Military-inspired fashion is having a major fashion moment right now. Ever since seeing Joan Smalls in a 10 Crosby Derek Lam Buckle Apron dress on the June cover of Lucky Magazine, I’ve been seeing green – olive green to be exact – in every store. The color is extremely flattering on all skin tones and when paired with leather accessories or cargo pockets, gives your look a masculine edge. Here are my picks for the trend and I’ve included both affordable and splurge-worthy items. Happy Shopping!
Military Jacket // $88.00
I have seen so many variations of the military/surplus/utility jacket whilst shopping this summer and I have to say this jacket from Express is one of my favorites. The material is lightweight and the neutral color is extremely versatile. Plus, the fitted style is flattering and compared to longer, more relaxed styled military jackets, your style will look put together, not just something you threw on.
Skinny Cargo Ankle Pant // $79.90
Remember Kim Possible’s baggy cargo pants? Think of this pair as its more chic and feminine counterpart. Skinny fit to accentuate your body and cropped right at the ankle to show off your shoes.
Roll Tab Sleeve Woven Shirt // $38.00
A relaxed and oversized shirt that can go with virtually anything. I love the roll-tab sleeves and this style is great for pairing with leggings.
Katia Crossbody // $34.00
This bag features two shades of gray leather to roughen up your look. Big enough to fit the essentials plus the added strap is optional so it can be carried as a clutch or worn as a crossbody!
Lace-Up Heeled Boot // $69.90
Last fall I practically lived in my military boots which were in a shade of dark brown, but currently I’m lusting after these. The taupe-gray shade has a broad range of colors you could pair it with and the laces and visible stitch detailing add the perfect military touch.
Button-Front Drawstring Jumpsuit // $27.90
This jumpsuit is all about making military-inspired style super simple. The lightweight one-piece look is perfect for a casual summer night and features bronze snap buttons to incorporate some delicate edginess.
