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!

Some of you may have seen that I was recently featured on standard.at, the website of an Austrian newspaper whose name should actually speak for itself. Having beaten articles about Maison Martin Margiela and exhibition openings in number of comments, I was puzzled though, when I read through the reactions. To my amusement they read like a combination of "The Sun" and "People", with some fellows even starting to fight each other. Also remarkable how many "doctors" (aka self proclaimed orthopedists) read the lifestyle section of a newspaper and are obviously worried about my heel-being. Respect for the above average knowledge about splay foot, varicose veins, Pes valgo planus- and Pes excavatus, ganglion, and other foot disabilities I've never even heard of.

So to all those worried and concerned: of course shoetation is too big (literally!), and I will never give up running in anything BUT 4 inches. Especially not when they come with the most gorgeous and delicate heel as they do today. But took precautions doing the groceries for my sister's upcoming bash and bought a walker. My new standard so to say.

Just so you know that I take my readers seriously.
