Style: Battle of the Sexes

 In Feature, Style

A high-ranking trend in both camps, the military look defines fashions must-have uniform this fall.


Although its presence has been known for several seasons, fall’s military trend invasion felt more like an attack; from brass buttons and epaulettes, to cargo pants and camo prints, all that was missing was some ammo—though several belts did skew bandolier. Crossing what some may deem enemy lines, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey arguably suited the look to both sexes best; he catered nearly as many incarnations of his centerpiece—the aviator jacket—to men as to women. He described the versatile style as “strong and sexy, masculine and feminine,” a sentiment that arguably sums up all active branches of the military trend. For fall and winter, be sure to equip your side of the closet with combat boots, utility belts and all things army green; when cold weather strikes, not only will you be armed with fashion‘s most-lauded look, but you’ll undoubtedly be dangerous, too.
