Keep Warm Under Military Coats This Winter

If you’re like me, you just can’t say no to extra hardware on a coat!  Military coats are both practical and visually appealing, and have lasting power throughout the seasons (the look is still going strong after the trend erupted back to popularity in 2006).  You can be as forward with your look as you wish; there are many choices of color, material and style to look through and at a varied price range. 

One word of suggestion would be to avoid the traditional green color of the coat.  Greens do not go well with most other colors, and will make you look as if you’ve been shopping at a surplus store.  Other shades (such as navy, black and even brights) will give your style a definition and pep.

Don’t get this style of outerwear confused with band jackets, though.  Band jackets typically have a frontal cross body design style to them, as well as more ornate designs sewn around the sleeve area and down the breast of the jacket.

Seeing as I am quite the coat fanatic, this post easily got me looking at all these different types of coats all over the almighty web. I came across this nifty little thing on the Vogue site. Lookie here.
Now that’s over the top military that few could pull off!
