WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

For many, the transitional period between winter and spring can be a confusing time. The weather can’t seem to decide between warm and cool temperatures and you can’t decide between your feather down coat and a light sweater. The sartorial indecision can be overwhelming, but there is an answer. The answer comes in the form of an olive green military jacket. The utilitarian topper is light enough for the warm days but sturdy enough to help you fight the night chills.

This Fashionista sports the perfect utilitarian topper with her casual ensemble. While the jacket is decidedly rugged, it can still flatter a feminine silhouette. The surplus jacket has a built-in drawstring at the waist, which accentuates the Fashionista’s curves. A white T-shirt and jeans brightened up her outfit and made it just right for her busy day. She complemented the look with layered golden jewels in her ears and around her neck. To cap off the look, she wore a pair of chestnut booties. The grommet detailing on the boots and the Fashionista’s gold jewelry keeps the ensemble from being anything but boring.

The best part about this look is that it is appropriate for nearly anything the day throws at this Fashionista. It is easy, breezy and oh-so stylish. So, what are you waiting for? Incorporate a little military edge into your look, too!

One Simple Change: For date night, swap the T-shirt and jeans for a sweet day dress. However, do keep your ankle boots on. The mix of tough and sweet is sure to make your valentine weak at the knees.
