We women often use fashion to demonstrate our innate power. Pantsuits, made incredibly popular by Hillary Clinton, were all over the Spring 2017 runways. But maybe you’re not looking for a matching set with removable shoulder pads and a handful of simple buttons. Military fashion is another idea. Now before you picture all-over camouflage jumpsuits and classic (read: boring) navy-style peacoats, think again. The new military is softer, more subtle and definitely chic. Double-breasted, gilded or camo-inspired, these updated pieces are easily identified by their strong silhouettes and tough chicness while avoiding an in-your-face vibe.
Totally flexible, this traditionally masculine look can be styled to embrace a tomboy aura or teamed with delicate accessories to give it something distinctly feminine. Paired with frayed jeans, a touch of whimsical color or statement shades, these street style stars did a little of everything. Ready to reenlist in the military trend? We’ve picked out the best examples to inspire your own military reimagining.
