Not exactly fitting for a night out at L’Orange, local purveyor of fine French cuisine (unless you go for the haute couture incarnation), military design in fashion is certainly making an impact.
You see it with teens, tweens and full-grown bi-peds; male and female.
So if you’re ready to get on board, here is the best of military design in fashion.
Lots of pockets
The fact that pilot jackets just plain look cool, this version from Alpha Industries is also extremely functional, particularly as we slide (kicking and screaming) into Fall and Winter. Pockets galore, 100% waterproof and will keep you warm even with temps as low as 25 degrees; now that’s all-purpose. Plus, it just plain looks cool.
Stylish and trendy-setting
Since we’re already in the jacket department, let’s mosey around a little bit. You may not know Leather Coats ETC; well known for their various leather goods, has a good handle on military design in fashion too. A classic leather jacket is just one of many trendy-military inspired jackets they offer, and many of them are reasonably priced.
Cool in capris
Here’s something for the teens, or the really young-at-heart senior citizens out there that are feeling a little spunky. Part of military design in fashion is the use of green; military green that is. These cropped jeans from dELiA’s are the perfect combination of trendy style with just enough Armed Forces undertones.
Doubles as stylish top
Technically, Alloy calls this their Military Jacket, but clearly this works all on its own. Several Alloy shoppers have reviewed this beautiful piece, and so far nothing but top marks from the ladies who know. Soft, comfortable and damn flattering; rave reviews if ever there were any. Ready for the best part? Head over to Alloy’s now and you can own this for under $15! Gotta go, I’ve got a present to buy.
Authentic military style
Okay, so guys like to play Army well into their 70’s; what of it? After that it’s just for babies; but until that fateful day, wow him with an authentic Swiss Victorinox (how cool is that!) military watch from Ashford. And be prepared to hear him scratch out “Delta One-Niner, Delta One-Niner” at the oddest times and places. It’s just what we do.
