Military inspired fashion
Apr 19 2010 by Liz Lamb, The Journal
STAND to attention with the latest military trend. LIZ LAMB has the details.
IF LAST winter’s military mania was all about soldier chic, this season is more Operation Desert Storm.
Winter’s red, black and brassy embellishments have been upstaged by a new uniform of khakis, sands and tan detailing.
Think military mixed in with utilitarian safari and you’re on the right track.
Military launched an attack on virtually every major catwalk for the spring/summer season, varying wildly from Balmain’s sequinned camouflage mini dresses through to Celine’s understated khaki separates.
The beauty of this trend is its versatility in transforming from practical daytime combat to night-time glamour with a flash of sequins or bejewelled epaulette shoulders.
If your workplace sometimes feels like a war zone, go armed for your 9-5 with military’s new take on tailoring.
This super-smart version of the trend is all about simplicity so avoid embellishments and stick to clean lines, classic silhouettes.
TRY: Betty Jackson; Black at Debenhams khaki shirt dress, £49; Wallis grey military jacket, £65; George zip khaki dress, £14.
