Military Jackets

Inspired by the Balenciaga AW 05-06 runway, military styled jackets are all the rage. Their structural and rigid cutting instantly gives you a very well put together look as blazers do but with more of a twist.

I mean, who wouldn't want to look as ladylike and french chic as this model here, on the Balenciaga runway?

My top pick for military jacket is this one from Zara. The buttons and detailed structure gives it the military flair while its relative simple cutting and color makes it that much easier to match. With a flared flowing skirt maybe to counter the structure?

And this one here from Intuition is awesome too, because while the button gives it a military touch, the velvet material, the collar and feminine cutting can easily pull off the Victorian old english look as well! 2 trends in one jacket-what a bargain!

For those in colder climates (like moi) and can no longer wear thin short jackets, here are some more wintery coats to keep us warm and stylish. This double breasted one from BCBG with the round buttons is great (well maybe not green, go for the black one). Whats great about the jackets mentioned above is that they are so subtley military that you'll probably be able to wear it again next season!

But if you want to go all out for this trend, you cannot beat this denim cropped jacket from Top Shop. It practically SHOUTS military.And then there is this wool/cashmere/nylon coat here from Ll Collezioni at Bloomingdales, making a relatively more subtle statement.

I think like, 50% of people in the streets in London were wearing military jackets last month. Getting a bit too cold for them now, but they're still everywhere.

In Spain the 50% of girls wear military jackets too. Day and night. Well, I think they are cool.

I just bought my military mid-length coat! Got it from Mango at S$166 (~55pounds). It's gorgeous and fits like a dream. Pity I couldn't find a pic of it on the online catalogue. It's got big silver buttons everywhere - lovely!

It's my first coat but second military jacket. First was a Topshop piece I got a long time ago which I wear to death. Military's q my thing.

Looking forward to breaking into the new coat over X'mas in cold cold UK!

This has nothing to do with anything but...

I like a lot of different perfumes.

Clinique for school- Happy Heart freshman year, classic Happy sophomore year, To Be this year.

For my bedtable, any perfume that comes in a pretty bottle. Anna Sui, Cacharel, Lolita Lempicka, Ralph Lauren Blue, Violetta di Parma, Joy.

For special occasions, my own mix of essential oils- I <3 patchouli.

And every girl should own at least one leather-topped bottle of Hermes perfume.

I think it looks a little too rigid and uncomfortable.

I think that this is so overdone. it seems like every couple of years designers push this military look and no one goes for it. Way too trendy a look for anywhere else except London, Paris, nyc

If you put a good looking person in any decent outfit, they will look good. That is how these military outfits are.

I know the green jacket says it's from BCBG, i went on the website and it doesn't have it there, does anyone know if this has already been and gone since i am in AUstralia. Does anyone know where i can buy a jacket that looks similar, i am looking for a military jacket/coat..even the grey styled jacket is something i am looking for.

I love military inspired coats. The green BCBG is gorgeous. I like the shorter ones as well, but the long ones are just stunning.

This season you can find wool winter jacket both with and without hoods. Again consider your climate as a hood offers excellent protection against not only the rain but also wind. If you really don't want a hood on your wool coat then there are plenty available with detachable hoods so this compromise is the best of both worlds. Wool coats look great with plaid designs on them and are suitable for almost any occasion looking stylish whilst keeping your girl warm.
