OLIVE is the New Black : Military Fashion Trending

💁‍♀️HOLA Peeps ‼

ℹI’m back with another blog post. This time its a 💅 Fashion blog post and the topic under my scanner is “Military Fashion” ‼

Call it ‘Khaki’, ‘Olive’, ‘Camouflage’ or ‘Military’, Its one timeless trend that’s here to stay.!

ℹ have never been one to follow the dictats of fashion trends or to bind fashion into yearly ,seasonal changing themes or to follow the herd. I have always listened to what my heart and instincts wanted me to buy, design or create and to wear anything that my heart takes fancy to, at any given occasion in my life. Never have I felt conscious or uncomfortable to go in complete opposite to trending tastes of the season!


🔷However, Even I could not deny or ignore the influence and impact of “Military Fashion” on the Fashion scene ! Nationally and worldwide‼

Olive is the New BLACK
Around the globe military trends!!

⭕live Fashion has been in vogue as long as 1960’s or so. Whether its the camouflage prints, tough parkas, pea coats, trench coats, or the ceremonial dresses, dinner jackets swagger with brass buttons, pockets on chest and hips  and stripes, leather trimmings plus embellishments and metallic buckles and tan belts; nautical wide legged trousers, The Cartier Tank Watches; The Welligton Boots; The neck scarves or Cravate; dungarees or plain  powerful, summer cool, robust khaki’s; Militaria influence is unmistakable and everywhere around the globe; from raw, rugged street styles; thrift-stores to luxury fashion houses of paris; or runway’s of the world! Its presence cannot be ignored.

From celebrated  designers worldwide like Yves Saint Lauren, Givenchy, Balmian etc and fashion scene closer home, everyone’s clothing line atleast once created something  military-inspired and the process would be, and still is, cyclical.

🅾live fashion has invaded and carved a niche in the fashion world, It began influencing the fashion scene with hippie style cargo pants and army jackets and then came the parkas and over sized military coats, igniting a trend that added an air of  power, intellect and sophistication‼

Not only clothing but even, accessories, like eye wear, watches, belts & bags and boots took to military inspiration. Who can forget TomFord’s Aviator Sunglasses, or super cool “Italian World War II Naval Submarine Watch “, a trademarkBelt Forces” fashion, almost a tradition followed till date❗

🅰lso, Louis Vuitton handbags and luggage cases have unmistakable military  camouflage, army green or cargo inspiration.

Ⓜilitary fashion due to its earthy, palette of olive greens, grey’s, dark navy blue’s, burnished neutrals and khaki, beiges, browns and rugged, comfortable fabrics, clean cuts is a very utilitarian fashion, perfect for autumn classics but now rules almost every season. But thereal factor that highlights the military style is its practical side; more pockets, baagy style, rugged, comfy fabric, clean cuts and shapes for everyone, layering, neutral tones to match most silhouettes.

For quite some time this power packed trend remained in a very masculine zone and feminine side never much experimented with it. But from around 2008, we witness a massive wave and experimentation in this arena. Also, Militaria not only remained casual, streetstyle but entered the formal and classic fashion too, so much so that current scene is replete with military inspired fitness gears, gym clothing and athleisure wear lead by brands like Nike http://www.nike.com, Adidas http://www.adidas.com , Zivame http://www.zivame.cometc

〽any Unisex clothing articles and accessories saw their advent and apart from typical men’s cargo pants, camou jackets, trench coats, tan boots and metallic belts. Feminine fashion too saw comfort and power in military fashion and took fancy to it. As a result, we see a lot of khaki pants, shirts, tees, fitted dresses, backpacks, eyewear, boots, fishtail parkas, metallic chains, chokers and buttons, camou hoodies, shrugs, spahgetti tops, skirts, shorts and what not❗

🅰 woman adorning this trend  believe it not, is sending a message across: of Power, of being comfortable in self and of being the sole authority on self but definitely a raw elegance and don’t mess with me attitude‼

ℹhave a comfy, cozy and special place for it in my life and my wardrobe. Its one trend I welcome with open arms! I truly and madly am in love with this one and its for here to stay.

ℹ truly believe what we choose to wear, what we pick up while shopping all transcends from what we feel about a certain style, fabric or hue, what aura a garment carries for us in our lives. Knowingly, and unknowingly we choose what we feel and behave.


🤷‍♀️Dressing up for me has always been a language; my clothes always convey my approach, my personality and my confidence in my life. Hence, fashion for me is the expression of my persona. May not be so for everyone, and I’m certainly not conveying that a person should be judged by his clothes; but neither can we deny that it does help us in creating an image.

Ⓜy love❤affair with “OG’z ” started way to early, as a school kid, at home watching my parents donning the Olive hues and camouflage uniforms (needless to say I’m a true Blue Fauji Brat).


Watching my Mom and Dad donning their uniforms, brought a kind of reverence to the pattern, shade and hue. It kind of attained a dignity and sense of 🅿ride and 🅿ower. How handsome and dignified they both looked!! I often dreamt of wearing “camous” and “OG” boots;  and saving this world and mankind. It would almost give a 💪superhero vibe to me and I would wear my father’s boots and hold his stick and act like one😛.

 

My Militaria !!

☛Teenage years saw me experimenting with my parents’ discarded, outlived uniforms, trying to make something fashionable out of them. The military boots started fitting me and I often paired them with short dresses and skirts or denims. Especially, when the trend of ankle boots raged the fashion scene post movie “Rangeela” and the song “Yai re yai re” in which actress Urmila’s short dress and boots became the rave of those times. I saw lot many girls following the trend.


Grown up years saw a prominence in the military taste, watching my brother grow into this handsome, sophisticated, gentleman officer looking so dapper in his Olive greens, 🕶Aviators, 👞Wellington boots and ⌚Nautical watches brought so much awesomeness and fascination to me that my love of  militaria became a serious affair.

🅰nd it so happened that I found love, with a persona who donned yet another hue of militaria. “This was destined to be”….  I seamlessly fell in love with earthy blues and pastel white tones of militaria, the dungarees, the white pintex, crisp ruffled shirts, ceremonial dinner jackets  with brass buttons and stripes and the 👒bow-ties. And the love  between me and the military fashion remains rock solid till date.

Hence, truly in my case my life’s reflections run true in the nuances of my clothing styles. I wear my pride and my life.


So, you see how important it was for me to write an ode to this gorgeous fashion that has my ❤ heart.

🅰nd all that I wrote above was to tell you how and perhaps, why I’m so taken in by this perennial fashion trend. But now I talk about what fun it is to style and wear this trend on different occasions.

In love with Military Olive Fashion!

😎STYLING MY MILITARY WARDROBE :

ℹ have heard many people saying that olive fashion doesn’t gel with other clothings and is difficult to match with and hence, boring or not multipurpose or diverse. But i have quite the opposite views, thoroughly enjoy styling the military clothing and love elevating the looks with accessories and mix-n-match too.

Here, i bring to you some military inspired street style, casual chic, sportyand casual evening drink looks. I have collaborated with my in house male models who share the same olive fetish as me @Tilak👤 Instagram Account , @Nik👤 Instagram Account to showcase some men’s military fashion too!
