One day it's hot, the next day it's cold: welcome to spring, y'all! With this ever-changing weather, the transitional coat is a must-have for any wardrobe. Right now we're really into army jackets, but not just the plain green parkas you're used to seeing—we're all about the camo! The printed version of the seasonal staple has an updated feeling of the old go-to, and you can throw it over literally anything. Don't believe us? Check out these three stylish ladies and their very different takes on the army jacket trend. Bonus points if you mix up those prints!

If the glow of your computer screen is beginning to burn your retinas for your insatiable appetite for beautifully dressed fashion bloggers, boooooyyy do we have the solution for you. It's called a BOOK. You can, like, actually hold it in your hands. You know, take it to the beach and actually be able to read it under the bright sunlight, unlike your touch screen cell phone. Super amazeballs/famous blogger Jane Aldridge from Sea of Shoes wrote the foreword for the Style Yourself guide, which features outfits from all your fash faves (yes, even Tavi, Karla, and Susie) and offers sound advice on how to cop their looks. Our favorite part though? The "remixes"! Three bloggers are shown sporting a trend in three different ways (JUST LIKE WE DO EVERY WEEK!!), so of course we HAD to pick our favorite looks and share them with you! Buy the entire Style Yourself book for the full experience.
First up: monochromatic. Dressing in one color makes you long and lean, and Style Yourself says to "add lots of texture for visual variety." Zanita Whittington of Zanita wears head-to-toe yellow (daring) with a lemon motorcycle jacket, dandelion pleated skirt, and tangerine stacked sandals. Michelle Koesnadi of Glisters and Blisters took jeans and a tank top to new heights by coordinating her entire outfit (even her bag!) in shades of blue. Justyna Baraniecki of Chichichic! went for smooth dark chocolate brown from top to bottom, which we LOVE. The fur accent is purrrrfect.
