The Military Jacket: A Fall Must-Have


One of my favorite casual trends for fall is a look that seems to come into fashion over and over again.

Military jackets are all the rage this season, which is great news for moms, because it really doesn't get more casual than this ...

Plus, the kids will take you more seriously when you tell them to clean their rooms while wearing them. (Blowing a whistle helps, too.)

One of my favorite affordable military jackets out right now is this INC Military Jacket (Macy's, $79). I just love it.

But if this jacket's not quite your style (or you're looking for an even lower price), don't worry -- I've got plenty more! Keep reading.




American EagleI love the simplicity of this military shirt jacket (American Eagle, $49.50). You could wear it with jeans, or pair it with a little black dress and booties for a hip night out.


TargetThis Xhiliration Military Jacket (Target, $24.99) is a cute way to wear this trend without spending too much money.


Arden B.I'm crazy about this wool ruffle military coat (Arden B, $98). It would look great with your favorite pair of jeans.

Victoria's SecretMake the trend your way to keep warm with this stylish military coat (Victoria's Secret, $148). It comes in several colors, including black, red, and camel, some of the hottest colors of the season.

Remember if you're going to buy one of these jackets that the simpler the jacket, the longer you'll be able to wear it without looking dated. The Victoria's Secret coat costs more, for example, but because of its classic cut, you could wear it for years to come.

That said, what do you think of the military trend? Will you wear it this fall?
