TREND: Combat Boys and Girls

The boots say it all – the military trend is here. This Fashionisto's combo of Ray-bans, a double chest pocket shirt, and combat boots is a perfect example of the Army trend. Designers everywhere are giving a nod to our men and women in uniform with one of fall's most popular trends. This style comes in the form of jackets, boots, tops and accessories. This style has even the wimpiest trendsetters looking fabulously rugged and combat ready. 

My favorite military chic ensemble for Fashoinistos is a military vintage jacket, dark washed denim jeans, and of course tall combat boots. If you're not much of a combat boot boy try these military inspired tennis shoes from ALDO. The buckles and extended height of the shoes gives you the same trendy look without going heavy duty. For ladies, I love the aviator look. You can accomplish this style by combining a bomber jacket, a button down skirt, tights, booties and (obviously) aviator sunglasses. This look emphasizes femininity and at the same time brings out the tough side of any Fashionista. 

If you're looking to add a little combat style to an already complete ensemble, try including military inspired accessories. This bracelet which dons charms influenced by military medals once again combines feminine with masculine for a chic look. This cross-body bag is another great way to accessorize military style. 

Hint: Try to avoid camo patterned clothing. Though this print definitely follows the military trend, try to find more military structured clothing rather than simply military colored.
