Military is trending this S/S15 season, but has re-invented itself! Say goodbye to oversized military-green jackets and army printed skinnies, and say hello to a new modern take on the utilitarian style. Falling somewhere between androgyny and femininity, the
re-appropriation of the commercial military look adopts sleek lines, waist-cinching styles, and un-traditional cuts. We like to call it modern military.
Rejecting the traditional rigid and austere militant look, modern military embraces an element of chicness and softness. Slightly rough around the edges but effortlessly put-together is the name-of-the-game, with military acting as an accent rather than as an authority. Not only does the military look easily transcend through fashion currents, but it is also trans-seasonal, with army-inspired garments easily found in heavier wools and airy crepes.
Army green continues to be the central color of this style, with color palettes of blacks, greys, and silvers accentuating its simplicity. While this pays homage to the traditional, don’t underestimate its versatility! These earthy tones pair effortless with a wide array of colors, from neons, to pastels, to creamy neutrals.
Here’s some military inspired TÉLIO fabrics for different seasons!
