I was so happy to catch this Fashionista in one of our campus libraries today! From head to toe, her outfit screams, "So on trend! So right now!". Oh so many things I could point out about her look…from her pop of lip color, to her tied-at-tummy Oxford cloth shirt, and don't forget those pastel, lace up heels…
But, one piece in particular caught my eye…one trend that I've been loving lately, too…her uber chic, army green, utility jacket! These jackets are perfect to toughen up a flouncy, floral dress or to add an extra layer to your casual and t-shirt jeans look. Dress it up or dress it down – super versatile for all occasions! Dare I say that this military green is the new neutral, goes-with-everything color?
I honestly think London gals can take all the credit for this trend. When I moved here last September, I quickly noticed I was the odd chick out in a sea of vintage military jackets and preppy Barbour coats (all green, of course). Low and behold, a couple months later, every glossy was reporting on a trend that Brit beauties had been working all along.
With a little help from our editorial friends, the market is flooded with options! Everyone can and MUST pick up this spring staple! Net-A-Porter has some of my favorite options at multiple points by A.P.C., Smythe, and Joseph.
Give this trend the old military salute and go green!
