The Military Style Jacket

The military style jacket is synonymous with fall. Once the weather gets crisp and the leaves start falling the military style jackets appear everywhere. It is not necessarily a trendy item, it is a jacket that comes around every year. Though the style varies from year to year, the essence of the military style jacket stays in tact. For example, popular variations have larger pockets or elbow patches. As you might imagine, there are tons of ways you can wear a military style jacket.

Transition your white jeans into fall by pairing them with a military style jacket. This outfit kills two birds with one stone. First, you bring your favorite white jeans into fall, because you know you can wear white after Labor Day. Second, you create one stylish and unique look. In this outfit, you want to keep your outfit color palette relatively light. Try to stay away from harsh contrasts. To keep on the military style theme, note the structured chambray shirt instead of a loose flowy top. Best way to complete the look is to add your favorite ankle boots and make sure to roll up your jeans.
The perfect outfit for transitional weather is a military style jacket with a skirt and gingham shirt. This cute fall outfit is great when it is not that cold and you can wear a skirt without tights. Since military jackets usually have an oversized fit, you will have plenty of room to layer or belt it. Here is a style tip, do not buy a military style jacket that is too tight, instead, find a perfect slightly oversized one so you have room to layer.
For a casual fall outfit, pair a military style jacket with denim and stripes. Most of the time you can add stripes to any outfit. Stripes are the universal pattern, somehow, no matter the outfit it almost always makes an outfit better. With four key pieces you can easily put together this simple casual outfit. All you need: a military style jacket, striped shirt, jeans, and booties. Accessorize to your preference.
