Trend Alert: Military Chic
August 2, 2005
Atten-TION! Fashion gets very military this Fall with regulation style that looks cool and crisp, even when at ease. It’s more of a Dress Navy look than a green Army Fatigue thing, in a color scheme made mostly of navy blue, white, and khaki, with brass buttons and epaulet embellishments. You’ll see scores of stylish sailor pants worn on land legs, but your best bet for getting in on this trend will be with a wear-everywhere military jacket. Not only will it keep you warm when the weather turns chilly, the structured cut will slim your waist without you having to suffer through basic training. Now that’s something worth saluting!
