Join the Ranks: Military Style

Wow, talk about a whirlwind trip to NY! I cannot wait for you to see the video we shot.

We've seen a resurgence of the Military trend over the last couple of years and it's one of my fave Fall/Winter trends. This time last year it was all about olive colored pieces, gold hardware and chunky boots and this year the trend has evolved to include camo prints and girly details. No matter which route you take, one of the easiest ways to add a military touch is with a jacket! I worked a military jacket into a few looks on Wednesday's shoot and my inner Janet Jackson totally came out:

How fierce is the jacket? You know I'm a jeans and tee kind of girl which is why I love this look so much. The military jacket adds the perfect touch and makes a serious statement. Look at those embellished shoulders and button details! It definitely has a femme fatale feel to it. I went very simple with black riding boots for a chic weekend look + they're uber comfy.

No matter what your style, there are so many ways to add military touches to your look. Go for an embellished jacket or a simple olive green cargo one. Try camo printed pants with a basic white tee or layer on a chambray shirt for an easy breezy outfit. What's your favorite way to incorporate the military trend in to your wardrobe?
