Basic Training

Stand at attention in designers military musts.

 

The men’s runways of fall 2011 were flooded with looks that harkened an “In the Army Now” mentality—but this year, fashion’s boot camp was much less extreme. Designers’ fall 2012 take trended toward a more casual type of order than the uniformed getups of seasons past. This year, it’s all about buttons, pockets and relaxed styles sporting an impeccably tailored fit—as seen on the runways of Marc Jacobs and more. Start by incorporating army green, “in-the-navy” and khaki tones with uniform detailing into your everyday wardrobe. Or, get the look in one swift move by investing in an army-inspired jacket or a utilitarian satchel—and consider it your perfect salute to the trend topping the ranks this fall.
