Street style: greyed out with denim

Given the dominance of the denim military jacket in this look I was quick to overlook it. Such a military fashion trend piece is, after all, nothing new (follow the link to find out the military style that’s replaced it for 2010). But look again and there’s a pairing that we’re beginning to see with increasing frequency: the military and sports trends.

Military street style

With a mini skirt and heels this particular fusion of military and sports isn’t as obvious as the last time we saw such an interpretation. And while that added to my original instinct to flick past this look, that instinct was wrong. The use of jersey fabric and sporty greys provides the perfect subtle layering to a much more dominant jacket.

With the pairing of sports and military looks growing in 2010 it would be well worth taking the time to polish up on the military and sports trends if you haven’t already.
