Military Fashion

My interpretations of the new military trend. Picture 1: Vintage puffy vest, Zara shirt, VonZipper aviators. Pictures 2-4: Vintage WW1 jacket, Catholic uniform button down (yep, from high school!), Gap pants, Bass loafers, necklaces handmade (c/o my friend Erin) and unknown, VonZipper aviators.

Remember how I mentioned that military was a big look at the vintage shop? Well based on the publicity and praise given to Joseph Altuzarra's military-influenced coats from his fall ready-to-wear collection and the recent street style that has mimicked that look, I think it is safe to say that military fashion is not just a trend with vintage shoppers. I'm glad I've already stocked up. For once, I'm ahead of the game! Although I wouldn't object to rounding out my wardrobe with that Altuzarra olive pencil skirt below. It doesn't get more military-chic than that!

Although I like the evidence of sailing in the first pic via the furry jacket, I really do love your second outfit. Adorable. The necklace choice with the jacket was really well done.

Secondly, I stand by my conviction, the military look was becoming popular last year. If I knew about it, well clearly that's saying something, since a trend managed to trickle down under the rock where my fashion perception resides. I like that it's out in full force now and I like your take on it. :)
