Monday, May 17, 2010

The military look has been making its rounds for a while now - but recently it's been more grunge than polished.

I love Victoria Beckham's olive pants in this picture!

Rachel McAdams wore this military inspired jacket a loooong time ago - she's the reason I started noticing this trend in the first place! Doesn't she look amazing?

So I Googled around - and found a few "How to Wear Military" tips from the stars:

1) Pair your military piece with a pastel, silk, or floral top or scarf - this softens your look
2) Neutrals go amazingly well with military pieces - so more nudes, please!
3) If you are wearing a military jacket, try cinching it at the waist with a dark brown belt the way Olivia Palermo does - it looks amazing!
