It is one of the biggest trends of the season, and whether you want to channel it subtly or go hell for leather, there is a way for everyone to rock the military look.
Khaki goes with military chic as suede and floppy hats go with vintage 70’s. As a key neutral shade, khaki goes with pretty much every colour palette, from your light pastels to bold primary colours. The best way to wear your khakis this season is to team with complementary neutrals like beige, cream and white. Throwing on a khaki jacket, oversized kimono or fringed handbag will give a subtle nod to the trend.
Little details like buttons, lapels, epaulettes, buckles and straps, and pockets are at the heart of the military trend. It’s all about utility chic, so whether you opt for an oversized pocketed waistcoat in a shade of khaki, a pair of combat-style trousers or a Sergeant Pepper-style buttoned jacket; even the most subtle detail can make a big impact.
Camouflage is back with a bang this season and channels the military trend like no other pattern. Again, you can make as big or as subtle a statement as you like with the camo print, but remember it’s all about balance; a camouflage print coat will look amazing next to your plain black, beige or tan basics, while a camo print bag or pair of shoes will add a quirky twist to your brighter summer outfits.
Tip: If you're feeling adventurous, experiment with multi-coloured camouflage, or camo in pretty summer shades.
