5 Ways to Wear the Military Jacket

SS18 has re-enlisted the military jacket into the fashion frontline, with the utilitarian staple making its mark through plush new textures, statement details and bold styling. Here are five ways to wear it…

 

1. At Ease

 

Press pause on everything you knew about the military jacket. No longer reserved solely for wearing over wind-blown boho dresses, this statement design will add structure to summer’s most low-key looks – tees and denim shorts included. Finish with simple tan accessories.

 

2. Shades of Red

 

Red has been the colour du jour for several seasons now, commanding attention through subtle details and head-to-toe styling. Make a case for the latter with a military jacket thrown over free-flowing florals in the same stand-out shade, offsetting the eclectic ensemble with glimmering gold sandals.   

 

3. Duty Calls

 

Give your blazer a break – this season, the military trend is entering the nine-to-five agenda, offering a fashion-forward alternative to classic cover-ups. Everyone knows that a white blouse and tapered trousers make for a chic combination but it is the addition of soldier-like styles that transform your office attire into something altogether more impactful.

 

4. New Cool

 

Need a new weekend uniform? This season, put your trust in the military jacket, layering it over camis and blue-wash boyfriend jeans (extra points if they comes with floral-print patches) for an off-duty outfit choice that epitomises effortless cool. To save the look from being considered too casual, swap sneakers for a pair of wedges.

 

5. Clash Course

 

A statement-maker in its own right, the military jacket packs a further punch when combined with other hero pieces. Put the theory into practice with a wide-leg jumpsuit, opting for structured stripes over anything too fussy. Add on a cross-body bag and white trainers for city break perfection.
