I just never gravitated towards it for some reason.
I mean seriously....a great military jacket looks good with everything!
Including leather shorts and white laces dresses apparently.
Check out the military jacket in all it's glory:
and slowly but surely I started pulling mine out to wear.
And what do you know, it is now one of the go-to items in my closet....if not THE item!
Well played social media, well played.
I can throw this jacket on and elevate the look immediately.
Mine makes me feel stylish and put together! Even when I'm just wearing jeans a t-shirt with it!
They are SO VERSATILE!
In fact, I was wearing my first one so often, that I even ended up getting myself a 2nd one from Nordstrom! It's different than my first one (a little darker color, longer, and more simple), and I totally was able to justify the purchase.
So glad I did because I wore the heck out of this one too!
Here are some looks I've created with the new jacket.
In fact, I think I might even like 2 of them more than mine.
Can I get a 3rd military jacket?
Would you guys judge me?
My top 2 favs are a little expensive, but I love them.
I am dying...DYING over THIS one!!!!!
THIS one is simple and classic and I love it.
There is THIS one that is the same maker of mine (Caslon).
Check out THIS one with faux leather sleeves!
HERE is a plus size option that is soooo cute! More plus size options HERE.
There is a short version HERE.
(See how a sleeveless version is styled in the 3rd Pinterest collage at the top of this post.)
I'm thinking stripes would be fab under it.
I gravitated towards my military jackets all fall and winter, and now I'm doing it this spring too.
You will be pleasantly surprised how much wear you will get out of it.
It is pretty much seasonless (just act like that's a word) and as mentioned previously, it goes with your whole closet.
Well, maybe everything except your red cocktail dress.
But you could probably make it work.
but I feel this situation truly calls for it.
So just in case you need a little push, it's peer pressure time.
If you want to be cool, you need one of these jackets.
Your closet NEEDS a jacket like this to be complete. And listen, I've done the legwork for you. I've scoured internet land for the best selection of jackets and presented them to you in one place. All you have to do is decide which one is your fav. You're welcome. ;)
I dare you to look at this collage again and try to convince me that you don't need 1 in your closet.
I didn't think so.
I rest my case.
