Back It Up

-------

It may not be vacation season just yet, but it’s never too early to start strategizing. Where to go, what to pack, what to pack it in? Since backpacks have popped up on runways from Alexander Wang to Chanel the last few seasons, we recommend forgoing your typical duffel in favor of a sporty rucksack. This one from Marc by Marc Jacobs has a very now utilitarian feel, not to mention several handy pockets for stowing your TSA-approved necessities. Click the image to shop.

La Fille du Regiment

-------


Does it seem like every other girl you see is bedecked in head-to-toe military paraphernalia this spring? If you’ve been avoiding the über-trend for that very reason, allow us to introduce you to this darling jacket from Rachel Rachel Roy. The clipped collar and epaulets give the topper a distinct martial vibe, but the ladylike cut and classic check pattern keep it firmly out of base camp territory. Best of all, at only $129, it’s a great way to channel your inner Private Benjamin without sacrificing your bank account. Click the image to shop.

Reporting For Duty

-------

Military dressing is one of Spring’s biggest trends, but while we enjoy a good utility pocket as much as the next girl, cargo pants aren’t exactly appropriate for every occasion. This Roland Mouret knit skirt has the season’s must-have olive-drab hue, but the real selling point is its sexy-yet-office-appropriate cut. Call it fatigues fabulous. Click the image to shop.

Napoleon Dynamite

-------


Military jackets are everywhere this season. From high end to the high street, it’s hard to find a topper that isn’t bedecked with utility pockets or epaulets. Rag & Bone‘s Napoleon coat is a great way to experiment with the trend without going overboard. The long panel unzips on the hem so you get a stylish double-breasted coat and jacket for the price of one; and once the clamor for all things army dies down, you’ll be left with a jaunty, and timeless, tweed jacket.

First Place

Combining trends doesn’t always work (see: jeggings), but sometimes the elements come together in perfect harmony. Richard Nicoll‘s structured minidress gives you two Spring trends for the price of one. The boned and molded bodice is in line with the exposed lingerie look, while the ribbon sash suggests military without being obvious. We recommend pairing it with upswept hair and minimal jewelry for a refined cocktail look. Click the image to shop.
