Sidewalk Style: Army Inspired
This week, we stop a student with grade-A style sense. By Rachel Cothran
Comments () | Published April 13, 2010

Vanessa Confesor, 15
Student at McKinley Technology High School

What she’s wearing: A vintage floral shirt with a jacket, jeans, and necklace from Urban Outfitters; Aeropostale belt; and Vans shoes.

On her style: “I like more casual things. I like to wear vintage, so I won’t have what everyone else does.”

What’s something you’d never wear? “I don’t like plain jeans. I like something to stand out.”

What are you shopping for this spring? “Flats, parachute pants, and cropped shirts that I’ll wear with skirts or jeans.”

Rachel says: Vanessa is wearing one of my favorite spring combinations: an Army-inspired jacket over something floral and feminine. This jacket style is popular now, so look for it everywhere from Banana Republic to thrift shops to Army-Navy stores.
