AT-TEN-TION! The only coat you’ll need to integrate into your wardrobe this fall is the military coat. It’s been seen on runways from Givenchy to Burberry and is now trickling down for those who are on a tighter budget. As proven by Polyvore, the coat is a hot commodity among the site’s community with the search rates seeing a 21% increase since this time in 2015. The great thing about the military coat is that the structured shoulders, the long wool cuts, and the gold embellishments make this an effortlessly strong power piece. Slip on one of these coats, and you’ll instantly feel like you’re the commander in chief (of your own life, of course).
If you feel the design is a little strong for you, balance it out with softer pieces, like a silk blouse paired with a skirt and thigh-high boots. Otherwise, you can never go wrong with a pair of jeans and a sweater! The only thing you’ll be marching to in this power coat is the beat of your own drum.
