Hey my beautiful ladies! First let’s start with a little bit of history. The military trend was born during World War I, when civilians, even ladies, had to wear government-issue trench coats or army jackets as everyday outerwear. During the ‘60s, hippies were the first to dress up in the military style. Nobody knew at that moment that they will become trendsetters in the process, way before the fashion elite started adopting the look.
This season military green has been spotted on almost all the runways: Kanye West for Adidas, Sonia Rykiel, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Jason Wu, Yves Saint Laurent etc… One of the most amazing was Ralph Lauren, whose collection was practically completely based on military green.
Wearing a military outfit is not about dressing like a soldier, but about playing with some military influences. When it comes to adopting the military attitude, there are some items that shouldn’t be missing from your wardrobe, for example stylish military jacket, camouflage printed pieces, military green shirts, pants, shorts and jumpsuits. If you still are a little bit confused about how to rock the military look just scrooll down and take a look at the pictures that I chose for you. You will see how to wear military in an easy way – making the trend effortless and timeless!
For an easy way to build your military look start with accessories. Adding some military details, whether a camouflage-printed belt or similarly imprinted sneaker is so simple to do and yet keeps things chic and on-trend.
For those of you who are wondering which colors work best with olive, army green, khaki and tan—aside from white, lett me tell you, it’s easy. Go dark! Black and navy blue pairs nicely with all of these colours which means no loss of fashion demerit points here!
When you feel more comfortable with the military look, go for the color head-to-toe. A mix of materials such as silk, leather and soft cashmere will bring added texture and will also soften your look!
No need to go head to toe with this one. Choose only one military inspired piece for instance, camo T-shirt and combine it with some basics in shades of khaki, army green. Do not add to many military elements at once!
All in all, my beautiful ladies, the military style is probably one of the most interesting and noteworthy trends existing in the fashion world. If you want to be the most eye-catching and outstanding person in the crowd this season you must copy some of these military looks above.
