Don’t just think of camo when it comes to military fashion; the trend got a huge makeover this year and we love what we’re seeing for fall. Khaki reigns supreme with soft metals, patchwork and camo-inspired details for feminine style that will make any fashionista feel chic and strong. Here are some of our favorite military-inspired pieces we can’t wait to wear this season.
The Utility Jacket
An instant way to wear the military trend this fall is with a utility jacket styled to perfection. This embroidered jacket from Colleen Lopez and sequined camo-detail jacket from DG2 by Diane Gilman both provide feminine touches to the traditionally masculine trend. Style them with a white t-shirt and frayed denim for effortless street style. For another option, style this drape jacket from Vince Camuto over a black pencil dress and booties for a look that’s as chic as it is tough.
While camo and military fashion will always go hand-in-hand, the evolution of this popular trend is giving us style beyond the iconic print. Here’s a head-to-toe military-inspired look to try this season. Start with these jeans from G by Giuliana; the boot-cut silhouette and patchwork give trend-worthy touches to begin your look. Next, throw on this sweater capelet from Wendy Williams or mock cut-out top from Slinky for a chic touch. Complete the look with these buttoned velvet booties from Donald J. Pliner to bring the entire look together.
Complete any military-inspired look with accessories in soft metals of silver, brass and gold. The geometric design in these Stately Steel earrings and ring will give any look a subtle military-inspired touch. Style this black and gold choker with an olive dress or top for a bold and feminine take on the trend. The brushed gold in this bracelet and ring set from Danielle Nicole will instantly make any outfit come to attention. Style them with your utility jacket for an ultimate take on the trend.
