The women's military Fashion Trend is going to be massive once again this Autumn/Winter so it's time I give your Military preview. They key to the whole look is the military jacket and this is going to be your MAJOR winter fashion statement. So think big shiny metal buttons and shoulder epaulettes to really frame your body shape and plant you firmly within the trend. I would stick to the dark monotone colours like black, navy grey and even red for some of that old Napoleon regiment feel.
The catwalks were full of military items this year with Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, YMC, Mentor and Burberry all featuring the trend prominently during their previews. Add a bit of runway glamour to your military look by teaming up a military jacket with jeans or a jersey dresses and knee high boots. Looks great as an "edgier" look, and the whole trend gives off a really powerfull attitude and vibe. The Fashion A-List has really got on board with this with everyone Kate Moss to Alexa Chung to Sienna Miller rocking this hot trend (see above).
What I love about military is that you do not need to go over board... The military jacket is such a statement piece that you can mix and match trends like Grecian and Military or Rock Glam and Military together. In the picture above Mischa rocks a beautiful Grecian dress with a statement military jacket to create a look which is right on trend and has a really powerful presence. A great example how to make this work.
