STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: One, Two, Three, Four. What’s Your Closet Calling For?

Style Advice of the Week

One, two, three, four, what’s your closet calling for? Military inspired attire, that’s what it’s demanding. Let this trend rope you in without having to lift a finger. On second thought, those shopping bags filled with rugged pieces might help pump up your guns. Abort those girly frills and suit up military style. This season’s camo does everything but blend in to its surroundings. Combat your fellow sweatpants-clad students in your military inspired garb.

Left, left, left, right, left is the tune designers marched to this fall. Victoria Beckham armed her runway collection with Army-inspired trench coats trimmed with leather. Also, Jason Wu dressed his model platoon in Army green banded with leather belts and gold buttons.

While marching across campus I scoped out this Fashionista. She utilized the utilitarian coat and combat boots in her fall wardrobe. Her canary colored scarf may have blended into the fall foliage but her attire did not.

Speaking of blending in, the camouflage print is bursting onto the fashion scene from jackets to pants. You don’t even have to get your hands dirty to wear this trend. Aside from the print, other military influenced pieces are dominating fashion like the utilitarian jacket. It has as many pockets as it does pairing options. To keep with the military theme, it can be worn with pants or a dress and combat boots. Let your bulky socks peek out from your boots for added fashionable weaponry. Use this jacket to dress up or dress down your uniform. This fall’s combat boot rivals the classic riding boot. It is as fashionable as it is practical for the long winter ahead.

Gold accessories are the perfect pairing for the earthy military tones. Single or layered gold necklaces complement the textured camo print. Also, you can try an eye-catching headband to add a feminine touch. A headband can be especially practical if you didn’t have time to shower before class. To up the ante on your rough and tumble outfit add studs. Studded flats can add that final hard edge to your look.

Military-esque attire has infiltrated fashion. If you don’t have the Benjamins to drop on a camouflage coat, then an Army Navy store can become your best friend this fall for your militarized D.I.Y. creations. Studding or adding jewels to your military jacket is a crafty option to attract covetable attention.

March to your own beat this fall in military inspired garb.
