Hey there Pretty Birds,

As you know we’re big fans of military-inspired style, Tamu always talks about her love for the green and I can’t live without my now vintage Zadig&Voltaire menswear military shirt. And we’re so thrilled that designers consistently look to this iconic style for inspiration, case in point: Isabel Marant, Margaret Howell, Balmain and Fendi for F/W 14-15. Plus our favorite girls provide us a fighter-jet load of  chic and cool ways to wear the look. So for your combat pleasure, we’ve put together this special post which includes a gallery of our favorite looks from the street, a focus on Sarah Chavez’s military style during Paris Fashion week, and a shopping gallery of the best military-inspired pieces. Be fierce!

Sarah Chavez, one of our favorite street style muses, wore military inspired looks all through Paris Fashion Week, last October. *** We reached out to the NYC based stylist to ask her about her armed-forces-fashion-week mood and here’s what she shared: “This last fashion week I felt like pulling out some of my favorite pieces from Junya Watanabe, like my cropped flight bomber from AW2006. I’ve always gravitated towards military inspired pieces and I think Junya does it best. I like the idea of being in uniform…there’s a toughness that is really bold and I think that’s cool. Plus army green is one of my favorite colors :).” ***
