ALL IN THE DETAILS: Utilitarian-Chic

Spring has officially sprung in Cleveland; the sun is finally showing itself and the dreaded snow piles have melted away. It’s time to shed the puffy coats and trade them in for lighter layers. This Fashionista channels the change of season with the perfect spring accessory– the military-inspired utility jacket.

This look was everywhere during the spring/summer 2015 collections. Everyone from March Jacobs to Rodarte to Chanel and Stella McCartney sent this versatile look down the runway. The great thing about this jacket is that it can work so well for so many different styles. This Fashionista styled hers with a unique thrifted button down and cool combat boots. If you find your signature style is more girly, trade out the button-down for a flowy tank top and throw on some flats. You can edge it up by wearing it with a fun rocker T-shirt and black boots—the possibilities are endless!

You can find yourself one of these beauties in so many different places. Short on cash? Check out your local thrift store or army surplus store. But if you’re not looking to dig through thrift stores you can check out this jacket from Urban Outfitters or this one from Forever 21.

How To: Got your jacket but not sure how to wear it? Throw it on over a fun floral spring dress or wear it with jeans and a T-shirt and add on some cool jewelry to top off the outfit! The possibilities are endless with this look!
