Michael Jackson’s passing has brought his music as well as his fashions to the front of our minds again. For some it never left. My
favorite song? Probably Billie Jean. My favorite look? The sparkly military jacket.

Although there have been many versions of the sparkly military jacket throughout the years this one is looking particular fabulous. As seen on Taylor Swift, the BB Dakota version has olive-bronze insignia-inspired embroidery, mandarin collar with slight front opening, and figure-flattering pleats. Made of 100% cotton.

I recommend rocking it with jeans, over a simple dress or some leggings. I would also enjoy seeing it with some dressy shorts or silk romper. Swift, who has always been a fan of military inspired jackets, paired it with an exuberant dress or skirt it seems from the photo. I find the look a little too messy. I say stick to subtle patterns or solid colors with few or minuscule details.
