Friday, November 07, 2014 Simone - Your Style Architect 7 Comments

Hi everyone !

Weather has changed almost immediately from the click of the change of month - being much cooler and the need for outerwear. It is so refreshing!

Jackets are starting to be pulled out of closets as compared to last week. Another spin off that was recently done on #PinnedItSpinnedIt on Instagram, I had to share this casual outfit of the day look with you.  Was browsing through the stores yesterday and noticed although it isn't a typical FALL trend to follow however racks in Zara, H&M & Forever 21 ( just to name a few) was lined with military styled jackets of a myraid of variations that it was hard not to pick it up, that this is definitely a trend to follow this Fall / Winter 2014.

This is an old jacket of mine, but it has warmed me up many a cooler nights in Singapore and cooler days here in HK. Loving this Olive colour, this style of jacket has been transcending seasonal changes in terms of style and colour. A basic must-have piece to have in your closet.

Hollywood celebrities trending the Military Jacket look

Those of you who have been following Kate Middleton's looks would agree with me that she certainly loves this style seeing that quite a few of her outfits which she has been recycling in her closet are very inclined towards military inspired looks. Like the Short Crop Navy Blue Jacket ( see last picture below). A must-have if you haven't noticed on most of her overseas trips.

As promised, I have put together a look for each day of the week to inspire you to trend the Military Jacket this Fall. I particularly chose outfits with skirts as its almost " by default" that one would often think of styling military jackets with jeans/ pants. Hence this inspiration board will help you take your creativity a step further with skirts for Fall/ Winter. So, which is your favourite look?

    1. Thanks Inge. Got them whilst back in Singapore by Charles & Keith but you may be able to still get them online. They do have an online store and believe me - very comfy and easy to walk in as it's platform.

  4. The boy-ish looking military jacket still looks feminine with those heels. Great!
