GET THE LOOK: MILITARY + WHITE

Want to keep wearing your favorite little white dresses from summer? This is how it’s done. A simple white dress – whether a shirt dress or something with a little more flare –  can easily be transformed into a fall staple with the help of of a military jacket. Coats get a lot of wear and tear but one that I continue to pull out year after year is my military jacket from J.Crew. I’ve had it for at least five years and it remains one of my favorite things in my closet. What I really love about it is that it’s not precious. I don’t have to be super careful with it. It can withstand the rain and any sort of spills easily come out in one wash. A military jacket is just such a good neutral, making it a go-to for all kinds of outfits. It’s obviously an easy pairing with jeans and a chunky sweater, but I also love the contrast it gives to a dressier look. (I wore mine over these pants and heels just this week.) And you can bet I’ll be wearing it over my white Maje dress. Just one more excuse to hang on to summer a little bit longer…
