We're not always big on sweeping fashion trends, but, we have to admit, the latest wave of fall military-inspired styles is pretty persuasive—if not downright unavoidable! From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Rag & Bone, the earthy palette of olive greens and burnished neutrals, along with lots of smart utility features and clean cuts is a perfect complement to all our autumn standbys. The trick to getting this global theme right, without looking like we've reinstated the draft? Choose your military accents wisely, mixing and matching between a tailored cargo skinny, broken-in combat boots, and other uncommon utilitarian extras. And for starters, check out our list of military must-haves that make our cut for fall.
