Atten—tion! Fall is here to stay, and this season’s military inspired trend is a striking way to revamp your wardrobe. Next time you're doing a closet overhaul, keep an eye open for military items, from oversized boyfriend jackets to camouflage print. Color tones including khaki and dark forest green are forecasted to be a major trend for this season. Whichever you choose, military jackets, skirts and pants prove that army-themed fashion can still be chic.
Completely in-the-now, camouflage print is an easy way to incorporate the military trend into your wardrobe little by little. Show off your rebellious side with gold-studded, high waisted camouflage shorts. Add a flirty, feminine top to balance out this boyish style. Or, get inspiration by Ekaterina, a blogger from Belarus, who styled her look with mixed textures, using a vintage camo printed jacket with denim sleeves. Perfect for a casual yet stand-out look, Nigerian blogger Sayedero killed it with a pair of camouflage joggers and lace up heels. Although she styled hers with a denim button up, between crop tops and flirty bralettes, the possibilities are endless. Add a military vest into the mix to your closet rotation. Team with black skinnies, boots and a crossbody bag for an easy look when you’re on the go.
If the thought of military fashion summons images of drab cargo shorts or ho-hum capris, think again. Oversized military style jackets are a must-have to enhance almost any wardrobe for this season. Casual and cool, layering a slightly longer camouflage jacket gives your look a sense of boyish charm. Let your personality shine and rep your city with embroidered details and patches. Blogger Gigi Lam shows us how it’s done with a military jacket and an LA patch on the back. Wear with fringed over the knee boots and skinny jeans for a fall-ready look.
All about attitude, this military fashion trend speaks volumes without saying a word. For an effortless day to night look, take a look at this on-point outfit from blogger, Hapa Time. An open back top keeps things looking feminine, while the all over camouflage skinnies exude presence. From snaps of street style bloggers and seen down runways around the globe, it’s clear that the military trend has sprouted enormously. This season, go for a confident, powerful approach with camouflage prints and key items in olive or khaki.
