The military fashion has had a presence on the runways for some time, and it is seemingly stronger now than ever. The military trend for fall or winter uses colors which vary from khaki and black to reds and royal blues. In addition it showcases characteristics of the aviator chic and the period of the Russian Tsars.
Key Elements of the Trend
To truly be a part of the military fashion you definitely need to have a military jacket or great coat which is a key piece for the fall/winter trend. In addition, army green or navy is the color to choose, however there seems to be a lot of khaki and this may also be one of the top colors for the trend this time around. The fabric of choice is definitely shearling, being used both as the embellishement for military fashion boots and the collar of the coats.
The military jackets are a very important aspect of the military trend. They are seen as very classic and are designed with double-breasted brass buttons, gold braiding and shoulder epaulettes. You can choose to have a nice stand up collar pea coat, or a lengthy officer’s great coat. The jackets/coats are perfect for wearing with any outfit whether slacks, leggings, jeans, skirts or jeggings, and you can be sure that they will look absolutely great. For this time around you may want to go for coats that have big buckles, large lapels and extra large military buttons.
Sprucing Up Your Military Look
The military style tends to have a masculine look and so it is advisable that you add some feminine touch to your military piece by adding accessories or pieces of clothing that are rather feminine. For instance you could wear your military jacket with a nice lacy dress, skinny pants, ballerina skirt, shiny leggings or boots that are thigh high. Adding accessories like a nice clutch or statement jewelry will also help to make the outfit look appropriate and dazzling.
Another important feature for your military trend for fall/winter look is a nice pair of boots that are truly representative of military chic. You can therefore choose to wear traditional tall boots or go for the more modern ones, like booties with buckles or corset lacing with some amount of heel. Once you have it all together, step with confidence knowing that your military style is giving you that strong feminine appearance.
