I spy with my little Fashion eye... Military


The Military trend is not going anywhere this season! It is a trend to love. The colours of camouflage, army green, khaki, dark brown and navy blue are taking over the fashion world this winter. Some hot items to style up your wardrobe this winter include military jackets, tall faded boots, faux fur lined collars, brass buttons, leather leggings and bold shoulders. Although quite harsh and masculine sounding when paired together with something soft or a sparkly bracelet they make quite an eye-catching ensemble.

Burberry has a military-trimmed winter collection. The coats, In green and beige, with the court for years is emerging as a classic wardrobe. 
The perfect military look! Black military jacket with brass buttons all the way down the front paired with red tight leather trousers and simple black boots


Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes and Beyonce are just a few of the celebs that are working this look.

Diana, Princess of Wales chose a white military jacket with gold frogging for the Sandhurst Military Academy Passing Out Parade in April 1987

Although this look may seem a tad over budget we have been on a scouting mission to bring you the high street way to do military.

Some key items for your wardrobe!
Simple yet effective khaki skinny trousers
River Island military jacket, £34.99
Now,  let's see how long this war on fashion will last!
