Our intent is not to beat the same drum over and over again. However, enough cannot be said about the military’s influence on fashion.
Like many of you, I proudly have a closet full of army green pieces. Trench coat, pea coat, bomber jacket, army caps; you name it, I’ve got it!
Over the past few years, we have witnessed an influx of camo prints on jackets, coats, pants, and accessories. With the arrival of fall, fashion has seen the re-emergence of pieces like the pea, trench, and bomber coats.
I chose “re-emergence” carefully as I firmly believe the military trend has never formally left and will never really leave the fashion world. Do you agree?
We are getting inspiration from the following fashion bloggers and celebrities who are also smitten with the military jacket trend:

It’s easy to love Karla’s ingenious play on the military jacket trend. She took inspiration from it, but her look is not overly masculine.
