Lately I have seen the uber-stylish Victoria Beckham working some slick, chic military-inspired looks and was oddly inspired by them. Considering that I am incredibly excited and in love with the SS'12 trends of print & pastels & colour, the neutral colour palette and simple shapes of VB's looks really shouldn't be sticking in my head, but they are. That woman could manage to make anything look gorgeous, but these latest ensembles really stand out from the crowd. After being so taken with her latest outfits, when I was stuck for what to wear today I decided to go Victoria-esque and opt for a bit of military chic.
Blazer - ASOS; Dress - Sparkle & Fade at Urban Outfitters; Boots - H&M; Belt, Tights & Key Ring - Primark; Heart Ring - Temporary Secretary.
I have worn this dress once before I think (shock, horror, double disaster..) but this time I styled it a little differently. I may have been influenced by VB's latest chic-n-simple looks, but this is still me.. I decided to rev up my military-green shirt dress with a pink snakeskin belt, some mini-dot tights and cute heeled ankle boots. This is still definitely erring on the understated side for me, which felt a little strange, but I liked my glam-army outfit today. I think it is the cutout detail and uber-cute collar which make this dress just interesting enough for me.
