Army Jacket

Untitled

A bit girly but it’s the mens bit that appeals.

Mens camo jacket: Army surplus shop.  (Similar here or a plain parka like this or this).   Dress: Elizabeth & James. (This simple one isn’t bad).  Clutch: ASOS  on sale (get yellow here).  Shoes: Thrift (Found this or this).  Watch: Michael Kors (Similar).   Shades: Thrift. (Check here or try these)

This is a mens camo jacket from an army surplus shop worn over an old dress and thrifted shoes.   Been wearing mens jackets a lot lately.  Women’s don’t have the same appeal right now.

The sunglasses were picked up from a vintage shop which – unintentionally  – matched the neon clutch.  Both about the fastest way to put some spring (and colour) in the wardrobe!

ps. the clutch is on sale.

Happy Easter!

    I didn’t like army jackets at first (the camouflage pattern didn’t appeal to me at all) but in the right combination – like yours- it really looks amazing!

    • Karen says:

      Kate – definitely keep everything else more neutral. Easiest way to wear neon in a mod way : )
