The Military Jacket

OOTD featuring a cropped military jacket from Shein - 1

Military style coats have long been a favourite of mine. Effortlessly stylish, they transcend seasonal trends and have the power to make even the sloppiest of outfits look smart and put together. Lately, I've spotted a few lighter jackets around with the same vibe, perfect for that transitional period between winter and spring. If we ever get there!

Mine is a cropped jacket from Shein - as I mentioned in my last fashion post, they were kind enough to send me a few pieces recently. I love all the gold piping detail on this, as well as the brass buttons. It definitely transforms a simple jeans and white t-shirt combo into a polished outfit. It's quite thin, so it's a bit too cold to wear this now, but I'm sure it will come in really useful once the weather warms up a bit.

And because one of something never seems quite enough (I'm greedy when it comes to clothes!) I've also listed a few of my other favourites below.

1. Missguided - This looks like such a good dupe for the fabulous Balmain blazer I've seen a lot of my favourite bloggers wearing. Might have to snap this one up!

2. Boohoo - I love the fact that this one is velvet, and looks as good buttoned up as it does open.

3. Zara - The subtle braiding on the collar and cuffs adds a luxurious touch to this cropped jacket.

4. River Island - A more casual take on the trend.

Which one is your favourite?

  6. I need to add a military jacket to my wardrobe as I have never owned one but always think they look great. I really like the Missguided one as I think it's a bit different with being a paler colour and it will be great for spring and summer :) x

    1. It's thinner than it looks, but I have to say they've done a great job with the embellishment. x

  18. The military vibe looks magical on you Kate! As you mentioned, I love how military jackets make for a perfect transitional piece for all seasons. It can be so hard to know what to wear in the UK in those awkward not yet spring/not yet summer months and items like these make those occasions so much easier! I'm crushing hard on your pretty picks too - that Missguided blazer is gorgeous, I can see you styling is beautifully <3
