No doubt you’ve spotted it on the runways this season, but pulling off the military jacket look can be tricky. It’s a commanding piece, so it’s important to pair it with neutrals and simple silhouettes that won’t compete for attention. Take a peek:


Daytrip Military Jacket, $55.87 (On sale from $74.50), Buckle; Twine Necklace, $70, By Boe; Black Pull On Jeggings, $60, Topshop; Steve Madden Tyller Boot, $89, The Shoe Box; Glendy Cashmere Crew, $225, Calypso; Rebecca Minkoff Nikki, $595, Muse Ten

A cozy cashmere sweater, leggings, and slouchy boots lend a casual-chic feel to this Daytrip Military Jacket from Buckle. And simple gold accessories play up the detailing of the jacket without coming across as too flashy. It’s the kind of look you can rock for a date night, a happy hour with the girls, or a day of running errands, Skinny Vanilla Latte in hand. Done and donesy.
