Army Green feat. Alexander Wang
Just like anything in fashion, everything recycles itself. And once again army green jackets have made their comeback for spring 2017’s “best trends”. While military jackets were a trend of fall 2016, StyleCaster thinks that it’s trickling its way into this spring.
Just like anything in fashion, everything recycles itself. And once again army green jackets have made their comeback for spring 2017’s “best trends”. While military jackets were a trend of fall 2016, StyleCaster thinks that it’s trickling its way into this spring. Dating back to the 1960’s, Yves Saint Laurent designed his famous pea coats, fueling a trend for military-inspired clothing and coats which was soon followed by designers including Balmain, Givenchy, and Alexander Wang.
This everlasting trend will continue to cycle itself in and out of the fashion world. Why? Because it’s functional for one thing. And, like menswear, it has a tough, androgynous appeal. Who knew something called “olive drab” could be so versatile and rich? So how do you style it for this springs’ outings? Add an accessory or two! This is something that can be dressed for a casual setting or transformed into high gear. Like anything I wear, I always look for comfort. I believe that the best way to look your utmost is to feel your utmost. Who wants to be uncomfortable for hours on end running errands? Exactly.
September 2016, Alexander Wang took his squad on spring break. The California native mixed elements of sport, tackiness, and some of his signature silhouettes for a surf-inspired collection that was commercial without lacking in personality. So if he was inspired by South Beach, then how did army green utilitarian jackets get approved for the collection? Universal. If you own what you wear, no one will ask questions.
I can’t really explain why I’ve been pairing sneakers, Adidas at that, with almost every everyday outfit – but it’s happening! I can’t get over the effortless look it gives you. It’s almost like those “no-makeup makeup” tutorials you see on YouTube that you still haven’t mastered. Except this is a little easier because all you need to do is pair your army green jacket with a basic dress, some sneakers, and of course some sort of backpack or clutch. Until next time…
