Love the military trend you saw on the runways, but not sure how to pull it off? We show you how with these foolproof tips for rocking military green and orange.

We spotted these two hot colors all over the fall 2013 runways — everyone from Prabal Gurung to Phillip Lim showcased cool army-inspired coats, dresses and separates in their collections! Even celebrities like Jessica Szohr have started rocking the trend. The best part about this color combo? You can wear it anywhere! Whether you're in the office or hanging out on the weekend. Here's how to style these hues for work and play.


For the office

You don't want to be too loud at the office, so opt for a subtle green blazer with classic trousers and a blouse. A pair of chic black pumps and a sophisticated orange tote completes this work-ready look.
