Staple Pieces

This year, the military jacket trend has found its way into my outfits on a repeated basis. I love having the military jacket as a new go-to staple piece in my wardrobe, combining it with other, more girly pieces. For all you preppy followers out there, military jackets don't have to be rugged and masculine pieces. Below are a few options that can help "girl-ify" the jacket!

Outfit #1
Military Jacket V.1

Military Jacket V.1 by WhatMissLoves featuring costume jewelry

I wore this outfit on Tuesday. The military jacket is made feminine with the bow detailing in the shirt and the pearls. I always wear my pearls!

Outfit #2

Have an oxford button-up in your closet? They pair so well with military jackets, making them appear more classy and put together.

Outfit #3

Military jackets also look great with skirts. I paired a floral pencil skirt with a ruffled top, and of course pearls.

Remember that when shopping for military jacket it's extremely important to notice the shape and tailoring of the jacket. Look for one like mine that's featured that really accentuates the female body. Don't let it be shapeless!
What are your current staple pieces?

completely agree that military can be preppy. Through one on with great riding boots and an hermes scarf and youre golden.

I havent considered a tumblr too much. I think blogger has way more features.

P.S. you should link your email address to your blogger account for easy comment replies :)
