Fashion 101: Styling the Military Jacket


Military jackets are definitely a trend that will be staying, even throughout spring! Spring is not an entirely hot season which means light weight jackets and cardigans will be needed. A military jacket is a great light weight throw over that can easily go with any outfit despite its very distinct pattern. The black, brown, and dark green colors in camo are all part of neutral color families which mean that they can go with other colors in your outfit easily without clashing. Below are three of my fave celebs sporting military jacket with tips on how you can rock them to.

Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez is very casual and cool while wearing dark wash skinny jeans, black booties, and a blue t-shirt paired with a military jacket. The military jacket keeps her casual look from being boring and too simple by adding a trend and visual appeal through the pattern. A military jacket is such a great alternative to a hoodie or everyday jacket.


Kat Graham
Stud and spike detailing has been very popular and is a fun DIY project that you can do at home with a few materials. Kat Graham made her military jacket go from casual to glam with lots of gold detailing throughout the jacket and rolled up sleeves. Her sky high heels, black tights, oversized bag, and accessories add to her chic ensemble giving her a vibe of urban fabulous-ness.
Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens is known for her boho style which she always looks amazing in. Of course Vanessa will still keep with her bohemian look even in a military jacket. I love that Vanessa went for an all green jacket oppose to a camo look in this outfit because it is very subtle while still standing out because of its touch of bagginess. The military jacket is used as an accessory here in Vanessa's wide leg jeans, wide belt, and Wild Fox t-shirt look and it totally makes the look!
Are you liking the military jacket?

  27. The best place to learn mandarin Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
