Nothing is more of a fall staple than a cool army jacket. Army jackets are just everywhere right now, right? I like how army jackets are really becoming cutting edge with a lot of mixed materials being used like leather, beading, patches, and cool zippers.
Also, since army jackets are so masculine, I always like to style the jacket with a feminine flair – maybe a lace top underneath, wear with jeans and a high heel, or wear with a traditionally girly color like pink. Here’s a round-up of some great army jackets out now.
1. I’m starting with this Globetrotter Utility Jacket from Forever21. It’s a great example of an army jacket with personality – and it reminds me of my fave Zara army jacket I wore at Assembled last month. It’s also only $35, for real. 2. I love the Cotton Canvas Jacket one from H&M, when the jacket is fully zipped the collar stands up and looks very chic. And that long thin patch is perfect. 3. The Mixed Media Jacket by BCBGeneration at Nordstrom is just fabulous – the traditional army green jacket but with black leather sleeves. Love this one! 4. This Combination Jacket with Zips from Zara is such a modern take on the traditional army jacket, don’t you think? 5. The Outbound jacket from Madewell is the loveliest color green – and this jacket has buttons, which I think is the way to go when wearing the jacket open. 6. And of course I have to get my Z in on this trend so she can wear this Coat with detachable lining from ZaraKids. Technically it’s from the boys department, but that’s the beauty of an army jacket, they’re ambidextrous.
