Command Serious Attention: Military Details

This season “Military Style” is less about camo and more about refined ladylike separates. Key military details and polished pieces create a modern, feminine look.  Notice the details of the short outfit, above.  The look incorporates saturated, rich colors like olive and mustard, paired with an edgy gold necklace.  It’s military inspired but oh so feminine!

Speaking of feminine…this dress is all about sexy but the neutral earth tones (slightly resembling camo!) gives it an easy day look.  Pairing the dress with lace-up booties and a fabulous star necklace gives you a city chic style.

This look is perfect for a busy mom who wants to look amazing while out running errands! I love that this cute jacket is fitted and sophisticated in shape. The military details come in with the gold buttons and pockets. The jacket is not bulky and shows off your fabulous shape! Pair it with your most flattering jeans and a gold-toned crossbody bag for a great on-the-go look.

It’s not chic to shiver!  You need a cold weather go-to coat when you are out shopping this holiday season!  This look features a warm winter coat with button-tabbed detail. Accessories like this sleek crossbody handbag (perfect for hands-free holiday shopping!) and simple, yet stunning, star bracelet give this look just a touch of military detail.

Do you love the military trend as much as I do?  If so, how do you incorporate military details into your look?  If not, what’s stopping your from incorporating military touches into your look?  Give military chic, with a feminine vibe, a try with inspiration from the looks above!
