20 Style Tips On How To Wear Military or Utility Jackets

According to the runways, military greens are back on trend for spring and summer 2015 – but honestly, I feel like they never really go out of style. A military jacket, army jacket, utility jacket, whatever you want to call it – it always looks stylish to me. This kind of light jacket is also perfect for spring because it keeps you from getting cold but won’t make you too warm, which is exactly what you need for confusing spring weather.

The other cool thing about military jackets is that you can think of them more as a layering option rather than just a jacket. The right jacket for you will look so cute that you won’t even want to take it off when you get inside. How should you wear it? Here are 20 style tips on how to wear military (utility) jackets.
