The military movement isn’t over yet and at Littlewoods Nice Boot Camp we’re standing to attention for the next round of cool utility kit marching off the catwalks. We’re loving the way the military vibe has become softly moulded into everyday fashion, creating great casual looks, sleek evening outfits and now military inspired boots for Autumn Winter 2010.
The military trend just keeps on reinventing itself, but hey, we’re not complaining. We heart military fashion! Let’s start with the basics, as shopping early for a feel-good, look-good winter coat is always top of any fashionista’s new season style agenda. Look out for a statement military winter coat with extra detailing to front panels, cuffs and buttons that pick up on the military mode. Added epaulettes are a really sharp detail too and give your look that edge over last season’s high street looks. With so much army clobber around you need to stand out from the crowd and up your ranks to Sergeant!
If you’re looking for a soft, new take on the military vibe, and this season that’s key – go for this funnel neck military coat by Oasis. It creates a structured silhouette with soft ruffle details adding a feminine twist that’s totally on trend. Wear both coats over sludgy coloured tunics, skinny jeans or skinny cargo trousers with strap and stud boots from French Connection. Or if you prefer a practical lace-up that adds a military kick to leggings, jeggings and patterned tights, then quick march to stylish military boots from Kickers. They’re so going to last beyond one season.
This outfit needs you! If full on changing guard isn’t really part of your kitbag then try introducing one or two little accents into your everyday fashion arsenal. Take this military cardigan in simple nautical stripes with embellished gold button detailing and ¾ length sleeves to breeze gently into into Autumn. Or, add this leather buckle cross body bag, with just a hint of army and navy inspired buckles and metal trimmings. It works wardrobe wide for work, weekends, evenings and is really practical and well priced, leaving you hands-free to check out other accessories to go with the look!
Fash-pack front runners can take military mode to new heights with our zip through tunic jumpsuit, so flattering with opaque tights and platform clogs. It’s a great day or night number. By day, zip up and layer with a stretchy fitted top underneath and oversized cardi to work those on trend details like slouchy pockets and soft ruching. If you’ve got it, flaunt it and hit the dancefloor all guns blazing with sleeked back hair, a hint of bronzer and extreme platform nude heels. You’ll soon rally the troops!
However you join up to military thinking this season, keep it easy and feminine with minimal make-up and slim fitting shapes to show you know how to play the new softer vibe. So girls, do your duty and look fabulous!
