Atten-hut!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ve had to take notice that the military trend has been rising through the ranks and has exploded on to the fashion radar.  Don’t know what the military trend is?  Well it’s time for some basic training.  Military-inspired fashion takes elements from a military uniform-which can be anything from the colors-such as tan, khaki, camel, navy, and olive green to the details such as epaulets, cargo pockets, double-breasted button closures, and twill.

As we begin to transition into fall, the look is still going strong.  The key to rock this look without looking like you’ve actually infiltrated the military is balance.  The goal is to contrast the masculinity that these pieces tend to portray.  Try pairing your skinny cargos with a sequin tank and some platform heels for a sassy evening look, or pairing your cargo utility jacket with a floral scarf or top for a fun day look.
