Military Minute: Military Color Palette 2015

Ten-hut! From the runways to affordable women’s outerwear, the military trend is taking over 2015! Everyone knows that camo print is synonymous with military inspired clothing. However if you’d prefer to take a more subtle approach to take on this trend into your casual street wear- the secret lies in using a military color palette! Think- olive, khaki, leather accents, etc. The subdued nature of this palette makes it ultra convenient and compatible with other statement items thus opening up the door for endless looks!

Feminine Military Fashion

For a feminine take on the military trend, try pairing your outerwear with a mini hemline to show off more skin! Pair with your favorite pointed-toe pumps for the ultimate cosmo girl meets rough and tumble look. Not to mention, the pumps and mini skirt combo will elongate your legs, making them look fabulous! As for your top, soften up this look by pairing the look with textures such as lace or silk. These ladylike fabrics will balance the structured cut of military outerwear. Top off your outfit with dainty accessories such as a skinny belt, or metallic jewelry for that perfect put-together touch.

Dress Up with Lace Up

What trend is playful, alluring, and feminine all at once? The lace up trend, of course! Lace up has been seen on almost all articles of clothing such as peasant tops, corset dresses and even on affordable women’s shoes! Spotted on both the runways and on celebrities, you too can get in on the trend. With so many options, the sky’s the limit.

Lace Up Tops

Lace up tops are not only the perfect boho chic go to but are also surprisingly sexy! Kim Kardashian knows this trend all too well as she has been spotted in lace up heels, lace up bodices, dresses, etc. She is the queen of lace up! If a front lace up top like Kim K is a bit too risqué for your taste, there is definitely a lot more where that came from! Opt for a lace up back if too much cleavage is what worries you. Paired with sleek hair and dramatic makeup, you cannot lose with this look!

Lace Up Dresses

If you’re feeling bold and are a fan of daring dresses such as Gwenyth Paltrow, lace up dresses might just be for you! Rocking a lace up dress would most definitely be taking this trend up a notch but if you want to add more fuel to the fire, pair your strappy dress with your favorite stilettos! Alternatively, if you’re going for a more laid back peasant inspired lace up dress, try pairing this easygoing look with flat knee high boots with lace over the knee high socks or for the hotter days, knee high gladiator sandals!

Lace Up Shoes

Last but not least, if you want to sneak in the lace up trend with many different outfits this season, go with none other than lace up heels! As seen on numerous celebrities such as Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo! With these heels, the possibilities are endless. For a casual yet modern look, go for a bright heel and pair them with your favorite jeans, a roll up blouse, and a messenger or cross body bag, and you’ve easily got yourself a chic yet casual ensemble. Nothing says “calm, cool, collected” better than this classic outfit! Alternatively, for a feminine and polished look, opt for a full midi skirt with a short sleeve blouse tucked in. Topped off with a clutch and a few metallic accents, you’ll feel like you’re strolling along the streets of Milan during fashion week! Next time you’re browsing through trendy women’s clothing, remember that you cannot go wrong with lace up shoes!
