ATTENNNN-TION! If there’s one thing I make sure I always have on-hand in my closet, it’s a military jacket. And, let me tell you, mine get a lot of wear throughout the year. Utilitarian fashion has been popular for years and I’m so glad that this trend is here to stay. Lightweight utility jackets are perfect for summer (and pretty much all of the four seasons) but their versatility doesn’t stop at seasonality—they can be styled in so many different ways too! Here are three different ways you can wear a military jacket this summer.
Go, Team, Go
The next time you head to your niece’s t-ball game or go to the bar to cheer on your favorite team, try this sporty casual outfit with a red utility jacket. Paired with a simple tee and destroyed denim, your look will feel laid back and easygoing. Hoops and a baseball cap make for casual accessories that tie everything together.
I Woke Up Like This
You know those occasions where you want to look good but also don’t want to look like you tried too hard? Think bowling with friends, a second date, drinks with the in-laws—you get the picture. This outfit is perfect for those scenarios. A cool gray utility jacket looks great when layered over a simple tank while the flannel button-down tied around your waist keeps you on-trend.
All Dolled Up
Having the versatile military jacket in a camel hue makes it easy to pair with any outfit. When you go out for a night on the town, reach for this neutral jacket to keep you warm when the sun sets. Add a pop of animal print and trendy accessories like cat-eye sunglasses and fringe earrings for a little extra glam.
