LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Reporting For Duty

I still have all of my tests and papers from high school stored in a box in my room. What about my favorite stuffed animal from when I was younger? Yep, it's safely packed away in the back of my closet. So I might have a problem with letting things go. But when it comes to fashion, which constantly repeats itself, I don't see this as quite a problem at all.

Military-inspired clothing is one of those repeating trends for fall. Fall collections from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham and Jason Wu all featured military-inspired pieces. From the runway to the hallway, this Fashionisto proves you can make this trend work on any level.

I was instantly drawn to this Fashionisto because of his military-inspired jacket. Featuring brass buttons and deep pockets, it's the perfect piece to either make your entire outfit or just throw on over whatever you're wearing. Even though it's not featured in a camouflage print, the size and worn quality of the jacket lend to the military vibe without being overbearing.

I love how this Fashionisto created a comfy, casual vibe by leaving his jacket open over the rest of his outfit. As if not to detract attention from his cool jacket, this Fashionisto kept the rest of his outfit simple by dawning all black. This Fashionisto suited up by wearing a black hooded sweatshirt under his jacket for added comfort and warmth. To tote his books to class, this Fashionisto chose a funky backpack which also lends to the cool look of his outfit.

Report for duty like this Fashionisto by starting with a military-inspired jacket like this one or this one. Keep the rest of your outfit simple by pairing it with a black sweatshirt and pants and you're ready for action!

Hint: Don't be afraid to mix a camouflage jacket with other prints such a striped or plaid shirt for a different take on the military-inspired trend.
