It’s the beginning of August, which means school is right around the corner. It’s a little nerdy, but I’m not going to lie: I still use the fact that I’m in college to go do a little school shopping. I’m not only talking about getting new pencils and notebooks, but also about getting a few new clothing items for the new school year. The beginning of August marks the time when you start to see all the stores pushing their summer dresses and tanks back to the sale sections and changing their floor sets to include chunky sweaters and lightweight jackets.

On a brisk summer evening I fell in love with this lightweight military jacket worn by this adorable Fashionista. She paired this embellished military style jacket with her Free People dress and heels for a night on the town. I absolutely adore this jacket, and so did this Fashionista as she claimed it was her “most prized possession.”

A great lightweight jacket is one of those fall must-haves that should be on everyone’s school supply list regardless of age. I think a military style jacket is a great option because it’s a masculine jacket you can put a feminine twist on. The military style jacket this Fashionista is wearing has embellishment that gives it the perfect feminine edge. Military jackets are also great because they can be worn as a casual piece during the day with a great pair of boots or as a dressed up addition to a night-out look with heels.

I know it may seem like I’m a little overeager to start shopping for the perfect lightweight coat, but I’ve already got my eye on a few great styles! I especially love this caramel military jacket from Free People, which features a patterned tapestry. TheĀ Patchwork Parka is also another amazing investment to consider!

So start making your fall fashion must-haves list and give yourself a reason to go shopping before school starts. Put a military style jacket on your list! You’ll thank me once this heat-wave passes!
