Military style in fashion originated in the 19th century when elements of military uniforms began to influence civilian clothing. While the camouflage pattern will probably first come to mind, military fashion is also designed with functionality in mind and often incorporates utilitarian details like multiple pockets and brass buttons. Structured and tailored silhouettes are a common feature as well. Military style remains a prominent and enduring trend in fashion today, paying homage to the practicality and durability of military uniforms. No need to hold your horses further, here is how you can slay in military-inspired clothing.

1. Make a Statement with Camo Print Against Neutrals

What is military fashion without camo prints? Make use of camo prints to stand out but use it sparingly to make it the highlight of your outfit. Layer with neutral colours such as black, khaki, or olive green to balance the boldness of the military patterns for a more harmonious look.
