Fall in Line with the Season’s Military Khaki Look

Get your commander-in-chic on with the season’s best army green and uniform detailing. If the Fall 2014 runways told us anything, it’s that rank and file has never looked better.

Olivier Rousteing at Balmain paired a crisply-constructed peplum with a cropped cargo jacket to lead the pack as purveyor of the trend, while Preen showcased a felted wool coat complete with epaulettes and Emilio Pucci drew inspiration from fighter pilots with Peter Dundas’ full collar aviator bomber jacket interpretation.

Opting for both fashion and function with khaki as the dominating shade, the rules and rigor of the military seized designers’ attention resulting in strict silhouettes, structured tailoring and a pocket provided for everything but the kitchen sink. From cargo pants to shirts and jackets, here’s how to work the trend into your look now.
