WHAT TO WEAR: Spring

Spring weather here in Philadelphia has been nothing but finicky. I mean, it snowed on the first day of spring. Needless to say, transitional dressing is quite the task. Luckily, there’s one wardrobe staple that always eases the awkward time between winter and spring. Enter: the military jacket.

This Fashionista has mastered the art of transitional outfitting with this tomboy look. She styles up a military jacket with edged-up details to create the perfect spring look. This lightweight, green military jacket is a welcome change from winter’s dark color palette. She styles it effortlessly with a textured white tank top and blue acid-washed jeans.

For an extra hint of color, she accessorizes with a red, beaded statement necklace. Her edgy jeans get kicked up a notch when paired with these neutral, lace-up booties. The cool, cutout details of her boots make this look anything but ordinary.

I love the versatility of a great military jacket for spring. Whether paired with jeans and a T-shirt or dresses and sandals, this structured jacket offers up the perfect amount of style and warmth for the season. For additional trend inspiration, take a look at the spring 2015 runway shows. Designers from Marc Jacobs to Sonia Rykel gave a modern touch to this classic style by mixing tomboyish elements and hardware with feminine silhouettes.

One Simple Change: To transition the military jacket for an upcoming concert, play with proportions and patterns for a fun festival look. Swap out the jeans for a pair of denim shorts and layer on a tribal printed top.
