Happy Friday everyone! Today I am sharing a new spring look with you guys (before we had a summer heatwave in NYC). We’re talking about a spring fashion trend: military green. This look has definitely topped my list of favorites for this season because it was a casual spring look but I can still wear this to a bar or other business casual event. I decided to combine a few of my favorite classics which include: dark denim, a white t-shirt, chukka boots, and a bit of military green. The jacket is from Sandro that I recently scored at a sample sale here in NYC. The color is green, which is the color of the year according to Pantone. We touched on that topic in this blog post.
Spring Fashion Trend: Military Green
Military green is one of the biggest fashion trends for this spring/summer. Not to mention the overused camouflage trend that everyone is rocking at the moment, which also features military green. As soon as I find a camouflage jacket I will definitely jump on the train. All jokes aside, this color is one of my favorites I think its a great way to wear color without actually wearing the brightest hue of that particular color. I think when guys hear “green” it’s like no way. However, a good tip is to take the muted, less intense version of your favorite color so you can wear it more frequently. Let me know if you guys want to see a post on how to wear more color in your looks!
As mentioned earlier, this has to be on of my favorite looks this season because it has some of my go to classic fashion staples in one. Also, This particular field jacket from Sandro, I have been obsessed with. Every time I wear it I get so many compliments. The details on this jacket are absolutely on point. There is velcro on the wrists so that you can tighten the sleeves without having to buckle or button which makes it easy to alter. Also, like most parka style jackets it has an adjustable loop on the inside of the jacket to tighten the waist a bit for added warmth.
The boots are the icing on the cake because they are from Robert Wayne the “Greyson” boot, which you can get here. The color is what really sold me on these, because it’s that taupe color that to me, has a bit of a green tone so I thought it will look great with this outfit. Chukka boots are another spring fashion trend essential. They usually come in tan or brown so this color is a great way to add color to your collection if you already own a pair and are looking for a second or third pair.
