Military style had marched right off the catwalk and into the shops and it’s taking over everything from coats to boots and those all important accessories. But it’s not just women’s fashion that has a military feel, this season is all about the military man – so get your inner Action Man ready and prepare to rock this season’s biggest style.
The military look is no stranger to the high street but this season it takes on a more refined style – gone are the blatant camouflage prints, GI Joe combat trousers and army green and in their place is an easy to wear look that will have you oozing military cool this Autumn/Winter – without much effort on your part.
Military style footwear is a great way to embrace the latest trend and adds a chic military influence, without going overboard. Try these Firetrap lace-up vintage style boots or these military inspired distressed leather boots from Henleys.
If you’re more of a straight up jeans and tee guy, or like to keep things classic and smart with a suit, but still want to add a modern twist to your winter wardrobe, it’s worth thinking about investing in a military style coat. A coat offers you the chance to make a stylish statement, it works with any outfit and it will also keep you wrapped up against the notorious British weather. This year’s military style coats come in a number of different styles, including double breasted coats and peacoats, as well as a variety of military influenced colours such as grey, dark green, navy blue and brown. This Peter Werth grey coat is perfect for a chilly winter and can be brightened up with a colourful scarf.
For a less traditional style check out this Gio-Goi peacoat with hidden zip detail – which is both smart and a little bit sporty and is an excellent addition for a cold winter as it will keep your neck nice and warm (just in case you’re not going for the whole Dr. Who scarf phenomenon!).
There’s a whole wealth of military inspired pieces though including shirts, jumpers, scarves and even the obligatory hat so why not check out Littlewoods’ style update and see what else is on offer?
