Style Advice of the Week

One thing that I love about fashion is the idea that it repeats itself. Wearing a piece inspired from one decade with a piece inspired from another is totally acceptable now-a-days. The 1990s brought us more than just legendary singers and unforgettable boy bands, they brought us the ever popular style of grunge. One of my favorite pieces this season that is inspired from the '90s is the military jacket. Designers like Elizabeth and James, Burberry Prorsum and Victoria Beckham all showed amazing pieces inspired from the '90s grunge army jacket. Whether it's tailored with shoulder pads or oversized and boxy, this jacket is one of the most versatile jackets you could ever buy.

I loved this outfit on this Fashionista especially the fact that she wasn’t afraid to wear combat boots along with her army jacket. It’s relaxed and '90s grunge but still chic and put together. The best part about an army jacket is that it can be worn in so many ways and you can pretty much throw it on over any outfit. Style it like this Fashionista with combat boots for a grunge look, over a body con dress and heels to dress down or even wear it over a maxi dress or skirt. I personally love my army jacket. It goes with any outfit and I sometimes have to stop myself from wanting to wear it everyday. When I say the outfit possibilities with this jacket are endless, I literally mean they are endless.

Since this trend has become so popular over the years, its easy to find an army jacket on any Fashionista’s budget. This jacket from Nordstrom has a drawstring in the middle giving you the option of a fitted look or an oversized boxy look. ASOS also has a jacket like this for a more affordable price. This jacket from Urban Outfitters is also a great piece. An army jacket with leather sleeves? Two amazing trends in one piece for fall! What more can a Fashionista ask for?
