One of the hottest trends this autumn winter was the military look, complete with gold and silver hardware, khaki tones and military-inspired detailing. We’ve got a great range of military trend items here on Littlewoods, with something to suit every body shape. Here are our top tips for finding the perfect military trend item for you and your shape.
The key tones of the military trend are khaki, brown and black, so picking up an item in one of these colours with military detailing will automatically give your wardrobe a much-needed seasonal update.
The Diesel Getlegg Skinny Jeans in a washed khaki shade are great for a range of body shapes – make sure if you’re petite or a pear shape you team them with high heels and a bold top in order to balance out your shape. We also really like the Fearne Cotton Military Jersey Skirt with a double-breasted effect and cute metal buttons; this is a fab skirt for more athletic body shapes as the buttons draw the eye horizontally.
A great military-inspired item to have in your wardrobe is the South Faux Fur Collar Military Coat, which comes in khaki or navy with a contrast collar. The wide buckle belt means that this is the perfect coat for hourglass figures, as it accentuates the waist. The feature buttons and large pockets help to complete the look.
For pear shapes, the South Petite Military Maxi Coat is an excellent choice; as well as accentuating your waist thanks to the large belt, the flowing skirt skims over any lumps and bumps! For athletic shapes, add a little extra curvy bulk with the South Petite Parka Jacket, the ultimate ‘off duty model’ item. Wear with skinny jeans and heels to keep it smart, not scruffy.
If you just fancy dabbling in the military trend, but aren’t sure if a full wardrobe overhaul would work, how about experimenting with some colours and textures? The Nails Inc Fouberts Place Limited Edition Polish in Khaki Grey will add a touch of feminine military chic to any look, or try a green eyeshadow for a subtle nod to the trend. Gold, silver and gunmetal grey are all great military accents, so try a pair of chunky geometric earrings, like the FCUK Hexagon Long Drop Earrings, or a chunky bracelet, like the Studded Wooden Bangle, to easily update your look.
