The army trend marches down the catwalk every few years, and this year it's the military jacket that has us all standing to attention. Effortless with a dose of cool, military jackets are your must have for this season; luxe it up with lavish fabrics or dress it down with streetwear, it's your new wardrobe essential.
Off duty military jackets for women
A necessity for nonchalant dressing, the military jacket is a style staple for those days when you want to give your outfit a cool-girl edge. Go off duty with distressed jeans and worker boots, but bring some texture to the look with a fluffy oversized knit jumper. Wear yours over cashmere to give it an opulent finish, and add to the aura with smart suit trousers and brogues. Military jackets are perfect to contrast with dressy evening outfits. Offset the style with a sequin dress or a skirt with a chiffon blouse, or go for this season's hottest evening wear with a metallic pleated skirt. Finish your look with patent block heels to reign queen of the fashion troops.
Men in military jackets
Take action inspiration from the catwalk this season with military jackets for men. Aesthetics and practicality combine with a fresh take on the trend, perfect for rugged day dressing or to give some edge to a finely tailored suit. Wear yours over cuffed jeans and lace up boots to continue the utilitarian theme, and throw in a sweatshirt or a denim shirt for a modern take on layering. Take your military jacket to the office with suit trousers and a chambray shirt, and continue the fashion slant with a contrasting pair of brogues and a scarf for winter. Give layering a smart style turn and wear your jacket underneath an oversized wool coat, it'll keep you warm and chic when it's cold outside.
