How to take your favorite military jacket from winter to spring

Andrea Poppinga

A favorite style idea for many people is to layer with an oversized military jacket in the winter months. They are comfortable, stylish and can easily be dressed up or down.

Many people love the change of the seasons, but this generally means an entire change of one’s wardrobe.

However, to many people’s surprise, there is still many ways in which the classic military jacket can be carried over into the spring months.

Option 1: Layer a military jacket over an oversized T-shirt that is tucked into either a leather mini skirt or a jean skirt. Pair it with some converse of any color, and you have a street look for the daytime.


Option 2: Throw a military jacket over a spring dress if you are going out at night to spruce up your outfit. A simple jacket adds more than you might think. Tip: make sure the dress you layer it over is a solid color. If it already has a print going on, stay away from layering a military jacket, as the colors and prints may clash. Pair this with a pair of heeled booties, and the look is complete.


Option 3: A classic day-on-the-town look is to simply wear some skinnies, a fitted tank and a military jacket around the waist. Pair this outfit with the perfect set of pumps and a hat, and you are all set for whatever the day entails.


Take these ideas, as well as any others you may have, and explore how many different ways you can still put your favorite winter pieces to good use this spring. Be creative and don’t be afraid to mix it up a little.
