Fall Essentials: Four Ways to Style the Massini Military Jacket

As fall transitions us to cooler months, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear this season’s hottest trends. From style tips to makeup trends to home décor, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas gear up for fall weather.

Military jackets, also referred to as utility jackets or field jackets, are a popular jacket style for fall and thanks to the neutral colors and light fabric, they’ll be a key piece to wear all season long. This week, we’re welcoming Kacie and Jaime from Regally Soled to share outfit ideas to pair with our new favorite fall jacket.

It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over but as fashion bloggers, we’ve already been investing in new fall styles for weeks in anticipation of the seasonal transition. One piece we absolutely can’t live without is a utility jacket. Light enough to wear during the day and just thick enough to keep away the evening chill, we literally live in this staple piece in the fall and fell in love with this versatile jacket from Meijer by Massini. Looking for some inspiration? Take a look at how we styled the must-have jacket of the season with some of our other new favorite pieces from Meijer.

Look 1: Laced Up Details

The lace up trend crept in this past spring, but totally took over summer style in a big way. From tops, dresses and even footwear, this free spirited style totally plays off the 70’s vibe with a new added twist. This undeniably chic look can be styled to fit a variety of settings from casual to workday. With so many ways to wear this trend, it’s easily incorporated into your fall looks. As the weather starts to cool down, you can rock the lace up trend this fall by simply adding a military-inspired jacket over your favorite lace up top or dress. Skip statement necklaces since the neckline of your top is so detailed and instead opt for fun earrings and booties to play up the vintage vibe.

Look 2: Fall Florals

Think florals are just for spring? Think again! Bold floral prints are perfect for fall, especially in darker shades and muted tones, much like this fit and flare dress. The print adds dimension and interest underneath the jacket and nicely pairs with sneakers (or booties!) for a fun, flirty look that is perfect for early autumn when the days are hot and the evenings are chilly. When wearing such a bold print, it’s also a good idea to keep the accessories to a minimum so opt for small studs instead of statement earrings and a dainty necklace.

Look 3: Layered Tassels

Remember that whole 70’s vibe? Well tassels and flare jeans are making a comeback and fall is the perfect time to layer up and add some ‘flare’ to your style. Tassels continue to be a popular accessory addition and tasseled necklaces pair perfectly with modest tops and jackets. Throw on some tassel bracelets to compliment the stacked necklaces and this fitted, tucked-in top and olive utility jacket really allow the tasseled accessories to pop.

Look 4: Gingham Glam

Plaid and gingham are two other great prints that you’ll likely see a lot of this fall. This black and white oversized gingham top can easily be dressed up for work or dressed down with ripped black denim and booties like I’ve worn it here. The buckles on these booties add edge to the look while the fun layered necklace gives sparkle and shine to really glam up this outfit. Of course, the real show stopper here are these feathered dream catcher earrings, which add an earthy, natural touch that ties the whole look together.

When styling your utility jacket this fall, just remember that it’s okay to take risks and try a new style that you might not have otherwise considered. Whether you opt for an edgy lace-up detail, bold prints or fun tassels, fashion is all about fun! Now bring on the jackets, booties, and pumpkin spice everything – fall, we’re ready for you!
