THE MIL­I­TARY COAT

Look (UK) - - FEATURE -

It’s been in­flu­enc­ing the fash­ion scene since the 60s and de­sign­ers are still ob­sessed with mil­i­tary uni­form. Strong sil­hou­ettes, brass but­tons, reg­i­men­tal badges and dec­o­rated epaulettes take this trend a mil­lion miles away from the army sur­plus store – with­out los­ing the wear­a­bil­ity fac­tor. Buy one. That’s (sort of) an or­der.

Pull & Bear 69.99

DO: Mix up your mil­i­tary wardrobe and in­tro­duce navy and beige along­side tra­di­tional khaki. DON’T: Wear this trend head to toe, un­less you want to look like you’re go­ing to a reen­act­ment of sorts. In­stead, team with leather trousers or a flo­ral midi frock.

DO: Work longer styles with heels to stop the coat from swal­low­ing your frame. Coat, £30 Dress, £13 Jumper, £8 Boots, £15 all Pri­mark
