Military-Style Jackets

As everyone begins to buy new clothes for the fall, military-style jackets cannot be ignored.  Everyone from J. Crew to Forever 21 has options for anyone looking to try out the trend.

Barbour is a classic brand that has been around forever, but I have seen more people over the past year or so wear it.  This Ladies Rose Wax Utility Jacket has the best lining.  J. Crew even carries the brand!  The classic styles are the Bedale and the Beaufort that can be found at Orvis, but they do carry more fitted styles as well.

Speaking of J. Crew...

They brought back an old favorite from last year.  The Downtown Field Jacket.

The Waxed Utility Jacket looks very similar to the Barbour above, but is much more affordable at $148.  It comes in black and dark elm.

Vince Cotton Utility Jacket can be found at Nordstrom, and the longer parka style would be cute over leggings.

To ensure that you don't lose your shape under these jackets, you can belt them like the MICHAEL by Michael Kors jacket, or make sure it is more fitted.

What do you think of this trend?  I have to admit, it was hard for me to like these options last year, but the more I see, the more I think that some of them could be fun ways to mix up my look.
