Hi Everyone, as you know once again it’s the first Tuesday of the month so welcome to the October Ageless Style theme: How to style a military jacket!
Nine ladies, showcase their version of this theme in their ageless style. It’s always exciting to see what each of them come up with. We never share photos beforehand so it’s a complete surprise to us all – I love the fact that we all come up with something so different and end up inspiring each other in new fashion directions.
Do you already own a military jacket? Having seen them appear as hot items in magazines, showrooms etc. I bought mine in Spring (see instagram). Initially thinking it would look great with anything and everything – but when worn with my long olive pleated skirt it certainly didn’t work (on account of the length). So what does work?
How to Style a Military Jacket:
Thought i’d simultaneously give you a little tiki tour of the garden today – loving fall and the fact the poi poi is in full bloom…
Being Fall I now like to team my military jacket with black – keeping the outfit as simple as possible with skinny jeans and a skinny long sleeved black top (one of those wardrobe staples).
Love these Sorel booties (similar here) giving the outfit a bit of a rugid touch.
For a bit of casual chic i’ll team the outfit up with black heeled booties and little black bag.
My all-time favourite little Prada Bag (similar here).
My favourite rose – given by my Hubby last Birthday (LOL xx).
In summary despite not being able to wear the jacket with a skirt i’m still thankful to have it as it’s ever so useful to throw over a black outfit for a bit of colour and warmth – plus my daughter likes to borrow it too!
