Trend – Military Chic

For the last few seasons there has been a steady influence of military inspired looks however it is now really taking off with store windows full of camo!

I’m certainly happy with this trend as khaki is one of my favourite colours and masculine styling is right down my alley!  I love the oversized jackets, leather detailing and camo pieces we are seeing and can’t wait for the weather to cool a little so that I can comfortably start rocking this look!  Here are my picks of staples for this trend:

Over-sized military shirt (summer)
A really versatile peice that can be thrown on as a cover-up and worn open, tucked into your pants, tied as a crop etc.  Great for those mild summer evenings!

Van Damme long sleeved shirt in camo by Cotton On, rrp $39.95
Singlet by Wheels and Dollbaby
Short by Supre
Boots by Verali

Parka (Winter)
Super warm, heavy weight yet casual and comfortable.  Easily thrown over any outfit to sheild you from the elements!  This is definatley on my winter shopping list.

ASOS Fur Hooded Detachable Lined Parka


Leather pants/tights
Leather pants compliment a khaki outfit perfectly not to mention make your butt look amazing.  There is no need to spend your whole pay check on a pair that are made out of the skin of baby sheep, there are plenty of “vegan” options instead of genuine leather that or no only cheaper but also more ethical.

Utility boots
Comfortable and sturdy, a no fuss pair of army style boots (heeled or flat) will finish off your military uniform!
