On The Catwalk
Dolce & Gabanna | Gucci
At Dolce & Gabbana, models marched down the runway in glam-girl military jackets, packing a punch with all-over sequins and gold tassels that had us crushing hard. Gucci also made military styling their mission with structured bags, panelled with the brand’s signature red and green stripes, and covered in gold metal hardware for extra edge.
On The High Street
How to wear the military trend *without* looking like you’ve joined the actual army? Simple – start with the bag. Quilted mini bags and backpacks in classic khaki are an easy way into the trend, made all the more modern with faux snakeskin textures, red trims, and gold-tone metal chains.
If you wanna take utilitarian styling to the next level, embellished totes and cross-body creations are where it’s at. Think uniform navy palettes with bold military stripes, dressed up with badge-like embroideries and ceremonial jewels that’ll send your jaw to the floor. Sir, yes, sir.
