The Best Army Jackets Straight From Our Fashion Director
Field jackets are my standby when the weather is in that transitional phase between Indian summer and early autumn chill. And I'm convinced that there's one for every personality, no matter how ladylike you claim to be. If you’re not sure how to wear this third piece, just ask yourself: "What would Miranda Kerr do”— it's a part of her style bible as well. Keep reading for my top 10 picks.
Dads Army Jacket ($139) in Khaki
This army jacket offers a surprise element with its bright flannel lining, so roll up the sleeves to show off the of-the-moment plaid detailing.
Women’s Amelia Jacket ($345) in Discovery Green
I'm instantly sold on anything that marries form with function, and since this one is water resistant, it's a done deal.
The Lone Soldier Military Jacket ($328) in Khaki-Green
Can't decide on black or green? This dip-dye style is the perfect way to split the difference.
M-65 Field Coat ($140) in Black
I love the idea of an authentic M-65 coat in black, which could be worn as a chic evening jacket.
Droptail Military Parka ($475) in Olive
Steven Alan’s parka toes the line of anorak territory, so I suggest wearing it over a motorcycle jacket for that model-off-duty-at-the-Paris-shows effect.
70S Army Jacket ($415) in Military Khaki
A shrunken camo style will look great as a light layering piece over a t-shirt.
Navy Field Jacket ($260)
With leather sleeves and a sharply tailored fit, this fitted iteration is what I would wear with a pencil skirt and boyish sweater.
Twill Fleece-Lined Parka ($148) in Navy
Sherpa lining adds extra warmth, plus, the navy blue will add a shot of color to my gray or black ensembles.
Merino Marten Blend Canvas Trompe L’oeil Anorak ($795) in Khaki Green
The knit detail on the back of this oversized, heavyweight version gives it a clever twist.
