Style Tip: If you’ve got your hands on a literal translation of a military jacket, like Delevingne’s, tone it down with sexy separates, like a lace blouse, fitted trousers, and patent leather shoes. On Delevingne: Balmain Military Jacket ($3995); Burberry shoes.
Style Tip: Allow us to introduce you to your next party look: a cropped military jacket, sheer blouse, and leather skirt. Voila! Shop The Runway: Saint Laurent Cropped Military Jacket ($1490).
