In addition to my love of military jackets and coats, I also have a thing on army looks (checkout how I wore a pair of army shorts). So I´m really pleased to know that last season´s Army&Denim trend is here to stay for the couple of seasons – spring and summer. Green tones look lovely when teamed with denim and yet you have to let the army appeal stay dominant. Add a military feel with over-dimensioned silhouettes and broad-shouldered jackets or coats.
If you´ve already worked with Army&Denim trend last season, rework them to transition for spring. If you haven´t, here are some looks to inspire you.
Army Jacket with Leather Pants
For a cool weekend look or an edgy street outfit, wear this courageous army jacket over a nude vest and black leather pants or black-coated jeans. If it´s warm enough, keep the jacket open for a relaxed appeal. The decorative studs on the shoulders tells that you´re wearing a trend. Channel a complete edginess with leather laced up boots.
Army Green Maxi Dress and Denim Jacket
Army trend speaks girly too! Take for instance this army green bandeau maxi dress, it looks dreamy and yet powerful. To cover your shoulders in the evening, layer over a cropped denim jacket in light blue if you´re to keep things casual. But if you want a more polished look, opt for black leather jacket.
Army Green Blazer with Black Denim
This army green blazer is quite unique with its shoulder strap design and decorative buttons to the cuffs. You can style it up for a casual smart look with black denim jeans and black platform pumps. The top to layer under the jacket depends on you, whether it´s a vest tank or a pullover.
Boyfriend Jeans with Army Pants
This look is all about the pump, really. Military patterned heels will definitely grab attention so make sure to display them as much as possible. Wear them with boyfriend jeans to provide more view. A military-inspired khaki jacket will match your heels perfectly although it´s completely optional. If you rather let the shoes to do all the talking, then go for a more low-key top.
