WHERE TO FIND A GOOD ARMY STYLE JACKET

One of the outfits I wear all the time, the kind that I give little thought too, is this one. A pair of jeans, strappy heels, silk camisole top, and thrown over the top, an army style jacket. It’s easy, carefree, cool, and looks great on everyone.

If you ever look for a jacket that adds a little tomboy toughness over anything, this is for you! My edit and how to wear it is below… keep scrolling.

WHERE I FOUND MY JACKET

Before I go further, I should be transparent and let you know that I’ve had mine for over a decade. I bought it at a vintage sale of army surplus stuff at the Fishermen’s Wharf Market, a waterfront site near the Lighthouse at Port Adelaide. Now, if you are in Adelaide, according to their website, there is still a militaria stall, so you might get lucky. That said, I’ve not been there in more than a decade, so it could be terrible now. Way back in the day I used to shop for vintage there, while my housemates checked out the antique tools and so on.

I got lucky! But though these utility jackets can be easy to find second hand, there are plenty of cool new ones to shop too.

There are so many brands that always include a cool army style jacket in their collections. Anine Bing, Levi’s and Arket are a few. I’ve noticed a lot of brands label them as a field jacket. My other tip is to shop from the men’s section. Mine is definitely a men’s jacket, in an oversized fit. If you want that roomy look, go up a size.

Of course, I’ve mostly shared jackets in this classic army green colour but they look amazing in cream, navy, or camel too. Really, anything in those classic utility colours works in the same way.

I’d love to know if you would wear a utility jacket like this one and how you would style it? It’s been a great throw-on layer to pair with dresses, or jeans and a graphic tee. I also love how it can add an edge to a feminine dress.
