Blogger and per­sonal stylist Yael Steren marches to the beat of the mil­i­tary coat.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamourama -

A sheer lace blouse with a high, ruf­fled col­lar picks up on the Vic­to­rian trend. Wear a nude or white bra.

The sta­ple you want now: black, su­per-skinny high­rise jeans to elon­gate legs.

Now for the main at­trac­tion: a mil­i­tary coat with a sleek cut and sharp de­tails like gold but­tons and con­trast cuffs and col­lar. Yael has gone for white, but re­ally, un­less you own a dry clean­ing busi­ness, navy, black and red are great.

The se­cret be­hind her ac­ces­sories? They’re all chic clas­sics with an im­mac­u­late finish. From the quilted hand­bag and kit­ten-heel loafers to the Avi­a­tor sun­nies (a mil­i­tary ref­er­ence on their own), these are the buys that will al­ways work. The fi­nal touch: a red lip and side-parted waves.

DOS and DON’TS of mil­i­tary coats DO try a parka for a more re­laxed take on the trend. DO try the blazer ver­sion in stand­out scar­let. DON’T take the trend too lit­er­ally.
