Military styling is a force to be reckoned with this season.
Just when you thought it was safe to finally pack away your combat pants they are back again - along with khaki tees and military-style boots.
All well and good if you are standing at ease but if you want something smarter look out for shiny gold buttons, braiding and epaulettes.
Opt for utility jackets, military-style shirts to team with jeans, button-thru’ dresses and the ever-present waistcoat.
Even camouflage is back on the scene - just remember that less is more. You don’t want to look as though you are on manoeuvres.
If you’re wondering how to make it more feminine think Cheryl Cole in her video for Fight For This Love or Rihanna’s video for Hard. Or add a few sequins.
