This is Not A Drill; Military Chic is the Bomb.com

As protestors take to the street, Trump rants and “terrorist attacks”, post-depression era, where everyone embraced monochromatic tones. As we prepared for Fashion Week, designers hit the target right on the mark by showcasing their political stances or voice of reason to the amount of turmoil in the world today. I think that it is safe to say that these signature, military chic silhouettes.


As a symbol of power and patriotism, military chic brings an authoritative look to your autumn style.

This is shown in the golden details, tailored jackets, cargo pants or lots of green, khaki and black. These are just a few traditional characteristics of military chic, as there are so many ways to mix and match this style.


The idea of shopping in Army Surplus stores for this classic trend has quickly entered into mainstream fashion. Many designers have purchased store-bought army surplus, and elevated the designs to their liking, from floral pattern, botanical drawings, and studded accents. You may have noticed this military inspiration take over from runways, streetwear and sold out in multiple thrift stores. Maybe because of its versatility and appeal. This look can be paired with stripes, polos, neon accents, acid-washes, thrift goods, dresses, and sweatshirts. All of which sounds like transitional pieces for the autumn/winter season.

Here’s how you can revolt or resist with this Military Chic style.
