The biggest trend for Fall 2010 / Winter 2011 is Military styled outfits. I’m loving how easy this stylish trend will be to incorporate into my current wardrobe.
Look for slim cargo pants, army green and dusty gray colors, military styled jackets and vests, tailored shirts, military boots and slouchy slim pants.
Don’t be afraid of slouchy slim pants. They are neither slim nor baggy – they’re both! A flattering look for slim girls as well as those with an hourglass or pear shaped figure. Be careful if you’re an apple shape and round shaped or thicker waisted ladies should avoid these pants and opt for straight leg cargos with a bit of stretch in them. (Read more about Body Shape)
Tailored shirts look great on everyone. You can find affordable button down shirts in just about any store including Gap.com and oldnavy.com. If you have a large chest, make sure you purchase the correct size for your chest. You don’t want the buttons to look like they’re going to pop and be able to see in between your buttons right to your bra! Not flattering. You may need to shop at Torrid.com to find a tailored shirt that will fit your chest perfectly without being baggy on the bottom.
You can easily make this trend work appropriate by swapping out the pants for a slim pencil skirt. Amazon has an amazing selection of skirts that are ideal to incorporate into the military trend. Shop slim pencil skirts on Amazon.com.
