How to wear military green

How to wear military green. Military green was elected one of the ugliest colours in the world (we’re referring to colour Pantone 448 in particular, a mix between green and brown..). Yet it’s quite in style, and if paired with the right colours, it can also be very chic and help you transition stylishly from day to night. You need to take the just precautions to find the best pairings. I prepared a gallery with 10 military green looks that you can take inspiration from and copy, each one more beautiful than the next. In the meantime, here are some ideas on how to wear military green.

 

How to wear military green: military green look ideas taking you from day to night!

– WITH BLACK: The most frequent pairing is most probably with black. Try pairing a military green blouse with a black leather mini skirt, black accessories and booties.
– GREEN ON GREEN: another chic look, especially if you choose to add brightening accessories or tone on tone sequin detailing, is the green on green pairing. If you’re not too sure about this look, break it up with a few hints of black.
– WITH BROWN / LEATHER: a chic pairing that sees military green paired with brown, whether a leathery shade or a darker one.
– WITH WHITE: Pairing a military green piece (a pair of pants, a skirt or a parka) with white is always a great idea!

Personalizing your jeans: ideas to customize your denim at home!

Personalizing your jeans!

Personalizing your jeans.  Now more than ever before the words PERSONALIZE or CUSTOMIZE have become part of our vocabulary. Differentiating oneself is at the frontier of fashion, and it’s all about not conforming and having pieces in your closet that are not only unique but that help you affirm your uniqueness and distinguish yourself. This is how the trend of personalizing clothing was born, especially with denim. Why personalize your jeans? Because with jeans you have free reign, because jeans are easy to personalize, because it’s rather frequent to have a few extra pairs in your closet and therefore you aren’t taking that big of a risk personalizing and working on them.. Isn’t that true? To follow the latest trends in denim, I gathered some pictures – examples of the season’s coolest pieces, that you can easily recreate at home with a little bit of manual work. What do you need? Fabric glue, pens for fabric, patches, pieces of cloth, little pearls, sequins.. and a lot of creativity!

Need more specific ideas as to how to personalize your jeans?
– WRITE YOUR NAME OR A QUOTE ON THE BACK: with an indelible fabric marker.
– LOOK FOR THE COOLEST PATCHES AT THE FLEE MARKET: and create something on the sleeves, chest or back.. or on the leg of the pants! Don’t be afraid to use them abundantly!
– OPT FOR LITTLE PEARLS AND SEQUINS: this is a bit more complicated given that these need to be sewn on, but the result is beautiful!
– SCRAPS OF FABRIC (EVEN DENIM ON DENIM): cut scraps of colourful fabric from old clothing you no longer wear or from different coloured jeans and create a patchwork on your pants or jean jacket ;)

MILITARY JACKET

As we saw in THIS post, the military trend is super strong at the moment. Out of all military style clothing, the chicest and most versatile option (not to mention super on trend this season) is without a doubt the military jacket. These structured jackets with rigid shoulders are usually adorned with golden buttons and braiding: they can be short as seen at Gucci, where it was paired with skinny jeans and a round toe pump, red and paired with a skirt that hits below the knee and a round toe pump as seen at Dolce and Gabbana, or in a more precious style in white with buttons, gold braiding and fur trimming as seen at Ermanno Scervino, or paired with skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots as seen at Elisabetta Franchi.

Military Style: we’re talking about military green accessories, very high-waisted pants with large buttons but especially about structured jackets with rigid shoulders, golden buttons and toggles.
Skirt with frills: the A-line skirt is back in style. It is THE skirt to have this season (also because it highlights the waist and hides those few extra pounds!)
