Military Revamped for Spring/Summer 2011 Peplum Military Jacket by South, Jane Leather Boots by Bench, Sleeveless Slinky Pin Tuck Dress by South

The military trend is back and making its mark this season. This trend has been hanging around for quite a while and is bigger than ever this summer and could not be easier to pull together. In its simplest form the army look is all about teaming khaki with a range of colours including bold red and accents like animal print.

As usual is right there with the hottest of this season’s trends and has a variety of items to help everyone, no matter their size, shape or budget, be bang on trend this season. The quintessential item for the army look has to be the military style jacket and a stunning offering of this comes from South. Their Peplum Military Jacket comes in a gorgeously soft mink or bizarre sounding petrol-blue (a far nicer colour than it sounds!), this double-breasted jacket has button detailing down the front as well as a button tab on the collar. There is also a delightful button detail on the sleeves with deep cups.

Another must have for the military look is the sturdy boot, proving that footwear can be comfy and practical as well as high fashion! Bench offers the stunning Jane Leather boots in distressed leather for an authentic ‘trail through the desert’ worn look. Combine this with khaki trousers and a strap top and anyone would wonder how someone so stylish can have made it out of the army base.

For a slightly more feminine twist on the army trend there is the gorgeously seductive sleeveless slinky pin tuck dress, a must have for this summer. Made with a light and soft fabric this dress is delightfully carefree and a classic number. Add a pair of killer heels and a tailored military jacket to get that army look for the evening.

All of these items and many more can be found at, the home of online fashion, with jewellery, bags, shoes and much more to complement any outfit.
