Let's Hear it for the Boys

The military trend is one that's been on the fashion world's radar for ages and it doesn’t seem like it’s going away any time soon. Khaki greens, heavy leathers and lace-up boots are the epitome of this look as seen in both high fashion runway collections and our very own campuses too. Here's one Fashionisto who pulls off the military look the right way. First off, his military inspired jacket is a key element of the outfit. Light weight for fall, easy to layer with, such as with his awesome T-shirt underneath, and perfectly detailed with the little flag patch; all these components fit right in with the military trend. His dark pants and lace-up boots definitely help complete the look. Overall, he gives off the stylish military look without overdoing the harshness that's sometimes seen with this trend.

A look like this is easy to replicate. It’s all about the military basics layered together the right way. Fill your closet with a staple army green article of clothing or two. Because this colour is so big this season, it should not be able to find a nice jacket or shirt in it. Duffle coats in this colour are a popular like this one from American Apparel. Lace-up boots, also being one of falls rising trends, should not be hard to locate. Dr. Martens are an example of classic lace-ups you could buy and there website has plenty of colours and styles to choose from.

Hint: Although khaki green is the prime colour of this look, try not to overdo it. Stick to one article in this colour and match it with a more subdued colours like black or dark brown to complete the look.

The military style is no new trend for men’s fashion, yet it still proves to be a popular one. I spotted this subtle military-inspired outfit on campus and it immediately caught my eye. The green color of this Fashionisto’s shorts matches his hat perfectly and together they create a trendy military look. What I like most about his outfit is how he pairs it with Nike high tops. They make his outfit look more casual and athletic while the red and black colors of his sneakers complement his military green shorts. He is able to incorporate the military look without overindulging in camo print and is successful in pulling it off.

This is an easy trend to duplicate and can be done in so many ways. For a subtle look like this Fashionisto’s just incorporate military green in your outfit, whether in a pair of shorts, a button-up or even a casual pair of boots For a stronger, bolder look go for a military inspired jacket, loaded with brass buttons and military decals. Feel free to wear camo print, but wear it in moderation because too much will make you look more G.I. Joe than this trendy Fashionisto. If you don’t already own any military-inspired pieces, don’t worry! Look to Tommy Hilfiger for a preppy, garment dyed military jacket or find military pants at Marc by Marc Jacobs. If you are a serious shopper hit the thrift store to find authentic military garments!
