From military jackets to tall and sleek boots, the fall collections were packed with military-style pieces that we couldn’t wait to try. We spotted this trend down the fall fashion runways too at shows like Altuzarra, Jason Wu, and Victoria Beckham. Every season, this age-old trend takes on many forms and for fall, we saw chic coats and capes, fitted trousers, knee-high boots, exaggerated shoulders, and gold accents all in dark moody colors of blacks, olives, and khakis.
So, to pull off this trend the right way, here are 5 tricks to look chic in military.
1. Boots should be tall and sleek.
Tuck your skinny black jeans into them, slip on a camel-colored roll-neck sweater (like the naval soldiers wore), add an olive-colored anorak and you’re working the military trend. [Image]
2. It’s All About the Jacket

3. Go glam in feminine-inspired pieces
Instead of army-inspired coats, go for khaki skirts, sleeveless combat dresses and loose-fitting button ups in olive shades. If you can’t let go of your military coat, pair it with a feminine dress. [Image]
4. Can’t go wrong with Shiny Gold Accents
Gold is the metal you want whether you choose buttons or pretty gold accessories. [Image]
5. Olive green is the color of the military
Whether it’s a nice silk blouse, pencil skirt, or curve-hugging dress, you’re working the trend just as long as you keep your silhouette feminine. [Image]
