Utilitarian Coat Dressed Up and Dressed Down

10:58:00 PM

Army Olive Green Coat Day to Night Look



The Army Green Utilitarian Jacket has been a wardrobe staple for the last few years. I still remember when I started seeing it in Stores down here years ago and wishing I had the guts to wear it. Now, it's so common place, I 'm pretty sure everyone and their mom owns some version of it.

But, now, what I keep noticing everywhere... From Kim Kardashian to my Fav Beauty Bloggers on Snapchat... is that the jacket is working it's way into dressier looks. By popping it over a cute dress  before you head out for the evening you give yourself a tough, cool girl look that you won't get from your more basic coats.

"Yes, I slayed tonight, but I just grabbed this coat on the way out, because it's a little chilly and I'm so effortlessly cool that I don't need to spend hours and hundreds of dollars on my outerwear".  

That's your inner monologue in this look. 
Do you have an inner monologue? 
You should. 

Ok, Anyway.... 

This coat is only $20 and you can grab it here. Other outfit deets are linked below!

    1. Haha, it is the same here in Louisiana. I spend so much time obsessing over sweaters and coats that I get to wear only a couple of times. Luckily this one is like the perfect weight for me. Light but not so light that it's pointless.
