STYLE GURU STYLE: Army of One

A striped T-shirt, high-waisted black skinnies and taupe fringe booties are a must for every Fashionista’s closet. All of these pieces are versatile and can be worn with almost anything for a different look. In this case, by adding a camouflage jacket and leather cross-body bag makes for an urban take on military fashion.

Taking inspiration from the Donatella Versace spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, I combined military style with a classic striped print, similar to the Versace collection. I stuck to the structured military style with the jacket. I kept a more casual color palette (besides my bright pink lips). I combined the looks seen in the Versace collection with a more winter friendly feel, including the black denim and fringe booties.

In this outfit, which consists of mostly basic pieces, my goal was to create a timeless look that could incorporate camouflage. To achieve this idea, I stuck to plain colors and simple accessories to leave a majority of the attention on the jacket. The dull striped T-shirt and faded, camouflage jacket combine together to make a visually pleasing duo.

My outfit includes a striped Forever 21 T-shirt, a camouflage Forever 21 jacket, black American Eagle Outfitters skinnies and fringe ALDO booties. To add to the look, I layered a simple gold Kendra Scott necklace with a trendier gold feather necklace. A bright pink lip completed the look by adding my girly touch.

The simple striped T-shirt and black denim will never go out of style, but by adding the fringe booties, tortoise shell sunglasses and Rebecca Minkoff cross-body bag I was able to make for a trendier look. Completing the outfit with the camouflage jacket made for the perfect mix between classic and military-chic.
