We always look to celebs to find the latest and greatest fashion trends and Keira Knightly is no exception in this Military Inspired Look. While fitted is always more flattering, even when someone has a tiny frame like Keira, her slightly large jacket works to pull this look off. With a few modifications, this look can be a touch more figure flattering while maintaining the edgy look.
Levi’s Jacket, Long Sleeve Military Anorak – $69
A military-inspired jacket, like this Levi’s jacket from Macy’s, sets the tone for this look with the metallic buttons, flap pockets and collar. The jacket conforms to the body shape with the seaming and creates a slimming look when left slightly open.
DKNY Jeans Boot Cut Jeans, Soho Stretch Black Rinse Wash – $48
Also available at Macy’s are DKNY’s Soho jeans in a black rinse, my favorite jeans to dress up or down in. The bootcut style works for those of us who are gifted in the seat and hips by balancing us out from hip to floor and there is just enough stretch to make these comfortable to wear all day.
Satin-trimmed Layering Tank – $29.90
A simple shell with a satin trim like this one from The Limited takes what could be a plain T-shirt and adds an element that frames the face and dresses up the look. A size that fits close to the body works better than too loose or too tight.
Shimmery Swag Necklace – $29.90
Opt for a layered necklace, which is still trendy this season, in a dark metallic chain to add an edgy tone to the look. The Limited also carries this necklace – called Narrow Cobra Necklace – which will add shine around the face without too much glitter or color.
Simply Vera Vera Wang Sequined Knit Hat – $26
The last piece of this outfit is a hat. Always choose a hat that works with your face shape and consider how much hair maintenance you want to do once the hat comes off. Simply Vera Vera Wang’s Sequined Knit Hat in black could be an option and can be worn multiple ways.
