Willow Chang rocks the military look

The military trend is continuing through spring when it will segue gracefully into safari looks. The key to making military look modern, says Fashion Forum member Willow Chang, is to keep it close to the body and to pair it with sleek, simple pieces and bold accessories. Here’s how she did it:

For spring and summer, expect military styles to lighten up in color, texture and fabric. Khaki and chino will replace espresso and forest green. Cottons and linens will take the place of suede and leather.

While not everyone can look like lithe, slender Willow, one of the great things about military and safari styles is that they flatter nearly everyone. Just be sure they’re not boxy; choose body-skimming versions instead. You’ll find them at every price point, from Forever21 and Gap to Michael Kors and Chanel.
