Celeb Trend Alert: Military Chic
Our guest blogger, Heather Campbell-Green of Celebrity Style Guide, trains her eagle eye on Hollywood style.
The military trend, it seems, is here to stay. This fact was never more evident then when we saw Balmain revisit this trend in a fresh and exciting new way on their runway last fall. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba and Rachel Bilson have all embraced the trend this year.
I have never seen a celebrity style cult following of any one piece more evident then I have with the military inspired J Brand “Houlihan” cargo pant ($230, bloomingdales.com). It’s been seen on dozens of celebrities including Rihanna.
We should all have a least one classic military piece in our wardrobe. Whether it’s the favorite military green jacket that’s been sitting in the back of your closet or the feminine and slim cut cargo pants that you saw in the store. To keep the look fresh, try pairing darker olive greens and navy with a brown leather and shearling jacket.
Key points to keep in mind when following the military trend are simplicity and functionality. Military fashions can found in a wide range of price points. Pick the store that fits your budget and go from there.
