Military chic is not a trend.

Last week, we talked about the versatility of army green. The sentiment goes for the whole family of military chic colors, khaki (this season, they’re calling it camel), olive drab, camouflage, nautical stripes. I’ve been noticing a lot of twill skinny jeans on the streets these days. Some of it stems from the Houlihan trend that’s dominated the denim scene the past few months. As much as I’d like to say camouflage and military chic is a trend, I can’t. In 1997 I said, “the military look is going ‘out’ any second now.” Thirteen years later, camo-chic has not left fashion consciousness long enough for me to gloat even for a minute. The same goes for leopard print. And platform shoes. Go figure!

    I’m loving this outfit…I think the stripes and the boots really add something to make it special. And as far as trends, I’m really glad that military stays around in varying degrees. A little jacket or quirky boot always distinguishes an outfit and gives it a bit of flare!

    I’m so glad to hear its not just a trend. I just got the slick skinny Citizen of humanity jeggings in the dark ivy/olive color. I was worried it wasn’t going to be a good investment, but the color is beautiful I had to have it. 🙂

    These colors khaki, camel, military green are not a trend because they completely go with the feel of Fall… You can not separate them from each other. I love these earthy colors anyway… 😉
