GetFreshTips: Cut Me Some Flak

Military styling is more popular now than ever and the flak jacket is hot for spring. Not just for the grunge set, flak jackets are showing up in the pages of high fashion magazines and on the Spring 2010 runways.
In the past if a woman wanted to wear a flak jacket she would be resigned to wearing the traditional one made for a man. And while this look is definitely inspired by menswear these latest versions are all woman.
The key to rocking this look is keeping all your other pieces feminine. It works so well, try it with skinny leather pants and a pretty nude camisole or a lace dress with leggings underneath. It's a piece that can used when the weather starts to get warm and is also a perfect jacket for those April showers. Lightweight and fashion forward, something that sometimes is hard to find in a rain jacket.
If you happen to own a vintage flak jacket or find one secondhand, it can easily be made more modern with just a few alterations. Belt it around the waist with a wide studded belt or try embellishing the top pockets with gold studs/chains.
However you choose to wear it this is a must own piece for spring. FRESH
