Military: The Constant Threat

Military: The Constant Threat

The Military trend is one that makes an appearance every season, whether it’s for fall/winter or spring/summer. Luckily for 2012, this trending is debuting for fall and it does not disappoint! The difference between this year’s trend and the others is that the designers took their time with the details and gave it a sleek Chic appeal, especially for Coats and Jackets.

I must say that this year Burberry Prorsum takes the gold as the Best in Trend. The detailing and variety in their coat and bag selection makes my heart beat faster and faster every time I take a look at one of their pieces!

How to go Military!

1. You can always go the direct route of actually purchasing obvious Military items> Coats with a Military feel, Olive green or khaki color clothing & cargo style pants.

2. There’s always the option of creating the military feel with through your accessories.

         a. Grab a dark colored chunky belt , military style hat or leather gloves to add on to a basic outfit. If your look already has a lot going on then it won’t work.

         b. Get some gold like military style pins and add it your outfit. Along with that idea, you can also replace dull buttons with medium to large military style options.

         c. Color is also important. Remember to stick to your neutrals. It would be pretty hard to be believable with pink on.

         d. A great pair of lace up boots also goes a long way to help complete the look!

                                          *****Military on a Budget*****

A simple way of going Military on a budget is by adding in a Trench Coat  with a couple of accessories (suggested above) into your wardrobe. The great thing is about this trend is that you don’t need to go crazy purchasing over the top items to make your look come alive. Go to your nearest Army and Navy store, local  Salvation Army or Thrift Shop for some cool and original add ons. So have fun and start to gear up!
