HOW TO: MILITARY LINE-UP

18.09.15

AW15 sees the recurring military trend take a sophisticated slant, with utility elements adding a considered and relevant edge to any look. We explore the styling possibilities for the season, from understated to literal interpretations.

BUTTONED UP

Sharply cut, double-breasted silhouettes keep things strictly utilitarian and the Marzia coat perfectly captures the look. Layer it over slouchy tailoring and delicate shirting for a trend-led take on outerwear.

MARCHING ORDERS

Walk the line in a pair of knee-high leather boots. Wide-cut designs will toughen up a mini skirt and bare-leg combination while accessories with hardware detailing provide an additional quick fix.

ARMY SHADES

Neutral khaki and camel hues nod to frontline dressing in the most pared-back way. Team a slouchy roll-neck with knee-high boots to master chic simplicity.

LONGER LENGTHS

Calf-grazing hemlines in fluid fabrications offer a luxe take on military styling that’s subtle and elegant. Drape the Villia coat over the shoulders of a loose-cut shirt dress for an 18-hour look that’s effortless and easy to wear.

COOL AND CONTEMPORARY

Army-inspired styling works particularly well when it comes to outerwear and the Via jacket features signature pocket and epaulette detailing that will put a directional spin on a simple white blouse.
