The Military Jacket
Designer: Inspired by 18th century military uniforms, it was first made famous by Yves Saint Laurent and famously worn by influencer John Lennon.
Styling a Military Jacket
Wear your military jacket open and unbuttoned with a simple plain t-shirt underneath for a cool, rock chic look. For a more groomed and feminine look, fasten the buttons of your jacket all or most of the way up. Usually in fashion, over accessorising a garment will devalue its overall appearance. Interestingly, despite the overload of detailed design features on military coats, they can be styled to look casual and laid back or glamorous and slightly formal. The pretty button detail and (on some designs) the lace trim on the sleeves and collar add a subtle touch of finesse which is why you should keep your jacket buttoned up to accentuate this if you wish to create a feminine, tailored style with your jacket.
