STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Army Green

An army green jacket is a wardrobe staple for men and women this fall and winter.  From walking to class, going on a date or keeping warm in chilly weather, this jacket is versatile.  This Fashionisto (one of my most fashionable guy friends) thinks every guy should invest in a stylish warm coat. He wears it all the time with different outfits.

In this case, he’s wearing his green Orvis jacket over a crisp white J.Crew shirt. Orvis no longer sells the exact coat he’s wearing, but here’s a very close replica on their website. The best part about his jacket is he didn’t have to compromise on style to stay warm. His black Levi Brand Jeans and brown Doc Martens complete his simple yet stylish look. This is an outfit he would wear while heading to a viola lesson for the day. On really cold days in Athens, he usually throws on a scarf for extra warmth.

Guys, don’t be afraid to stray away from a boring black or brown jacket. This is a great way to subtly incorporate some color in your wardrobe. I know a lot of guys that are timid about wearing colors outside of their comfort zones. Girls can be the exact same way. My advice is to start off with a color like army green because it can go with lots of things. Eric could easily wear this jacket over a T-shirt and regular wash denim for a casual day.

The next time you’re out shopping and see a jacket that stands out, don’t be afraid to try it! An army green jacket might just become a wardrobe favorite.
