Just when you thought spring was finally here to stay, there’s snow in Wisconsin. Although these sudden bursts of cold weather are inconvenient, they are certainly not unexpected in the Midwest. Since the warm spring sun is not officially sticking with us yet, you have to be as flexible as possible when preparing to dress for the weather. Don’t break out your winter jackets and sweaters just yet, though.

This Fashionista executes a chilly spring day look perfectly with her leather detailed military jacket. Military jackets are warm enough for morning temperatures and have a laid back, relaxed feel that is effortlessly cool. The pins on this Fashionista’s jacket are reminiscent of military jackets filled with medals and add instant personality to her outfit while still maintaining the authenticity of the military-esque look.

To complete her outfit, this Fashionista chose classic black skinnies and a casual flannel. Finally, she adds black Dr. Martens, which are extremely versatile and more importantly, fun to wear. They add an instant grunge vibe to any look and are the perfect addition to this Fashionista’s military-inspired outfit.

How To: Instead of digging out your winter jacket the next time the weather takes a turn for the worse, choose a military jacket to give your look an instantly cool vibe.
