Stand to Attention in Military Chic

If there was ever an excuse to shop vintage, this is it - for most anything!  It seems the military influence has been in fashion since the beginning of time. I've had my St. John military jacket for 25 years and it's still timeless and perfect.  So, no matter what your style may be, here a few looks from tough girl casual to on point classic vogue......


pair with jeans, leggings or pants for whatever your day may hold.  These pieces are timeless in your mix. 

Giddy Up!

Stirrup pants are perfect for keeping your leggings tucked into your booties.  Make sure they're a strong enough knit and fit tightly through the leg and ankle.  If not, they may pull too much giving no shape to your legs - or bag in the knees giving you "knees" all day....sitting or standing! You DON'T want them to look like the old stretch pants from the 60's!!

FYI, I sewed a wide piece of elastic into the hem of my suede pair for a sleek look into my suede booties. Otherwise, they kept riding up and the look was off. You never want to look like you almost got it right - especially in Paris!

Note:  If you wear stirrup pants to work out, they will most likely pull down.

Wear with boots instead.
