeous shades of olive green, this jacket is the perfect pairing piece for just about any outfit. What I love most about this jacket is that there are so many different choices of added detailing, such as an over-sized hood or edgy leather sleeves. Lately, I have been obsessed with leather sleeve detailing, so any jacket that has it - I'm in love! 
When wearing your military jacket, take note from these stylish ladies above and pair it with boyfriend jeans, black skinnies, or tights with a layered dress or heavy knit sweater. Add a pair of booties or these moto boots, for an added cool factor. And when the weather warms up, throw the jacket on with a slouchy tee, cut-off shorts, and Hunter boots for a comfy, yet totally fashionable look.
Below are some of my favorite military-style jackets + coats, from all price ranges. :)

Happy Monday, friends!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Cheers to a great week ahead.

  2. Love these jackets and I've been looking for one for sometime now. And I going to have to go and pick one up.

  3. I have the Emerson Fry thing and it is one of my favorite things in the world! So easy to wear.
