Military Fashion Trend Wear

I am usually not big on fashion trends that change every season, but I have to admit, the wave of military inspired fashion, is pretty persuasive. The trend has been on the runway for some time now in different avatars. From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Burberry Prorsum, the earthy palette of olive greens and burnished neutrals, along with lots of smart utility features and clean cuts is a perfect complement to all our autumn classics. The key to keeping military looks feminine is to choose fitted pieces: it gives it more of a boy-meets-girl look than a sloppy army surplus look. Although camo is around, it’s really the khakis and olives that look freshest.

Shirts

There are various ways of incorporating the trend in your wardrobe. The basic among these is a military shirt.

A military trend shirt is a very versatile piece of clothing. You can tuck it in or leave it open. You can use it as an outer layer or wear it under a jacket. A military trend shirt can be used as formal wear or can be dressed down to make it look casual. This is the basic military inspired piece of clothing to be introduced in your wardrobe.

Pants

The next basic military trend item is a pair of trousers. It works for everyone as it suits all types of body frames. The most common type these days is of course skinny pants. These can be formal office wear types or distressed casual wear types. Camo printed cargos and capris were in for a long time now but the new thing in pants is olives and navy blue and khakis utility pants.

Jackets

Another way of introducing the military trend in your wardrobe and rocking it is as military jackets. These are fall must haves! These can be of various types with different lengths, fabrics, cuts, embellishments and colours.

Jumpsuits and Rompers

Jumpsuits, originally used by parachuters and skydivers are a great way of casually wearing utilitarian garments. Military inspired jumpsuits and rompers have become a rage world over. These can be worn with heels and a skinny belt.

Skirts

The most feminine way of wearing the military trend is by wearing skirts. These can of solid military colours like. Or these can be camo printed. Military skirts ending just above the knee are more classy and smart than mini or long military skirts. You can team them up with white or beige formal shirt or plain black tshirt.

Boots

This winters suede and leather boots are passé. Military boots are the new thing. They are smart and bulky yet feminine. These boots are meant to withstand bad weather and terrain so a good pair will last you forever. The basic laced design helps the boot fit snugly to your feet and the heavy sole gives a good grip.

However, not everyone can carry them off well and they don’t go with everything. The best way to wear them is with skinny jeans. They usually don’t go with all kinds of skirts and dresses.

The trick to rock this trend is to choose wear that is military ‘inspired’ so that you don’t look like military personnel. Also, not everything in your attire should military wear. That will just be OTT. Choose your military accents wisely, mixing and matching between a tailored cargo skinny pants, broken-in combat boots, and other uncommon utilitarian extras.
