I’ll admit I’m a huge fan of the field/military jacket. It goes with practically everything, and it’s light enough to wear in Hawaii where I’m currently living. So when I saw this Rose-inspired jacket by Her Universe at Hot Topic, I squealed with delight!
First, I love that it’s a brownish color. I wear a LOT of olive green, and all of my field jackets are olive as well. So this adds a bit of variety to my wardrobe. I also love the length! It’s longer than most jackets, so it gives you that extra coverage if you want that. You could also wear it zipped up like a shirt, and the cute drawstring cinches right across your waist giving you a nice feminine look in an otherwise masculine design. I absolutely love the functional pockets as well! They are large enough for your phone, and the snaps are easy to undo so you can get to it quickly. (One of my pet peeves is pockets that are not large enough to be practical!)
For the casual observer, this jacket is just that. BUT this is where the fun begins (I hope you read that in your Episode 3 Anakin Skywalker voice!)- the rebel logo is hidden on the zipper which is a great touch! And on the right side of the jacket is some Aurebesh writing. And of course I translated it! It reads: GLD, Landing Officer. According to The Cancrizans, GLD stands for Ground Logistics Division.
I think we can safely say that this jacket has definitely become a favorite in my wardrobe. In the photos, I’m wearing it at work (I’m a teacher), so I paired it with a maroon skirt and moccasins. However it would look super cute with jeans or leggings too! I’m also wanting to try to pair it with some florals or stripes!
How would you style this jacket? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
