When it comes to trends for Fashionistas and Fashionistos, military inspiration has always played a big influence. Let’s look past your typical camouflage print this season, and take it a little further like this Fashionisto did. Everything from jackets with shoulder pieces to gold buttons or accents are the perfect way to dote an army trend. With dark to olive green hues, start your look with the perfect bomber military jacket. For Fashionistos, J.Crew has a very similar jacket like the one worn here with a masculine aesthetic. However, not all military looks have to be for Fashionistos. During World War II, women wore green jackets with fitted waists and skirts below the knee. Recreate something similar with a longer dress and this vintage style military vest from Zara.
Nothing completes an army look like combat boots. Combat boots are the most versatile boot for all seasons because they can be dressed up or down for most occasions even though they give off more rugged vibes. Steve Madden has many colors and styles for both genders. Troopa in the cognac or black color is a staple boot for Fashionistas. You will see them walking all over Indiana University’s campus. The sidecar boot from Steve Madden adds a buckle detail on a classic look for Fashionistos. They are the perfect boot to tuck in your joggers or skinny jeans.
Regardless of your specific style intentions, take some advice from this Fashionisto and try sticking to all over neutral colors. Not into the army green? Dark khaki is another military-inspired color that complements all skin tones. One of the best and cheapest ways to find this clothing is from thrift shopping or your local Army and Navy Surplus store.
