How to Rock Military Style

Happy Veterans Day! To all the Military personnel who serve our country, your service is priceless and appreciated. Not only do military protect our country, they also inspire pretty hot fashion  (and sometimes lust- yes, men in uniforms are hot!).

One of the major trends on the Fall 2013 runway is military inspired clothing. What I love about these looks, is that it's comprised of clean lines, dark colors (perfect for fall), and has tough androgynous appeal. You don't have to wear camouflage to be military chic (sorry, it just makes me feel very 'People Of Walmart'). Some of the key elements needed to pull of this look and stay sophisticated are: 


  • Mix hard (military wear, leathers, metals) and soft components (satin fabrics, jewelry, make-up)
  • Use an editing eye. Military aesthetic is clean and airy. Reduce the clutter of too many accessories
  • Metallics go great with Navy, Army Green, Cream, and White colors found in military uniforms
  • Purchase essential military style pieces that always come back in fashion (Army style jacket, sailor pants, striped shirts, dog tag necklace, aviator sunglasses)
  • Keep your purse small to medium sized and structured. This isn't the time for Boho satchel bags.


Here are some of my favorite ways to rock the look and still stay chic!
