Aside from leather moto jackets, there’s another way to channel a more masculine and tougher vibe in your outfits: go the army route! Yes, hunter green parka jackets and camouflage prints are making a comeback.
If you remember, they were pretty big a few seasons ago, but the interest on army style dissipated. Lately, however, it looks like the fashion industry has renewed its fascination with military-inspired outerwear, so they’re back in full force!
We are totally getting inspiration from the following fashion bloggers who are also smitten with the military trend:
1. Karla from KQÑS Style
It’s easy to love Karla’s ingenious play on the army trend. You can tell she took inspiration from it, but her look is not overly masculine. She paired her jacket with earth-tone pieces to keep the look cohesive but threw in a hat for that extra edgy look.
2. Aika from Aika’s Love Closet
Aika managed to make the camo jacket look chic by wearing it with denim shorts and a layered top. It also takes good accessories to make this look work. Aika threw in a pop of red with her bag and a little Perspex with her pair of shoes.
3. Flavia from Fashion Coolture
I suspect Flavia can wear a flour sack and make it look stylish. She looks polished from head to toe in an army-style jacket and a leather ensemble.
4. Marilyn from Messages on a Napkin
Marilyn layered a floral dress over a denim one, and then capped off the look with an army-style jacket! Very clever. It works, too! It’s a wonderful summer style to covet if you are feeling a tad adventurous.
5. Meri from Meri Wild
Army jackets too warm for the summer? Try army vests like what Meri is wearing in this photo. She definitely had spunky and grungy in mind when she came up with this outfit as there are a lot of tough elements in it. Pile on accessories like statement necklaces and bracelets for a more street-style vibe to your army-inspired ensemble.
