While army pants and flip flops may not be the first thing we see down the runway this year, military-inspired shades of color are! With the weather getting nicer, we’ve started to see a tremendous increase in brown, tan and olive green colors. I mean, who DOESN’T love that color palette? I know I do. Today’s fashion friday is designated to helping you maintain top ranks in the style standings without pulling a full on Cady Heron.
This dress from Target is the perfect example of how to easily incorporate this season’s hot colors into your wardrobe. It is lightweight and breathable, it follows our military-inspired color scheme, and it’s only $28! Compared to some of the pieces walking down the designer’s runways (not that we don’t consider them drool worthy), who said you have to pay a million bucks to look like it?!
You can also incorporate the colors using your accessories or big statement pieces of an outfit. I am not against wearing a well-placed scarf during the summer as long as it is a light fabric. WELL-PLACED is the key word, it has to completely make the outfit or you might as well not even step out of the house wearing it. Believe it or not, with how easy they are to add, they can really look like you’re trying too hard! DO YOU HEAR ME SOLDIER?!
Over and out, troops…
