Trend Report: Military

The timeless military trend makes yet another comeback, with camouflage and khaki ruling on the runway.

With their slightly boyish accents, key pieces from the military trend lend a tough-chic feel to any look. Here’s some epic runway-spiriation from top designers.Think: Strong silhouettes combined with the military’s famous camouflage print.Key pieces: Parkas, puffers with hints of faux-fur, camo prints and khaki shades, metal hardware and hints of olive.


Tommy Hilfiger

We love the contrast of a boyish parka paired against a fresh and feminine tropical print. Don’t be afraid to mix and match with other trends you love, like floral or Asian-inspired pieces.

Nanette Lepore

Military doesn’t always have to mean manly. We love this softer, feminine approach from Nanette Lepore that lends a romantic feel to the military trend.


For an ultra-luxe, dressed-up take on military, look no furthe than Balmain. This leather on leather look oozes sophistication and sexiness.


If you’re not keen for full combat look (you don’t want to scare your colleagues), take inspiration from Wildfox. Channel military vibes by wearing aviators, khaki-green and combat boots with your normal wardrobe.
