A good military jacket will make you look like a rock star if you wear it the right way. Who doesn’t want to look like a rock star? Here are some quick tips I’ve learned over the years for pulling off a military jacket as a tall woman:
- Pair with a fitted bottom to balance out the bulkiness of the jacket. A tight skirt or dark skinny jeans will do the trick.
- Pair with something girly to balance out the masculine vibe. A fun color, a slinky silhouette or a feminine texture (like lace!) work well.
- Choose a jacket that finishes at the slimmest or most flattering part of the body. For me, I made sure that the jacket fell above the widest part of my hip/thigh area.

Also, just wanted to point out that I am not wearing anything J.Crew in this post. Aren’t you proud?!
