During the spring summer catwalks shows (ahem, Marc Jacobs) a new trend emerged – military style or utilitarian chic would be the next big thing. I’m not talking about camo necessarily but I am talking about shades of khaki and olive with some oversized pockets and detailing that would seem better suited for a soldier than a fashionista. That said, this military style is incredibly chic whilst still feeling incredibly cool. Giving a nod to our incredible men on the front line, this trend pays homage to the utility looks which blend fashion with practicality. Hey, anything that gives me more pockets I’m not mad at. So check out some of my favorite military style influenced pieces of the season and update your style with a utilitarian edge.
