Style Trend: Thoroughly Modern Military

There's a new take on military and it took the runways of Fall/Winter 2012 by storm, especially with designers and lines like Elizabeth and James and Jason Wu. Tailored jackets and dresses with intricate jewelry mixed with the classic colors of green, brown and black. 

-- Military is a fairly easy trend to incorporate into your wardrobe. Stick with a lot of dark, neutral colors like army green, browns and black is always a good accent color. 

-- The new military trend is all about tailored dresses and jackets. Try a belted coat with a feminine twist like the one below from Ted Baker London or an empire line dress that is full of navy, brown and tweed (or any color you desire!)

-- Shoes are always a great place to start with this trend, especially if you aren't sure you want to suit up. Try a bootie with embroidery up the side or a over-the-knee boot in a dark suede.

-- This is one trend where you can get away with head-to-toe military and not be overwhelming. Why not try all of these style tips together this fall, you'll be sure to look polished and pulled together.
