Shop the fall trend: Military chic

Sep 18, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. ET

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.

Furla Candy Camo Rubber Satchel $278,

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.
