Sound off.. 1..2..
Ha, Ok. I never said I do not possess a goofy sense of humour! Hey, I sing and talk to my dogs every day, right?
I thought today I would change it up, as I like to do from time to time. Recently, I have worn stripes HERE, this look, and more jeans. I know I have a feminine style, but there are days where I want to “dress down” but look put together and have fun with fashion wearing something different. I have had this military jacket from LOFT for years and haven’t worn it much. I just decided, why not? I love the raw edges and the brass buttons, as well as the shape commanding a more feminine feel, not a boxy look.
My cargo pants in a complimentary shade are probably some of the most comfortable I own. I am one to buy something I like in more than one color, so I have these pants in 3 different shades. Continuing with the neutral look I added my cognac leather bag by Rebecca Minkoff, and my JORD watch in maple. The earrings are bronze from Sylca Designs one of my favorite Mother/Daughter shops with original and eco-friendly jewelry. The fringe wedges add some fun to the look and I loved the style. I had to add a bit of “Jess’ style” with my vintage gold brooch from the 1950s.
Here are some tips on wearing a military jacket:
Wear a Military Jacket with:
- White jeans or as this is a fitted jacket a pair of white trousers would look great in proportion.
- Mix it up and wear a military jacket with the unexpected, perhaps a floral skirt or over a floral dress for a mix of feminine/ masculine pieces.
- Stripes are on trend this season. A striped midi dress combined with this military jacket would be a great trendy look this season.
- Another trend this season is METALLICS, add a metallic sandal or slip on shoe to this look.
- Additional color. If you are not one to wear all neutrals, add a pop of bright color to this look with your handbag or other accessories.
