 BB-Dakota-Battalion-Jacket

The Military Chic Fashion Trend is back and is declared by the fashionable Jean Voute Pratt of Style Observer as one of Fall 2009 must-haves. Maybe Beyonce’s $11,000 Balmain Military Jacket or the King of Pop Michael Jackson has something to do with this. You can now join the trend and buy this new Battalion Jacket designed by Indie designer BB Dakota . This 100% cotton jacket features an Olive-bronze insignia-inspired embroidery, Mandarin collar with slight front opening, cloth-covered hook-and-eye closures, and figure-flattering pleats. It can be described as a military style meets Sgt. Pepper then meets Michael Jackson. It’s like a marching band uniform but more tailored fit and stylish. This jacket comes in black & ivory and now available at ModCloth for $101.99.
