One trend I have admired this fall and winter is the army green jacket staple. It has evidently been a popular trend by many Fashionistas, as I’ve noticed them all over my very own college campus. These cargo jackets are a pretty literal take on the whole military trend. Utility jackets are one of the most versatile items you could possibly have in your closet. I love them because they are casual, yet chic – perfect for walking to class in this brisk Happy Valley weather. I found this Fashionista on campus, rocking her Urban Outfitters green military jacket over her cream Free People sweater – a style that defines her everyday look.

How To: Dreaming of warmer weather? Perfect this outfit for when the snow disappears and the temperature gets higher. Wear a cargo military jacket over a casual black dress with a pair of high top Converse. Choose an oversized sweater like this Fashionista here, or even a graphic T-shirt for more of an edgy look. It’s a pretty versatile trend that works with just about anything. Even stop in your local thrift shop to find something similar to this trend. You’d be surprised by all of the vintage fashion you can find!
