This week’s post: Jackets, especially military jackets

The weather this time of year is just enough to keep you from throwing off your sweater and running out in flip flops – you still need a substantial jacket to keep you warm as you walk past the windy corner under the shadow of the SciLi. Military jackets in olive drab and weathered khaki match everything and provide a trendy bit of edge with their tough silhouette. They flatter every skin tone and look great on guys and girls alike. Here are a few picks that you can get on Thayer or at Providence Place (click for larger image):

1. Cropped utility anorak by Gap; 2. Genuine surplus military jacket, available on or at the Army/Navy surplus store!; 3. Cargo linen jacket by Forever21; 4. Men’s twill military jacket by Old Navy; 5. Military 4-pocket parka by Uniqlo; 6. Cropped surplus jacket, available at Urban Outfitters
