From the streets to the runways and back again Military is never out of style.
You’ll see this trend everywhere because it’s functional, for one thing. And, like menswear, it has a tough, androgynous appeal.
I first fell in love with the military trend seeing Michael Jackson in his sequined military jacket at the 1984 Grammy’s.To me, he set off this massive trend of the Military Jacket.

My military jacket is an oldie but goodie. I took this jacket from my sissy years ago and paired it with a cream tank with lace ruffles at the bottom that shows outside of the jacket.
Treat olive green as a neutral. A military jacket, army jacket, utility jacket, whatever you want to call it is a ‘wear-with-everything topper.’ You can also think of military jackets as a layering option rather than just a jacket.
This ensemble is a conversation starter for sure! I’d wear this on date nights, or out with drinks with the girls.
