Classic Military Looks by HauteAngel

Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.  Gianni Versace

There are numerous fashion trends I love and some I don’t care for. I don’t love much of the Annie Hall look inspired by Diane Keaton’s character in a Woody Allen movie long ago, although she is a stunning, well dressed woman and great actress. One trend that has “boyish” qualities I am continually, annually drawn to is the Military look. I love long jackets, boots, velvet coats Adam Ant style with epaulettes and unique buttons. You will find touches of this in almost every designers repitoirre. It is classic, cute and sassy. Here are some recent takes on the look out now:

This Kate Spade Beantown Quinn purse has the most adorable military style embellishments. *Ebates offers 3.5% cashback

No Military fashion feature is complete without mention of the classic PEA COAT. I suggest going to Army surplus stores and trying to find a real Navy peacoat with the awesome anchor buttons. They come in black and navy. You can find stores like this online too. And Etsy has many great vintage Military coats.

Last but not least, add a bit of military with a flirty camoflauge heel from The Luxury Closet (they allow layaway ladies and guaranty authenticity!) These are killer shoes. I can’t even say enough about how much I love them.
