Military Jackets: A Welcome Change From Your Boring, Undisciplined Black Blazer
August 31, 2009
While at $11,000, Beyonce’s Balmain is a bit out of my range, I can’t help but love this incredibly chic military-inspired look. Military jackets not only provide a welcome alternative to the basic blazer, but with their structured shapes and slimming cuts, they can be even more flattering.
Check out our three picks below for some wearable options that won’t leave you looking like a member of The Lonely Hearts Club Band.
1. An ideal denim jacket or blazer substitute, Express’ double-breasted military jacket ($79.50) is super flattering and trendy without being over the top.
2. This military jacket from McQ ($550) adds modern flair to a classic angular military shape.
3. Banana Republic’s Heritage military blazer ($152) serves up the trend in an understated, almost preppy manner.
