This is definitely my best military find ever! The vintage 1940s cropped wool jacket is in mint condition, and has the most beautiful and feminine details you can imagine on a military piece. The Munich Military Jacket features decorative triangular buttons in alternating shades of purple and pink, and is fully lined. The cropped nature of this jacket makes for a modern feel, while the broad shoulders and narrow sleeves give it a streamlined effect.

My first look is versatile, and can be worn either day (depending on where you work) or night. I got a little creative with this one, and re-purposed a gymnastics leotard for a Victorian-esque styled bodysuit. A pair of black velvet leggings and abstracted pony haired booties compliment The Munich Military Jacket perfectly! Here are some suggestions for great pieces to complete your look: the Boom Short Leggings by Hunt No More, the Vinyl Legging by Tripp NYC, or the Snakebite Legging by style stalker. For tops check out the Azaria Pattern Sequin Tank by Jack BB Dakota or the Weiland Sequined Corset by Funktional.

When you want nothing more then to stand out, pair it up with gold shimmer and funky tights! Try the Sequined Aline Dress from *LA Boutique with the Opaque Dot Tight by Free People.

This last look is my punk meets military look. I’ve been rocking these longer style acid wash denim shorts, and can bet you anything we’ll see these on the streets in the near future…well, maybe once we’ve weathered the winter months!  So here’s what you need for this look: dirty white Chelsea boots, wayfarers, acid wash shorts, tights, and a little lace tank. Check out these items for a similar look: the Hunt Denim Shorts from *Vintage Boutique, the Angelica Top by Lucca Couture, the Cat Eye Sunglasses by Alexander Wang, and the Lux Shoe from *Sole Boutique.
