I’ve tried on so many military style jackets over the years, but I never pulled the trigger on any of them. I was worried I wouldn’t wear it enough. So when I found this gorgeous lace trimmed one, I sat down and made a list of all the ways I could wear it. Below are just six of the ways that I thought of all perfect for the fall season from date night, casual fall outfits, and holiday dinners. I styled it with heels and boots and booties, with plaids and solid neutrals and pops of color. Whether you’ve been thinking of picking up on of these or already have on hanging in your closet, I hope you found some new outfit ideas!
SIX WAYS TO WEAR A MILITARY JACKET
WITH PLAID AND BOOTS
This is probably my favorite of the six. I chose a plaid that was complimentary to the jacket color, all being darker fall colors.

WITH A CAMI AND HEELS
An easy way to create a dressy casual look add simple solid cami and heels. I chose to my floral print heels to add pop of color and print to the look. This outfit would be perfect for date night, dinner with friends, or casual Friday at the ofice.

WITH A POP OF COLOR AND BOOTIES
I pulled a few different colors to pair with this jacket, but this dark dusty rose is my top choice. I love how the two earth tones work together. Other colors I tried – yellow and purple.

WITH A FITTED TANK TOP AND HEELS
One of the popular ways to style this jacket is with a fitted tank top and jeans. I added a pop of print with my snakeskin heels.

Date night ready! This jacket is the perfect light layer with my fitted dress. The feminine lace details on the jacket really add to the overall look too.
