Military jackets are back and hotter than ever.
From subtle, double breasted jackets to shoulder epaulets with brass buttons, the easiest way to make a fashion impact is with a military-esque coat.
If you like the idea of a military jacket, but the style seems a little too rigid, take a different approach. Pull out an old pea coat and sew on shiny, ornate buttons for an updated look on an old classic.
To fully embrace military style, buy a slim fitting coat with a stand-up collar and loads of detailing.
The beauty of the military coat it that it blends well with most anything from jeans to skirts.
Whether you choose bold details or just a hint of brass, military style looks just right this season.
