Move Over Bomber Jackets – The Military Is Coming

Athleisure who? March straight into the festive season with our edit of the best military jackets you can shop right away.
|

The bomber jacket has had a good run for most of the year. As the weather begins to chill for real and the party duds start to come out, it is officially time to move on from your treasured nylon to more polished, fancier pastures. If it has epaulets, rows of gold buttons and carefully placed gold trims, you’re on the right track. You’re marching on the right track. Ho-ho!

While the regalia-inspired aesthetic has long been a signature of Burberry, designers outside the Big Smoke are joining the band for fall. At Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, the jacket undergoes the maximalist treatment with jacquard, ribbons and whimsical embroidery. Etro sees the trend through its bohemian lens while Roberto Cavalli adds a luxe seventies touch with velvet and fur. Sacai completely reimagines the military jacket in sheer organza.

We’re all for letting our inner maximalist’s freak flag fly when it comes to the last leg of the year, but it you’re looking for something on the minimal front, Givenchy and Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini offer stripped-down alternatives, sans embellishments.

The military jacket fever isn’t just about gold, too. Marni, Vetements, Tibi, Prada and Maison Margiela see the jacket through a roguish, weathered and more androgynous eye. Silhouettes are deliberately bulky and oversized and colours take a back seat. The show factor is less, but the cool, devil-may-care factor is way up.

Whose beat are you marching to this fall? Tell us, and then take your pick from our edit of the best military jackets that you can shop right now.
