ALL IN THE DETAILS: Modern Military

If you’re from the South, then you know that this is the time of the year when the weather’s predictability is at an all time low. With freezing rain one day and sunshine with blue skies the next, it can be hard to decide what to wear. One of my favorite ways to deal with these quirky weather months is definitely layering. It can still be tricky, though, to find a piece that can be layered without looking frumpy or adding weight. The best solution? A military style vest! These vests have been all over the Pinterest and Instagram world these past couple of months. With the cool green color, chunky pockets and zippers and breathable fabric, these make the perfect layering piece.

This Fashionista shows us why the military vest has been all the rage this season. The lighter army green paired with a darker gray top creates the perfect contrast of colors. With a pair of perfectly cuffed jeans and caramel colored booties to complete the ensemble, this Fashionista rocks the layered look. She keeps her accessories simple with dainty gold earrings, long pendant necklace and a simple gold watch.

It’s clear that military-esque pieces are a definite closet staple for the cold or the warmer months. I love that they are so easy to layer, but are also so versatile!

How To: Want to rock an outfit with a military vibe, but it’s too chilly to wear a vest? Try an olive green jacket instead! Pair one with a T-shirt dress and a pair of Chuck Taylors for a casual look, or dress it up with a pair of skinny jeans and heels!
