4 THINGS TO KNOW about wearing the Military Trend...
+ Select a Statement Piece: When styling a Military-inspired outfit, pick one piece that will be your central focus. For example, a coat, jacket, dress, skirt, vest, etc. See the style ideas above!
+ Keep it simple: To avoid looking awkward and like a fashion victim (lol), try to isolate your ensemble to one Military-inspired statement piece and one Military-inspired complementing piece (ex. - shoes, scarf, hat, top, watch, etc.). See the style ideas above!
+ Make it personal: If you choose to sport this trend, have fun with it! Gain inspiration from our tips and the style ideas above, but don't ever be a cookie-cutter fashionista! Always choose to infuse your own personal style and preferences into this trend.
+ Go green: Peruse through your current wardrobe, you might already have some pieces that fit into the trend. A lot of us have "Cargo" trend pieces from previous seasons, try mixing these into your military-inspired ensembles.
Staple military trend colors are: Army Green, Olive Green, Khaki (all of its various shades), Black, Red, Navy, and White. But again, don't be cookie-cutter, these are just a starting out point to get your creative juices flowing.
Other items that you might already have that can be transformed into military-inspired ensembles are: belted button-down blouses & dresses, chino pants, vests, boots, broom skirts / maxi skirts/ long skirts, pencil skirts, skinny jeans, etc.
