Oh, I’m sorry, what? OOOOH, right! You can’t see me, I’m wearing camouflage.
This Autumn the military vibe is reporting for a duty. The military look came in style during WW1 due to tailoring companies that were only allowed to make orders of military uniforms. In the 60’s the hippies were the first ones to start wearing military style clothing in a everyday environment and in the 80’s the military style grew into the women’s wardrobe.
A minimalistic approach to a military look is a great way to tip your toe into this amazing trend. Go for the army palette (tones of khaki, green, grey, brown and neutrals) without all the pattern and spice up things with studded hardware. Mixing the textures and fabrics is a great way to get the perfect army look. Materials such as heavy cottons and waterproofs are perfect paired with silk, chiffon and light wool. The primary reason of opting for army style clothing pieces is the comfort. Thus combining these factors with the overall feminine silhouettes, we have what is called the army girl style. Another advantage of these looks is their universality for the age, meaning it’s suitable for any age.
It’s high time to learn how to wear the military fashion trend in a creative and outstanding way, creating looks that make the heads turn! Match the military style with casual and create some unique and creative options for everyday wear. Matching the military pieces with the top elegant feminine dresses is a great way of creating the catchy counterbalance of the outfits. But remember not to go overboard with head-to-toe military pieces (unless you are a soldier) or you will look like a costume party visitor.
