Good morning friends! I hope all of you have had an amazing week! If you know me well or have been reading my blog for a while now then you know that I’m no doubt a big fan of the utility jacket! I own several and definitely get my cost per wear out of all of them. The reason I adore them so much is because of their versatility, they can be worn dressy or casual depending on what you style them with. Below I’m going to share with you 3 things to keep in mind the next time you pull out your chic utility jacket – which is another hot spring trend by the way and one of my personal favorites for sure!
SHOP MY LOOK: (JACKET IS ONLY $59)
My fabulous army jacket is slightly cropped making it very fashion forward and incredibly chic. I adore this particular medium shade of green because it can easily be worn all year round. Since it is a bit cropped I would recommend pairing it with your favorite pair of high-waisted jeans. I’m a huge fan of high-waisted denim, in fact, I won’t even wear low rise anymore because my legs look so short in low waisted denim! Anyone else with me on this one?! The best part about this uber chic utility jacket is that it’s only $59 making it quite a steal for such a timeless and effortless jacket that you’ll want to wear again and again!
HOW TO STYLE A MILITARY JACKET:
1.) PAIR IT WITH JEANS:
You can never go wrong pairing an army jacket with a sleek pair of denim. This will create a casual ensemble perfect for so many occasions, guaranteed to make you look polished and put together and make it look like you didn’t even try!
2.) LAYER IT OVER A SIMPLE TEE OR TANK:
I’m not a huge fan of prints, snake print and leopard are about the only prints I’ll wear. When styling any kind of jacket I almost always wear a simple white or black cami or tee under it, I just think minimal dressing is so much for effortless and timeless. You simply can’t go wrong with pairing your utility jacket with a simple white tank or tee, this will also create the perfect canvas to show off your favorite necklaces of the moment!
3.) PICK YOUR SHOES WISELY:
Depending on where you’re going will play a big role in what type of shoe you pair with your utility jacket. If you’re going on a date night or a girl’s night out you’ll probably want to dress up your jacket by pairing it with fabulous pair of heels like I did in this post. These white mules which are a must-have heel for spring are super comfortable since the heel height is only 3.5 inches. If you haven’t already added a pair of white heels to your spring shoe collection I highly recommend it! The heels I’m wearing are by Gianvito Rossi and are a bit pricey, however, I found these that are very similar and only a fraction of the price!
On the other hand, if you’re wearing your army jacket on the weekends to a soccer game or to the grocery store you may want to dress it down by pairing it with a chic pair of sneakers. I wear my Golden Goose sneakers a ton during the week with skinny jeans, tees, and jackets and on the weekends while I’m out running errands. If you don’t have a sleek pair of sneaker you love wearing with jeans trust me, you need some! One thing I know for sure, I could not live without my Golden Goose sneakers! I’ve handpicked all the coolest sneakers at all price points below for every budget, happy shopping!
NEW DENIM REVIEW:
As I’ve mentioned before in several of my recent denim posts: the high-rise straight leg style is the ‘IT’ jean of the season! The jeans I’m wearing in this post are this exact style and very flattering. They fit a bit looser than a skinny jean yet they’re still very flattering because of the high-waist which makes your legs look longer and slimmer. They’re also flattering because of the chic ankle length making them perfect for showing off your favorite heel or sneaker of the moment. This particular wash is made from premium denim which is perfectly faded and has really cool whiskering making these jeans anything but ordinary. I sized down one size in these jeans for a more slim fit, I’m wearing a size 24.
