I see military-inspired clothing everywhere these days. From the very high-end (Balmain/Balenciaga) to the more affordable (J.Crew/Ann Taylor/Forever 21), retailers are leading the military inspired clothing.
But, it seems a bit different this year. It is not all bout classic cargo pant or jacket with military details. Military look styling does NOT mean you have to look like "boy". There are a lot of feminine details in it this time.
You can see feminine details in military inspired clothing like lace and sheer fabric with draping.
In terms of silhouette, it is very fit and slim. Also, at the same time you can see oversize coats and interesting proportion.
This research inspired me to do some interesting project. It is secret, but I will update my small project, regarding of military look asap :)

Collection is characterized by hand created flowers, pastel tone color, lace and silk.
