The military trend is in full swing this season and, luckily enough, military jackets just so happen to make the ideal fall coat. They can be fancy-fied with a faux fur vest, or warmed up with a great hoodie underneath. Add instant cool to your wardrobe (à la Alexa Chung) with one of our five favorite military jackets, each under $100.
Military goes upscale with this Aryn K. Zipper Jacket ($92), which has city chic written all over it. With exposed gold zippers and an airy, trench-like shape, this jacket will effortlessly take you from the office to post-work drinks.
This Gap Corduroy-Trimmed Utility Jacket ($59.99, down from $89.50), with its shorter length and belted waist, is perfect if you want more of a defined shape. Personally, we’d pair it with over-the-knee boots and a cross-body satchel.
If you want more of a relaxed, grunge vibe, look no further than this Threads for Thought Slub Military Zip-Up Jacket ($68) from Urban Outfitters. It’s super comfortable and we love how easy-breezy it looks with the sleeves rolled up.
For colder days, nothing beats Old Navy’s Faux-Fur Trim Utility Jacket ($59.50). And it comes with it’s own built-in faux fur– need we say more?
While this Charlotte Russe Jersey Cotton Jacket ($39.50) may appear basic, it’s incredibly wallet-friendly and will leave you with enough leftover cash to pick up a glam faux fur vest to throw over it. Voila! Basic to glam in under five seconds.
