STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fixed Up Field Jacket

With the back-to-school season quickly approaching, college Fashionistas are on the prowl for the perfect fall jacket. While this spring’s favorites such as the denim jacket and tailored schoolboy blazer are still excellent options for this autumn, the field jacket has emerged refreshed and refined this season, making for the ultimate autumn overcoat.

Last fall, Fashionista’s donned the field jacket trend characterized by slouchy silhouettes and an effortless allure. This season, however, the wilderness-inspired field jacket is blazing a more structured trail. This week’s Fashionista dons the field jacket with clean-cut lines and simple structure. The soft silhouette of a feminine sundress contrasts the stiffness of an androgynous overcoat perfectly. She pairs deep navy blue with a gloomy green to create a cool-colored palette, interrupted by the warmth of a statement gold necklace and coordinating sandals.

This modified field coat combines the structure and a strong-shouldered silhouette of a schoolboy blazer with the textures and textiles of a just-thrown-on jacket. The unlikely match of lax and stiff-lipped style creates an overcoat for all occasions. Pair with leather skinnies and a denim shirt for a clean-cut look for class, or wear it belted with your favorite fall dress and lace-up boots for a more feminine approach.
