8 Inspired Ways to Wear a Military Vest/Jacket

As modeled, of course, by some of our fave Washington style bloggers.

One of our favorite just-for-fun fashion pieces is a utilitarian-style vest or jacket. Simultaneously structured and relaxed, this classic menswear-inspired piece brings a hint of vintage Americana to any outfit it tops. And, thanks to the genius styling lessons of Jenna Lyons and the J.Crew catalog, there’s almost no wrong way to wear it. Old Navy is nearly sold out of its ultra-affordable version, but Free People has a bevvy of interesting options; we also like this jacket and this vest at Rugby. This on-sale Vince Camuto option ain’t too shabby, either. Need further proof that this trendy piece deserves a spot in your wardrobe? Click through our slideshow for eight ways to style it, courtesy of some of the area’s most on-point style bloggers.

  • People never really ran out of ways on how to look fashionable and trendy. Military jackets indeed makes a fashion statement.

  • Princess Diana has chosen military jackets at certain times and so is Kate Middleton. I love them both and often wear military jackets. Military bring a rough look but still enhances feminine side of my personality.
