Being a defense contractor, I love when military-inspired pieces appear on runways and shelves across the country. Classic military is a trend that never really dies. With its crisp tailoring, brass buttons, and the perfect complementary combination of navy and red, anything “military” can turn an otherwise unassuming outfit into a commanding one. It’s also a style easily achieved at little cost, and if you do care to invest in something more expensive, you’ll be sure it can be worn year after year. Take, for example, McQ’s military cape, Givenchy’s rubber riding boot, or the vintage military medals that are perfect for pinning on scarves and bags, available on Etsy and eBay.
