Fashion is about expressing yourself, and for me that usually leans towards a more classic profile. However, it’s fun to mix it up and explore different fashion trends. As I’m transitioning my summer to fall wardrobe I decided to play with the military jacket trend and see how I could integrate it into my favorite feminine looks for the fall.
It’s All About Contrast
I love bringing opposites together. To create the perfect contrast take this military jacket which projects a certain amount of toughness, combine with a soft color palette and flowy fabrics, and you’ll create a look that’s sure to bring the compliments on. This first outfit combines a more bohemian pattern on a light airy maxi skirt that is casually on trend and perfect for travel. This was a great summer look and together with the military jacket and booties, it glides straight into fall.
Where did you get that?
I grabbed most of this look from Le Tote. I know I’ve been bragging about Le Tote for a while. It’s the subscription box full of great trends you can rent or keep. Read more on this blog. Grab your first Le Tote box FREE here. The necklace is from a recent sale at Bauble Bar, and the booties are from Nordstrom (true to size).
What better way to breathe new life into a classic dress than to pair it with a few trends? My family portrait dress was definitely a worthy purchase that I’ll be wearing for seasons to come. Take this timeless piece and top it with the military jacket, over the knee boots, and a cross body bag and it becomes a modern interpretation of individual style that goes straight from day to night.
