Everyone loves a good leather or jean jacket, but what about army jackets? Are they just for the tough, edgy girl? The answer is no! Army jackets have been around for quite some time now and have always been a staple in many Fashionista’s closets. Army jackets can be dressed up for a night out on the town or dressed down with jeans going to class.

The army jacket can be dated way back, to a time when it represented power and protection. Maybe that’s why so many girls love wearing this fabulous jacket, as it adds a little pep into our step. This jacket can be seen on many celebrities such as Nicky Hilton, Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham and Vanessa Hudgens. The best part is they all wear it differently, but each one looks great doing so.

So, how can you fit this staple piece into your wardrobe? One way could be to take after this Fashionista. She paired her army jacket with a simple black dress and sandals. The black dress is a great choice because it doesn’t distract from the outfit and makes what could have been a dressy outfit a bit more casual. The silver sandals add a fun, feminine touch. For an even more casual look, try pairing it with skinny jeans, a plain shirt and boots, and you’re good to go!
