TRENDS | Camo & Green Are All The Rage

Again? It only took another 10 years for this to come full circle. Military inspired looks were splashed all over the runways this fall ranging from the camo prints to the color khaki and uniform inspired details. Designers like Jason Wu, McQ, Donna Karen, Burberry Prorsum and Victoria Beckham (just to name a few) have all marched to the same tune by featuring this trend in their Fall 2012 Runway shows.

Items like army inspired blouses, belted jackets/coats (see main image courtesy of STYLE.COM) skinny cargos, combat boots and military embellished accessories or colors are just a few ways to wear the trend. Here are some of my favourite ways you can incorporate the look into your fall wardrobe without over doing it:

This faceted bead army green Ettika bracelet, $85 is a perfect way to round out your military look. (Lucky for you, I happen to have some in stock!)

I just picked up this short military coat from Zara, $199. Sleek, plenty of room to fit a sweater underneath, love the gold button and epaulette details.

Camo printed pants can be a hit or a major miss for me. I personally only like them slim and the fade on the print has to be, well, faded. For $79 these cargo jeans from Urban Outfitters do the trick. To give this rough trend a more feminine look I pair it up with my favourite pointed pumps and a cozy grey cashmere sweater.
