How fierce was Cheryl Cole‘s ensemble for her big live solo debut performance on The X Factor!? Fingerless gloves, plunging sheer top, racy side split harem pants – wowsers! But what really had us sitting upright in our chair was Chezza’s military jacket – and our immediate need to have one too.
Military style really kicked off when Balmain sent those bold shoulder, military-embellished jackets down the catwalk for Spring/Summer 2009, and everyone (including celebs), scrambled to get their hands on something similar. The trend is showing no signs of abating, and as we head into autumn/winter, a jacket like this will be the perfect thing to throw on over jeans or leggings to really smarten things up. Love it.
