It’s hard to find a more instantly cool outfit-maker than an army jacket. Aside from the ultra flattering hue that looks good on everyone — and pairs well with almost any color — this topper just seems to have endless styling possibilities. One of our favorite ways to rock it? Using the opposites attract rule. Yes, in fashion, mixing pieces that are totally different almost always yields super stylish results. See what we mean ahead, with three unexpected army jacket outfits you’ll want to cop ASAP.

1. Shine On: A military inspired jacket is inherently rugged, so dress it up with sequins, then balance out the look with ankle booties. The result? A day/night mix that looks great at any hour.

2.  Punk Prep: When leopard meets plaid, you get instant It-Brit style. When you add an army jacket? Pure fashion magic.

3. Girlish Glam:  Offset the jacket’s masculine vibe with a bright, feminine floral. Complete with gold heels, a polished handbag, and sparkly earrings and you’ve totally mastered the boy-meets-girl thing.
