OOTD: Military inspired coat…

As a fashion stylist, blogger, and personal shopper it’s important for me to be aware of the lastest trends. One trend that never goes out of style is a great military jacket or coat with gold hardware. Inspired by soldiers uniforms, the  jacket has become a wardrobe staple. With advances in technology and fabrications there are thousands of variations on this classic piece. Classic pieces such as a Pea coat or military jacket will always be in fashion. By changing the color, fabric, or hardware details, that classic piece will be associated with a specific season or trend. It’s really up to you to decide which style you want to incorporate into your wardrobe. One of my favorite brands Tart Collections, recently sent me a fabulous navy blue wool military coat to wear at the Lucky Fabb event in NYC. Pictured below.

This was the perfect coat for the drop in temperature last week. Changing up the design details makes this classic coat modern and fresh. The coat is single breasted instead of double and has a zipper front closure with decorative gold buttons down the front. Personally, I love that I don’t have to button and un-button every time I wear this coat. I’m constantly loosing buttons on my coats. The fabric is a wool blend which is ideal for varying temperatures. Yesterday I paired this beautiful coat with a sweater & pants for a classic but modern daytime/work look!!
