A few weeks ago, another Boston University Style Guru wrote a post about khaki jackets titled “Lean Green Machine.” Green coats, especially military inspired, have become super popular this winter. A green jacket is a great way to stand out from the sea of black and grey jackets trudging down Com Ave. If khaki is not really your shade, but green is your color, search for something similar to this Fashionista’s feminine green jacket.
This Fashionista’s fitted jacket is rich forest green with a gold zipper extending almost the entire length of the coat. The pocket closures are the same bright gold zipper. She keeps the rest of her outfit simple and elegant. Her brown tights, gold earrings and brown leather boots all match perfectly. Her canvas and leather two-toned brown bag is big enough to carry school books in, yet stylish enough to use for other occasions.
To get this Fashionista’s look, start by investing in a green coat. This one from Mackage is a nice dark green color, while this bright green Calvin Klein coat is more eye-catching. Either coat could be worn past winter and into the spring. If you don't want green to be a part of your everyday life, try a green dress like this one from Nordstrom or this one from BCBGeneration. Brown tights and boots can be found basically anywhere and are a staple of every Fashionista/o's wardrobe.
Purchase a green jacket or dress and watch all the Fashionistas/os around you turn green with envy.
