Though wearing leather ensembles is known to be the edgiest style on the streets, you can resort to military jackets and coats as a great alternative to them. Military jackets come in casual and dressy incarnations that can be dressed up or down suiting your personal style. From distressed looks, drawstrings, camouflage prints, slouchy fits, crisp wool, epaulets, and shiny buttons, military jackets can fit your style and add some edgy vibe to your looks.
For a casual street style, you may opt for casual styles of denim jeans and shorts that will channel your laidback and cool looks. Denim on denim outfit like a denim vest and denim jeans completed by a military jacket will be great. Boyfriend jeans are another possibility, as are harem pants, cropped pants or boot cut jeans. Throw in a pair of sneakers for a very relaxed look, and edgy boots for a tough girl look. Structured military jackets with sharp edges and boxy pockets look great when worn with structured accessories while slouchy styles will be perfect with slouchy hobo bags and backpacks.
To make your street style chic, opt for plain and neat style of jeans without any rips, tears, or patches. Dress pants, leather trousers and other chic trousers will also work dressing up the casual feel of your military jacket. Pleated trousers with tapered hems will be great, but regular boot cut slacks will work just fine. Step things up with feminine pointy-toed pumps, colorful shoes, chic strappy sandals, as well as a stylish belt, structured bag, chic watch, scarf, or sunglasses.
Wearing skirts with military jackets and coat can make your outfit look dressy or casual depending on the skirt style you’re wearing. If you wish for a feminine style, opt for fur skirts, wool skirts, full skirts, pencil skirts, peplum skirts and such that can give off some feminine feel to your looks. Just polish your style with feminine shoes like classic pumps or stiletto sandals. On the other hand, if you’re onto the tough girl looks, opt for skirts in non-hugging styles, military shades, A-line style and such completing your outfit with a pair of edgy boots or shoes.
Wearing dresses with military jackets and coats will be great for giving a great balance on femininity and edginess of your outfit. Lace dresses, diaphanous dresses, off-shoulder dresses, fit-and-flare dresses, and maxi dresses are feminine enough to dress up your outfit while navy collared dresses and button down shirtdresses are complementing enough for your looks. Wearing neutrals shades keep your outfit in harmony with the military style you’re aiming for while sporting some neon and bright colors make it look quirky and a bit modern.
Feel free to dress up and dress down your looks. After all, fashion style is a mean of expressing your individuality with the clothes you’re wearing.
