Since spring of 2015, military inspired pieces have been a trend! Whether it’s an olive green military jacket, a bomber jacket, or anything army print, it’s trending.
Versace‘s army print on the runway for spring 2016 was phenomenal and the trend has continued to boom ever since. In the past olive was typically a fall and winter color only, but this year Nordstrom was carrying multiple items in olive throughout the entire spring and summer.
If a retail store is breaking the color rules, it must be a big trend. In this look, I am featuring a military jacket in the army print pattern. I decided to pair the military jacket with some super cropped black flared denim (that I got for $11!) and a black crop top with a choker.
With it being September now, I am always looking for some great transitional pieces that will flawlessly carry my wardrobe from summer to fall. Thinking about the next season is stressful to me sometimes because I always feel like I’m not prepared for the next season. But, I had to have worn something in the fall last year, right?!
What I have realized is, what’s actually stressful is when you don’t have those transitional pieces. September can be an awkward month in the midwest because August is extremely hot and then it starts to cool down a little bit in September, but not by much. Then there is Labor Day weekend…and that rule about not wearing white anymore and saying goodbye to your summer wardrobe.
I wish it was as easy as Labor Day coming and you swapping out all of your summer clothes for your fall clothes, but it’s not. There’s this whole transitioning period that needs to take place. When you’re out shopping for your fall wardrobe or looking through the items you already own, keep in mind the need for transitional items.
Great transitional items include flannels/plaid shirts, denim, lightweight jackets, long sleeve blouses, peep toe booties. This is such an important topic to me because this was something I always struggled with in the past! I’m going to follow up with another blog post around Labor Day addressing the topic in more detail. Keep an eye out for that!
