One classic piece that seems to be emerging as one of this year's favorites is the military jacket. It's an oldie but goodie because this boyish piece can instantly add a relaxed, urban feel to any outfit. Also, this hot print jacket is the perfect addition to any closet because of its versatility despite the busy pattern.

This current trend has got to be one of our favorites because of the infinite number of cool outfits you can come up with using a camo jacket. Throw your oversized jacket over a graphic tee and jeans to give your look a boost. Change things up a little by wearing a military print sweater over a lace dress and booties for a street style appropriate look. Although it may seem a little challenging incorporating military-printed jackets or sweaters into your wardrobe, just remember that it works just like your denim or leather jacket. Don't be scared to pair it over other prints or bright colors because this will add a chic touch to your look. Be on the lookout for jackets with a twist like faux leather sleeves or a short cropped version because they will surely inspire you to come up with more one-of-a-kind looks! Want more tips on how to sport this trend? Take a look at the slideshow below and see how some fashion bloggers wear their favorite jackets.
