Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, stylist, fashion designer, and creator of The Zoe Report. This week Rachel shares her military style picks.
Spotted on the runways, on the streets, and all over fashion blogs, the military-inspired style is undeniably a major trend this Fall. With so many service-ready pieces to choose from — chunky green jackets, cargo pants, and even khaki nail polish — it is beyond easy to work the look into your wardrobe. However, keep in mind to only rock one to two pieces of militia gear at a time, because suiting up head to toe isn't so chic. Now, there are a few different ways to take on the trend, but I'd start with an army jacket or vest. Choose a style with a cinched or belted waist and think of it as a substitute for your black blazer to be worn with a feminine dress or jeans and a tee. Next, pick out a flattering pair of skinny cargo pants. A new twist on the skinny jean, the extra detailing makes the style a go-to look for Fall. Concerning footwear, I love the look of tough girl booties to transition you into Fall. Find a pair that lace up or with buckles and wear them with your favorite skirt and thick socks. Last but not least, it all comes down to the details with a khaki mani — as mentioned in The Zoe Report — and a glam sequin handbag to keep your overall aesthetic very fashion forward. xoRZ
