9 Bloggers and Celebrities Show Best Ways to Wear a Military Jacket

Our intent is not to beat the same drum over and over again. However, enough cannot be said about the military’s influence on the world of fashion. Like many of you, I proudly have a closet full of military-inspired pieces. Trench coat, pea coat, bomber jacket, army caps; you name it, I’ve got it!

Over the past few years, we have witnessed an influx of camo prints on jackets, coats, pants, and accessories. With the arrival of fall, fashion has seen the re-emergence of pieces like the pea coat, trench coat, and bomber jacket. I chose the word “re-emergence” carefully as I firmly believe the military trend has never formally left and will never really leave the fashion world. Do you agree?

We are totally getting inspiration from the following fashion bloggers and celebrities who are also smitten with the military jacket trend:

1. Blac Chyna in Camouflage Coat With Leggings

The controversial American model, entrepreneur and former stripper touched down at LAX wearing an athleisure inspired look consisting of an oversized camouflage jacket, black leggings, Givenchy‘s iconic ‘Antigona’ bag, and a pair of black and white sneakers.

2. Aika from Aika’s Love Closet in Camo Jacket

Aika managed to make the camo jacket look chic by wearing it with denim shorts and a layered top. It also takes good accessories to make this look work. Aika threw in a pop of red with her bag and a little Perspex with her pair of shoes.

3. Flavia from Fashion Coolture in Army Jacket

I suspect Flavia can wear a flour sack and make it look stylish. She looks polished from head to toe in an army-style jacket and a leather ensemble.

4. Marilyn from Messages on a Napkin in Army Jacket

Marilyn layered a floral dress over a denim one, and then capped off the look with an army-style jacket! Very clever. It works, too! It’s a wonderful summer style to covet if you are feeling a tad adventurous.

5. Meri from Meri Wild  in Army Vest

Army jackets too warm for the summer? Try army vests like what Meri is wearing in this photo. She definitely had spunky and grungy in mind when she came up with this outfit as there are a lot of tough elements in it. Pile on accessories like statement necklaces and bracelets for a more street-style vibe to your army-inspired ensemble.

9. Karla from KQÑS Style in Military Jacket

It’s easy to love Karla’s ingenious play on the military jacket trend. You can tell she took inspiration from it, but her look is not overly masculine. She paired her army jacket with earth-tone pieces to keep the look cohesive but threw in a hat for that extra edgy look.
