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