Get the Look: Military Style
Military style has been around for a few years now, but its popularity shows no sign of declining with celebrities as diverse as Tulisa and Madonna spotted in army-inspired attire. Military style is all about smart, functional, understated pieces that let the world know that you mean business! But if you’re having visions of head-to-foot camouflage gear and night-vision goggles, think again! Military style is popular because it’s as feminine as it is functional. Here’s our guide to getting it right…
The classic military colours are green and khaki, so look at ways of incorporating them into your wardrobe. This figure hugging Laura Scott Blouse is a great example of a women’s top that really nails on the functional but flattering element of military style. The deep v-neck and buttoned cuffs are also very summer-friendly.
This Buffalo London Belted Coat manages to capture two key elements of the look. In addition to being the perfect shade, it also has distinctive oversized buttons. It looks great worn open over jeans and a short sleeve, simple women’s top for an effortless smart-casual appearance.
To complete the military look, some striking knee-length boots are just the ticket. Look for black leather or faux-leather with chunky heels. These luxurious Mjus boots with eye-catching studded straps will really give you a boost. If you’re looking for something a little less pricey, you can achieve a similar look for less with these leather effect City Walk Boots.
