STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Coats in Combat

Come springtime, many Fashionistas are eager to shed their winter layers and dive straight into their cardigan collections. However, the tricky transition into a warm weather wardrobe doesn’t have to mean kicking coats to the curb altogether. Combining this year’s military trends with the classic denim jacket, this week’s Fashionista dawns the ideal coat for spring. Marrying the casual texture of denim with elegant military embellishment, this jacket can escort any ensemble from day to night. Its strong-shouldered silhouette and cropped cut is also the perfect match for oversized tees or breezy sundresses; not only making this statement piece appropriate for spring and summer ensembles, but also providing a majestic touch to your simpler apparel. 

This week’s Fashionista interrupts the cool-colored palette of French blue and distressed gray by providing a pop of color with her goldenrod yellow clutch. Drawing attention to her military-inspired piece, the rest of her outfit remains relatively understated. Her sleek black denim in combination with a solid pullover not only creates an effortless appeal, but also complements the statement jacket without creating clutter.
