How to: The Military trend

How to: The Military trend

Read more...

Last week when picking up a friend from the airport (working huge black sunglasses and a Starbucks- mug only, it was wayyyyyyy to early) I spotted a guy in a full spring/summer-trend outfit. Excited and still half asleep, I kicked BF and whispered: “Look, that’s how you work the military trend!”. Needless to say that I pointed out at a soldier in his uniform who picked up his fiancé (my fashion brain totally tricked me) but what can I say: THIS GEAR IS HOT. Even hotter as it’s not only sported for survival reasons (*hut* hut* hut* through the mud) but on every runway this spring too.

Back home and fully awake now it gave inspiration enough to dive into my closet and get carried away by camouflage prints, muddy greens, and earthy hues. Now you have a reason to cherish chunky boots, rough knits and work all of it “tone on tone”. Key essentials for the look: pockets everywhere (to store lipstick, mirrors, diaries, scented candles and whatever we carry around), heavy belts, laced shoes and of course the inevitable navy-pattern. You probably all have the key items in your wardrobe already, so feel free to get spirited up & fire away (no pun intended) with my guide above. For all the others I can recommend a visit to your local army store: hot dudes spotting all included.

HAVE FUN!

Too Much Testosterone

Too Much Testosterone

Despite the fashionable influence of my grandmother (aka her vintage wardrobe), mother (a couture dressmaker) and my cousins’ impeccable wardrobe, I pretty much grew up in tomboy style. It was my friends who had the Barbie dolls and other plastic friends, I could usually be found outside in the mud somewhere, playing cowboys and Indians, building tree houses and hunting for snails (their shells make pretty good necklaces), leaves (fascinating inspiration for autumn fashion) and squirrels (fur collar anyone? ...haha...just kidding).

So I was more than happy to go back to my roots and play with my four nephews all day long: racing cars and playing hide and seek. Pretending to be Yedi knights is our favorite (am Obi-Wan Kenobi, the character of Princess Leah is left to my second nephew *sigh* - that’s pretty much history repeating itself though...). After a long day out hunting for snails and collecting leaves (left out the squirrels, wouldn’t want to give them any stupid ideas), we would snuggle up on the couch and watch Barbapapa instead of E!- and AH!: love my little men powers!

It was only today that I realized that I have probably enjoyed a little too much Testosterone the past days. Am wearing brogues! Glad that the “boy-shoe” (after boyfriend jeans and man shirt) was just chosen by InStyle to be the hottest piece this fall. Would have had to have a serious word with my nephews otherwise.
