If you want a look that demands attention, then the military-inspired trend is right up your ally. The impeccable tailoring, big brass buttons and take-charge look will have you standing out from the crowd. The most important thing to keep in mind when rocking this trend is to mix in more feminine pieces to keep the outfit chic, not battle-ready. If you decide to wear an oversized military-inspired jacket, cinch in your waist with a belt and pair the jacket with a floral pant or pleated skirt. The mix of feminine pieces against the more masculine jacket will keep you looking fashion forward and not looking like a fashion disaster. I think the most important aspect of wearing this trend is to only choose one military item and wear it with other trends so you don’t look like you’re wearing a costume.
