Military Green Shirt – ASOS | Moto Leggings – Forever 21 | Bag – Mango | Sandals – Zara | Sunglasses – RayBan
Military inspired outfits have been our perennial favorites. Fall is the only season when we are inclined towards an earthy color like army green. While this perception is going to change this Spring as Military green/ Khaki tones and army inspired clothing was all over Spring/Summer – 15 runways. From Marc Jacobs’s sharp military silhouettes to Ralph Lauren safari vibes, in case you are still not over fall colors then this is one way to keep wearing them in spring. A deep color like Marsala, a great mix of bordeaux and brownish shades being the Pantone of the year 2015 it’s not surprising deep shades showing an influence on runway fashion.
In fall we usually wear heavy utilitarian jackets and parkas. The key to transform this trend for spring is to opt for comfy silhouettes and relaxed fabrics like the linen shirt I am wearing here. When you have a printed or textured garment then the print and the texture does the talking for it but when it comes to solid neutral pieces the detailing fills up the blanks. For this instance the huge pockets of the shirt. Usually I do not opt for boyfriend shirts but I made an exception this time.
Another way to amp up such simple outfits is to pick something with minute but interesting details like the biker chic ribbed pattern on the leggings. Sometimes there are pieces that are just meant to go together. I’ve had this shirt in my closet for quite some time now. I was tempted many times to pair it with leather pants but I was looking for something with detail like paneled leather which matched the rugged appearance of the shirt and I came across these Moto Leggings. While keeping the details and texture on the leggings the focus I wanted to keep the look extremely casual hence the minimal accessorising.
I absolutely adore how the neutral tones of the outfit are blending with the colors of the backdrop. Let me know what do you think of my take on transitioning a fall trend to summer.
