Khaki with a feminine edge

Khaki and combat gear haven’t really been in the spotlight much since that stage in the 90s where it was cool to rock a pair of baggy camouflage pants with stone-hard abs and a sports bra. Thankfully there’s a much more elegant way to work army garb into your wardrobe in 2010. It’s an evolution of military and tied in part to the tomboyish utility looks of the sportswear trend.

This shoot in Elle Canada has some prime examples of how to put it all together: khaki shorts with a crisp white shirt; neutral colours and raw fabrics; man style army green ankle socks under heels. Of course the glammed-up peroxide blonde hair helps too.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
