Military – Autumn/Winter 2016-17

Posted on: October 9, 2016 by Yummo Mummo

I have been watching what was on the runways in New York Fashion week, and then what has been coming into stores since then, and I am happy to confirm that military jackets, of all types, are hitting stores and helping you get the most out of your wardrobe when it comes to layering and versatility!

You will see from my images that when it comes to military jackets, there are quite a few options such as camo, olive green, burgundy and black. as well as fun embellishments to add a little bling. So, choose what takes your fancy and snap me a picture. Follow me on @yummomummo on Instagram.

Let the inspiration begin.



Burgundy is a HOT color for Fall/Winter 16-17 (FW16/17). I have had a tonne of fun coming up with inspirations wearing Burgundy with grey’s, blush pink, chambray as well as mixing with animal prints and stripes. A jacket like this could be pulled into SO many outfits, you’d be happily surprised. Burgundy Military Jacket. Current. $150. White House Black Market


You can never go wrong when it comes to a staple black jacket, but step it up once more with these military-inspired details. Love these brass buttons. Military Cutaway Jacket.  Current. $98.


Olive green and a rusty red. Great earthy fall-inspired colors. Outfit set from my previous blog post in Spring ’16 titled Military Vest Inspiration


I love playing on Polyvore and creating outfit sets, especially this one where the military jacket is the centerpiece. Fay Military Coat from The Luxer at $1,220! But a girl can dream, right? Check out my Polyvore account @yummomummo for outfit deets. Lastly, don’t forget to have some fun pattern mixing with cheetah and stripes. Black and white stripes are the neutral of the pattern mixing world and go with EVERYTHING.



I actually cut the sleeves of this camo jacket from last Fall. It is now a vest (and I wore it today with jeans and a white tee). Lots of pattern mixing going on here with stripes and cheetah print, and some pops of red to boot. Similar HERE
