Salute military styling. Utility and camo are the new season uniform you need, so you can go into combat looking fashion forward. However, we do not have to take it back to Destiny’s Child’s Survivor video!
Here are some tips to help you pull off this badass trend.
1. Head-to-toe khaki is optional
This trend tends to veer towards khaki – I love it – but also, try to mix it up with clean nudes or navy, black and grey.
2. Mix up textures and fabrics
It’s all about teamwork! Mix up silks with heavy cottons and leather with soft wools or chunky knitwear. Add biker boots to a silk slip dress or wear your favorite killer heels with that tomboy camo pants.
3. Investigate your local army shop for the real deal
With a trend this big, all of our favorite retailers such as Zara, Topshop and H&M are full of military-inspired items. But let’s be honest; there’s nothing like the real deal.
An army shop is a great option to find the real authentic bomberjackets and parkas in navy, green or black. I’m pretty sure you’ll find nice sweaters, jumpers and hats at vintage markets as well. Oh, and let’s not forget about thrift shops!
