the army jacket

Not to be confused with the military jacket; the army jacket is a touch tomboy with a chic-meets-unfussy high-fashion flair. Pair it with denim and dresses, pumps or brogues. The slightly boxy fit makes it cool, casual, and a charming way to accessorize anything in your wardrobe; while the olive hue keeps it sophisticated {but never boring}. Seeking one for yourself? Here are 5 to love:

army 2
ONE: Current/Elliott the infantry jacket {$268.00} TWO: Faubourg du Temple sequin sleeve twill jacket {$118.00} THREE: Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer ruby army jacket {$150.00} FOUR: Current/Elliott the lone soldier jacket {$388.00} FIVE: Rag & Bone/JEAN the pump jacket {$385.00}

Faubourg du Temple's Sequin Sleeve Twill Jacket and Current/Elliott's The Lone Soldier Jacket are amazing choices if you love the look of menswear-inspired pieces, but prefer them to be slightly more feminized. The sequin sleeves on the former and stud embellishments on the latter add the perfect unique, girly twist without forsaking the tomboy vibe.

The Infantry Jacket by Current/Elliott is fab if you want to go all-out slouchy and oversized; while the cropped aesthetic and bomber-like fit of Rag & Bone/JEAN's The Pump Jacket make it a casual choice for the girl just dipping her toes into the army trend. And if you can't decide on fit, look no further than the Ruby Army Jacket from Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer, which gives you the best of both worlds - a little bit slouchy, a little bit cropped, yet a gorgeous piece for any fashion maven.

I purchased my army jacket on impulse (well, out of necessity) when I was in Vancouver. I'd forgotten my own jacket at home. One of the best purchases I made as I love it and it's so versatile.
