Happy Memorial Day!

Ahhh memorial day; a day to kick off the summer bbq’s, backyard games, and fun in the sun. A luxury we have thanks to so many men and women who are fighting or have fought for the freedom of our country. They deserve honor and appreciation for all that they do. Not only do the men and women of our military encourage us to believe in the USA and unite together, their attire has inspired the runways of the 2013 fall and winter fashion shows.

The catwalk was filled with soldierly inspired coats, boots, and prints. Military chic is in, bringing strength and power to your wardrobe. Combat boots, camouflage prints and cargo jackets are trending for fall  and will be must have pieces in your closet.

Its never to early to start planning for the season to come. Look out for colors like army green, black, navy, mustard  and camouflage. All done in more feminine silhouettes, the details of large buttons, breast pockets and epaulettes, bring the force and power of a military look.

Cargo jackets, skinny pants and skirts in khaki, army green, camo. and black leather all have a place in  your closet. They are a chic and casual way to beef up your style. The tough “battleground” heritage of this look may be intimidating at first, but these trends will help you to embrace your inner strength, and bring authority to your look. SHOPSTYLE by POPSUGAR organized a great collection of pieces you can shop to get you started. Check it out here.

On Memorial Day we reflect on our military soldiers and what they have done to preserve our safety. We are privileged and free as a country, and in the midst of our hectic lives,we forget to be thankful and honor those that fight to keep it that way. This fall and winter we have an opportunity to keep our soldiers in mind everyday as we look into our closets and sport our military looks. Lets make it more than an outfit! Take the time to thank God and pray for our military, their families and our country. Thank you to all who have served and fought for us. Your willingness to lay your lives on the line is heroic and honorable….not to mention your ever so chic attire 🙂

We are excited to embrace this trend and see what looks you can come up with. Let us know what you think, and how you plan on becoming military chic this fall. Comment below or post your input to our Facebook page!

Have a Magical Day!

  1. I was always very hesitant to camouflage and green, but military boots became one of my favorite fashion pieces this winter. Even in the spring I have enjoyed wearing them with boyfriend style crop pants or jean shorts!
