Military Trend: New Fashion Classics

Thursday, 16 December 2010

military trend fashionMost current trends barely last through two or three seasons - as we know, fashion is so transient that only a few items of clothing can survive in the wardrobe of fashion-conscious women for several successive years. The women's military fashion trend isn't going anywhere, though like all true fashion trends, in 2010 the military trend will evolve. Gone (but not quite) are the decadent lashings inspired by military uniforms of the Georgian and Victorian eras. Rather, military is now about functionality and utility. If the 18th and 19th centuries originally inspired women's military fashion, then it's true to say that in 2010 it's inspired by the military uniforms of the 20th century.

Military trend was initially popularized during the 60s, only as a protest to the Vietnam War. Later the craze spread rapidly as a mode of fashion; with the hippies taking all its credit. Trench coats, berets, and jackets have enjoyed seasons of popularity in the past, and camouflage was a hot favorite; especially for teenagers. Now, the military trend has made a comeback. This trend is seen in various formal dresses.

Basic shades for this trend are brown and green. Grey and green are the hues that dominate the scene with other shades of blue and black. Napoleon-styled jackets with high stand collars, hussar influenced garments with a gold border, and admiral coats with an air of command in it; military craze makes its unique fashion statement. Army green is seen in cropped shearling collared coats and loose fitting cargo pants.

Women generally do not prefer a boxy look or the hard military look as in men's style. Buckles, snaps, and fringes are included in their apparel. Luxurious and feminine military type leather jackets for women are available in soft leather with patches. This offers both warmth and luxury, and includes a beautiful plaid design inside.

Military Trend in Fashion Collections

Over the past few seasons, the fashion community has got a definitive proof that military trend owes its phenomenal success to Balmain's Christophe Decarnin who reintroduced military chic in his latest collections. His women's wear collection for spring-summer 2009 Decarnin showcased military jackets with ornate epaulets sprayed with sparkling crystals, while for summer 2010 Decarnin offers tattered waistcoats, luxe chainmail, skin tight cargo pants, and army surplus with sequins. Balmain designs are simultaneously evocative of Michael Jackson' spectacular stage costumes circa 1980-s and the soldier' uniforms of the late 19-th century. In fact, military trend as we know it was revived and reinvented in 2005 by Giorgio Armani.

In his collection for autumn/winter 2005 Italian designer included pieces that looked more like a stylish interpretation of the army overcoats and uniforms of the Second World War era. Armani designs were marked by the understated elegance and clean cut, simplicity and traditional dark green color (army green). If a few seasons later Christophe Decarnine relied on the 19-th century French uniforms for inspiration, Armani based his collection on the functionality of 20-th century military uniforms.

Military Trend in 2010

In the past we have been used to the usual green and brown colors of army inspired clothing.  But fashion designers are now taking a different route.  In stores, you will start to see new military designs in leather and formal wear and also in some new blue and black colors.

This trend creates a very uniform look, which is why many people like these designs. Jackets especially can instantly create a dressy look to any casual, daily outfit.  This is why the catwalk has cleverly added more sex appeal to the military trend.

You may pick from the two key looks: army and aviator (think Amelia Earhart). While the army interpretation is all about army greens it can still be broadly interpreted and we've seen it styled successfully with everything from cropped shearling collared coats to loose fitting cargo pants. A word of warning though: we have the odd occurrence of camouflage print, we'd recommend you avoid it for the time being - it's simply too soon a comeback.

The aviator interpretation of the trend is far less open. It's about a sleek look with slim cuts. And forge military green; this is all about darker hues with dark-brown leather jackets.

It is the nature of any trend to burn out during the span of time, but military fashion is not going anywhere. It keeps coming back little changes to go with the trends of time. This fashion refuses to bow out, and keeps evolving into novel variations.
