Best Bet: Armed Forces


Reinventing the classics is what Gap does best, and the company’s brand-new Utility collection offers a range of nicely updated workwear originals. The green military anorak, made from soft, slightly worn cotton, is perfectly in tune with the army-inspired looks that stormed the spring runways. The jacket’s longer length, which hits at the upper thigh, is loose and comfortable, perfect for layering in chillier months. When closed, however, the jacket retains a slimmer, more feminine silhouette that can be further cinched at the waist and bottom for more definition. With a high funnel neck and roomy, oversize pockets, Gap’s new military jacket epitomizes this season’s relaxed, effortless style.
