Can fashion be practical and comfortable? Absolutely, military jacket is a brilliant example of that. It’s a great piece to throw on year-round. It goes with everything from basic T-shirt and jeans to glamorous maxi dress or polished pencil skirt. It compliments almost any color (from neutrals like brown to brights like orange) and prints (like stripes, leopard or florals).

A great tip on styling utility jacket is adding a luxe or feminine touch for the boy/girl vibe. As you can see from Olivia Palermo above, the camo pants, sleek boots on her enhance the utility chic while a floral printed blouse, haircalf skinny belt, designer handbag, ballet flats adding that delicate, luxurious touch.

I especially appreciate her attention to details: the pushed up sleeves showed off her beautiful sheer blouse underneath, a skinny or vintage belt highlighted her tiny waist, the unbuttoned shirt revealed just right amount of skin…

In Chinese: 时尚和实用可以兼备吗?当然可以,军装风的外套就是很好的例子。耐穿又耐脏,可单穿可混搭,既可以配短裤、牛仔裤,和长裙、铅笔裙等搭起来也别有风味。颜色更是百搭,无论配棕色黑色等中性色还是明橘、亮红等饱和色,无论搭条纹、动物纹还是印花,都很好看。

因为这种外套本身就有男孩子的酷帅感,所以我喜欢搭配有柔美或奢华感的细节来提升品质感。就像我们在Olivia Palermo身上看到的:迷彩裤骑士靴呼应了军装外套的酷帅,精致的细腰带、奢华的手包丝质印花衬衫增加了女人味。

我尤其欣赏她对每一个细节的注意,比如把袖子略略推上去露出半透明的衬衫去和硬朗的外套做对比,把外套的扣子打开既有随意感又可以体现穿搭的层次,但是加一条腰带来强调腰线。深V的衬衫也展现了恰到好处的性感。

Lily Aldridge for Velvet is my favorite collaboration so far this year! All the pieces epitomize her alluring laid-back chic yet pretty girly style. Every piece is a stylish, versatile staple: from the classic nautical striped tee to the perfect tank, from the dainty floral lace dress to the dressed-up-or-down leopard number.

As Lily Aldridge’s personal favorite piece in the collection, this army jacket on her (above) is definitely a must-have! Along with denim jacket and motorcycle leather jacket, military one is already a wardrobe staple that has been frequently spotted on celebrities & trendsetters. Combined with a sunny floral printed dress, the feminine-meets-masculine vibe is so effortlessly chic!
