Ok, so we’re not quite ready for pre-fall attire in Texas. But after a chilly week in San Francisco, I was definitely ready to gear up for fall. This is always a strange time of year to dress for. Boots, coats and sweaters are popping up everywhere and I’m still trying to get away with wearing as little clothing as possible in hundred degree weather.
The military jacket is always my no-fail, safe jacket when it comes to pre-fall dressing. I love the light weight fabrics they come in that allows me to cover up in cooler weather, without feeling like I’m wearing a parka in the middle of summer. Military jackets surprisingly pair with everything, even this feminine, flare white dress.
I heard someone yesterday say they couldn’t imagine themselves pulling off a military jacket and I was completely shocked! This is such an easy style to wear and just because it is coined “military jacket” doesn’t mean you have to keep the look “rough”. If you can wear an anorak jacket, you can easily pull off a military jacket just the same.
