Uniforms, patches and camo print all have been a big trend for men and women this year. With the military inspired clothing popping up in almost every store, it can be said that this trend was a success. Jackets, pants, shorts, shirts—these have become a staple piece for those Fashionistas/os who are looking to bring some edge and grunge into their closets. Depending on how you pair one of these pieces you can create either a classic or a grunge look.
This Fashionisto created a cool clean look that incorporated the military inspired trend. By beginning with one piece that captures the trend, he was able to create an outfit that does not overly exaggerate or scream out military. His shirt was perfectly detailed with patches and printed with a uniform inspired print. By cuffing the sleeves, one can make their shirt appear more laid back which makes it perfect for summer. Khaki shorts come in a variety of shades but finding the right shade can be hard to match with your tops. By contrasting the top from your bottoms you are able to bring dimension to the outfit. If you match the colors exactly it can be a little overwhelming and look like one piece instead of separates. White sneakers also add a laid back look as well as breaking up the outfit by adding a color besides khaki. Along with the white sneakers, this Fashionisto’s red sunglasses add a pop of color to his outfit. By accessorizing with dog tags, a watch and a bracelet he was able to bring his outfit to the next level.
Hint: Find a military inspired piece that you can incorporate into your wardrobe that can be paired with multiple outfits so that you can layer and style if differently to create edgier looks.
