Ways To Style The Military Jacket Trend This Fall

Currently frog-marching its way back to the high street, the military jacket returns as a hot-ticket favourite this season. This jacket is no stranger to the catwalk and has been spotted in recent fashion shows from Gucci to Burberry (the original maker of the trench coat). Inspiration for designers this season comes from 18th century French and British uniforms, navy trench and peacoats, and navy jackets.

So what can you expect?

Like the band jackets worn by rock stars like Jimi Hendrix or Michael Jackson, the more “embellished” jackets use the bling of gold buttons, braiding and rope. If this doesn’t take your fancy, other designers have adopted silhouettes with simple brass buttons, or simple piping around pockets and necklines. Whatever your preference, there is a military jacket for everyone. The only restriction is your imagination.
