The popularity of the military-inspired trend doesn't seem to be fading anytime soon, and modern military jackets with feminine details are a spring wardrobe essential. I actually purchased this ruffled collar military-inspired jacket several years ago at Nordstrom, and it quickly became one of my go-to pieces. I hope this trend sticks around - I love the fact that a military-inspired jacket can be dressed up or down, and the neutral color goes with just about anything! For today's outfit, I kept a feminine vibe by pairing this jacket with a silk blouse, faux leather pencil skirt, military-inspired heels, and a crossbody bag (carried as a clutch) for a neutral work outfit with a bit of edge.
