The Military Jacket Marches Into Style

There are a lot of reasons that fashion turns to the armed services but this time I think it actually has more to do with Michael Jackson than the economy. The current military inspired jacket is a little more military band member than the traditional camo jacket of the past. The current look is very reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s flamboyant yet militant style.

In keeping with the Michael Jackson style look for a jacket that has a bit of a military look but a lot of bling and glam. The LaROK Captain Glam Jacket almost screams Michael Jackson and I believe if they gloved one were still alive this is a jacket he’d definitely wear. The look maximizes on military touches like the top flap hip pockets and the double breasted cut. It also takes a few leads from marching bands with its Mandarin collar and the beading and rhinestones. All it really needs now is some epaulettes like the Alice + Olivia Shrunken Military Jacket with Embellishments.

If you’d like to adopt this style but aren’t really ready to join the band (or the military) opt for a dark neutral colored double breasted blazer, like the Elizabeth and James Double Breasted Blazer. This look has just a hint of military style but is very feminine and understated and looks good with just about any outfit, from boyfriend jeans to that little black dress.
