Fall fashion

It's time to head to the trenches! Okay... not really, but it's definitely time to rock something army-chic! Designers like Rachel Roy, Prabal Gurung and Michael Kors incorporated military elements into their fall shows — everything from structured coats to killer camo bags. Want to test out this look? Join us as we shop the super hot trend.
Fall fashion

In order to avoid looking like an actual soldier, make sure you incorporate only a few army-inspired elements into your ensemble. For example, no need to mix an olive military coat with a bold camo-printed hat or bag. Just choose one or the other to make a total statement.

The best part about this trend? It works for both the office and the weekend. Here's how we would style a cool camo satchel for both situations.

For the office

In order to really highlight the bag, go with a neutral outfit. A monochromatic suit paired with a classic white button-down and a pair of black pumps is all you need to embody the military trend.
