The army jacket may seem like a difficult piece to pull off. However, with some easy pointers in mind, it can become your new go-to for instantly cool casual outfits.
Tip #1: We like to think of the army jacket as an outfit “elevator” – it elevates an otherwise simple outfit to one with dimension and character. So, you want keep the rest of your look somewhat understated. Less is more with statement pieces.

When putting an outfit together, try to incorporate a minimum of three pieces, not counting your shoes. We can usually easily think of two pieces, but it’s that third piece that really adds that extra dash of style to your look. Use the army jacket as your “third piece” for an instantly stylish outfit.
