The ‘military’ coat is one of the most popular jacket styles, and one of my favorite styles, this winter. This classy coat has great detailed accessories making it easy to pimp-it-up to a real dandy piece of clothing every gentleman needs this season. There are many different brands and my style choice here is from Zara (Military Style Coat). Zara goes full on ‘military’ with it’s winter collection.
This particular style coat comes with a classic lapel collar and is double breasted with gold tone buttons. The collar is very eye catching with it’s red collar, similar to a Christian Louboutin signature shoe, and it gives the coat that little extra zing where people look at it twice!
Zara has many different variations of this coat including one with fur this season!
How To Style
When it comes to putting together a nice combo with this particular style coat, I try to keep it classy and casual, not too dressed up and not too laid back. The coat already creates an instant vibe, so I let it do it’s own thing. You can team it up with with simple options to break up the look. My choice of adding black patent leather shoes isn’t totally low key so I broke it up by not wearing socks with the more tuxedo style shoe. I then added the black skinny leg Levis jeans for a more classic and monochromatic look. With this coat you can go for a fun kicks look or a 100% classy look as well.
For a more business style combine a smart suit with chic loafers to fulfill the total look, or for that easy kind of day try a simple kick using a T-shirt and some skinny black jeans… Feel free to play around a little with this admiral style military jacket to find your own look.
