Style Advice of the Week

Military-chic has been on every Fashionista/o’s radar since the trend developed a few years ago. The utilitarian look is still evolving, even today, with added fixings such as studs, patchwork and distressed fabric to keep it fresh. This Fashionista is right on point, flaunting her camo army jacket complete with studs on the shoulders and breast pockets.

This jacket is such a staple item because of its surprising versatility. Just like in the field, it blends in with a variety of pieces, both bold and simple. This stylish student keeps her look simple and lets the jacket stand out. She pairs the camouflage with an old band tee, black leggings and motorcycle boots. This Fashionista exudes a cool, laid back vibe, while the jacket keeps the look structured and put together.

The best part about an army jacket is that it works in any season! If you’re looking for a heavier version of the military classic, consider buying a winter coat like this one from Gap in the tough girl pattern. Stay warm in that bone-chilling cold while still looking extra chic. Or, try layering a lighter option over a white slip dress for an edgier contrast in the spring. Throw on a pair of classic combat boots for a tough-but-girly look. Don’t forget a red lip to finish it off!

Investing in some camouflage will open up outfit options in any weather. The utilitarian trend can be dressed up or down and works so well with a variety of different styles and outifts. A timeless classic, the army jacket is a style staple every Fashionista/o should have in their closet!
