The Military Trend – Yay or Nay?

The military trend is nothing new, it has been on the rise since about 2008; however this year, it is slightly softer and more feminine. It is more understated chic rather than over-the-top embellishment. I am still yet to buy a military jacket, as I am still deciding on this trend, but the more I research on it the more I love it. Think it’s time to get me one of those jackets!

These two are my favourite from Zara
Combat Jacket paired with jeans and a tee-shirt

Think navy (my ultimate favourite colour) and army green. Military jackets are great for the approaching spring as they are light and are the perfect finish to a cute dress or jeans and a tee.
And now the age old question: How do I wear it?
The military look is far more feminine this time around. So pair you military jacket with a cute dress as Mischa Barton did.

Or for a more easy-wearing daytime outfit pair a military jacket with a white tee-shirt, skinny jeans and pumps (look at the combat jacket above).
I stumbled across a blog called Le Blog de Betty, she is a perfect example of how to wear the military style.

For more beautiful military trend pics have a look at The Entertainment Blog:

I have converted myself, YAY for Military!
