This Season’s Must-Have: The Military Jacket

Happy September! As the weather gets cooler, we get more excited about fall. Military Jackets have us so excited this season for an ongoing list of reasons! You can dress this jacket up for a night out with the girls, or throw it on to go out to dinner. Either way, you will be comfortable while still looking stylish.

O L I V E

If you haven’t jumped on the olive trend yet, now is the time! Olive is the color of the season and this military jacket will be the perfect statement piece to add to your wardrobe. Styling this type of jacket is simple because it pairs perfectly with many different colors and prints.

THREE WAYS TO WEAR THE MILITARY JACKET

1. The Military Vest with Stripes

Are you obsessed with vests? Fall is made for layering and this Fate Military Vest is the perfect layering piece for transitioning from summer to fall. Everyone is falling in love with stripes, and they are pairing it with just about EVERYTHING! We paired our Jolie Nautical Stripes Long Sleeve Shirt with our military vest to create the perfect fall uniform.Fate Military Vest

2. The Military Jacket with a Splash of Plaid

Plaid is another print that works well with the military jacket. Our Staccato Twill Jacket features plaid elbow patches and hood lining that everyone is obsessing over! We paired our plaid elbow patch jacket with a criss cross neck top. Let’s talk about the criss cross front tops for a minute… THIS IS THE NEW BASIC!! The criss cross trend is exploding and taking over the fashion industry. Personally, I LOVE it!

Okay, now back to the military jacket…

3. The Military Jacket with an Edgy Look

We have taken the military jacket and paired it with a black top, black pants and burgundy heelS. Edgy, I know 😉 Both comfy and super soft, this black Z Supply Tee is made from faux suede fabric. This basic tee WILL become your new favorite tee! The black ponte Silver Jeans we paired with this outfit are softS stretchy, and offe a flattering fit everyone will love! We added a splash of color to this outfit with a burgundy high-neck bralette and burgundy heeled booties. This outfit will make a statement everywhere you go!

Guys, being fashionable doesn’t just apply to women.  Men like to be just as fashionable and want their look to be on point.  One of the biggest trends right now for both men and women is vests. Vests for men are a very versatile piece of clothing that can be worn several different ways, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.  Throw a vest over a plaid shirt, put on your favorite pair of jeans, and that’s it. Easy, right? Pretty effortless considering you probably have the plaid shirt and jeans in your closet already.

Denim Fit Guide- Finding the Perfect Fit

Raise your hand if you dread shopping for jeans!

If you could see me now, you’d see that I have both hands up. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping but shopping for jeans is my least favorite thing to do. With so many different fits and washes, a girl can easily get overwhelmed and feel defeated. However, blue jeans will always remain a yearlong wardrobe staple, so finding a pair that flatters your figure is definitely important. To lessen your frustration when shopping this season, I’ve put together a denim fit guide.

If you’re petite…

Denim Fit Guide Jeans for Petite Body

If you have a small frame and shorter legs, I suggest that you invest in a pair of skinny jeans. A skinny cut will not only flatter your shape, but it will give the illusion of lengthening your legs! Bonus! I love the Flying Monkey Premium Medium Wash Skinny for petite girls. I personally deal with the short girl struggle, and I love that these Flying Monkeys can be easily rolled and cuffed to my liking.

If you’re curvy…

silver jeans, womens silver jeans, silver jeans for women, silver suki jeans

Curvy girls should rock jeans that show off their curves in all the right places. Don’t shy away from jeans that hug your figure, just make sure that they highlight your best assets and flatter your not-so-favorite features. For a curvy girl, Silver Suki jeans are the way to go. Personally, I love the Silver Jeans Suki Mid Rise Skinny. These Silver jeans have a well-defined curve from the waist to the hip and the dark wash provides a slimming effect.

If you’re athletic…

Denim Fit Guide Jeans for Athletic Body Type

It’s all about creating curves! Girls with toned, athletic bodies are a lucky bunch but when choosing a flattering pair of jeans, it is important to balance out a boyish silhouette. This balance can be found by choosing a pair of flared jeans. I’m slightly obsessed with the Flying Monkey Jeans Dark Wash Flare. These jeans will be fitted around your thighs and rear, but more relaxed in the calf and ankle areas.

Your best bet for finding a pair of jeans that you love, and look good on you, is to try on different styles and see what you feel most comfortable in. No matter your body type, I hope that after reading my denim fit guide you can now confidently shop for denim without second guessing yourself. Honestly girls, a pair of jeans that legitimately flatters your figure will always be in style, even while other trends come and go.
