The armed forces have a certain glamour to them. Speaking for us, when we see someone in uniform, we have a sense of pride & patriotism and of course respect for the work, the sacrifices they make to ensure our lives safer! The uniform – combat colors, shoulder pads, ornate buttons, badges, laurels and medals of honor all represent honor, strength, resilience and dignity. Many of us, have memories as young girls and boys putting on a General’s hat for Halloween, or wearing a star or medal when we did well at school or sport or playing Call of Duty as a young! Cheeky Ninja confesses to playing it even well into her 30s, although she isn’t very good at it. A sense of victory and competitiveness is synonymous with the military.
Several designers have been drawing inspiration from these qualities of the armed forces and military trend in particular has been seen on runways early 2016 and on the streets all of fall through winter. We blogged about this trend and tips on how to wear it here !
When The Sewing Company by Fatema Imran sent in this olive green outfit, complete with a modern twist of shoulder cut outs, balloon arms and a high ornate neck, Sneaky Ninja was in love. Styling it simply with a pair of boots, she pays an ode to the trend. Are you on board with this trend that may be here to stay?
