Military Jacket Remix- Pinterest Inspired Fashion

Military Jackets are everywhere this spring. My love for military inspired fashion goes way back whether it be the camo jacket I had in college (so mad I don’t still have that) or the navy peacoat I loved in my 20s. These past few seasons I have gone all in on this trend with my camo pants, my camo shirt or my military jacket. I may or may not have also just ordered a pair of camo shorts. Um, I might be in need of an intervention.

Despite the fact that it snowed last night (UGH), I am powering through and dressing for spring. Which means no more winter jackets, no more tall boots and lots of brights and florals. I am freezing, but happy (but freezing). My military jacket is the perfect lightweight jacket for spring and it has been getting a WORKOUT lately.

To get some inspiration for my jacket, I turned to my fave source of fashion inspiration these days. PINTEREST!! Here is my attempt at recreating a few great looks I found.

Military and Neon Inspired Look


For this first look I was inspired by one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Alison from Get Your Pretty On. I loved how she paired olive green and a neon yellow. I got this neon yellow striped sweater from Loft last year as I dipped my toe in the neon trend. I would have never in a million years thought to wear it with olive, but I love how the look turned off.

Sweater: Loft (similar)
Jeans: Target (similar)
Shoes: Younkers (similar)

Military Mint Collage

For my second look I imitated another one of my favorites in the fashion blog world, Audrey from Putting Me Together. I have long had a love affair with mint and navy, but again, I would not have typically paired it with olive. I love how this look came together and actually got several compliments when I was out and about today. I was unable to recreate the adorable mint flats because a) I don’t own any and b) IT WAS SNOWING (in April, serenity now)

Jacket: JC Penney
Tee: Target
Pants: Old Navy (similar)
Shoes: c/o Land’s End
Necklace: Groopdealz (similar)

How did I do? Which look is your favorite?

  1. Love these looks. I can not wear bright yellow anywhere remotely near my face (I call it the butternut effect). I’d definitely do the navy, mint, white and olive combo. I think they’d be great together on different pieces, too. I need to shop my closet and wait for the warm weather to return. My condolences on your snow. :)

  3. You were spot on interpreting those looks. You look great! I think I will have to pull out my military jacket now.

  4. Great takes on both of the original outfits. I especially love the added detail of stripes in the first outfit – adds some depth that the original photo doesn’t have. So glad you linked up:)
