Fashion Style: Are you Navy or Army?

This summer, fashion has a little air of Village People. Marine way "In the Navy" or Gi muscled in homage to "YMCA", the fashion is inspired by the uniforms for the greatest pleasure of the modeuses. What are the codes to respect? The must-have to own? What are the fashion faux-pas to avoid? Investigation of the Fashion Police!

1) At the marinière you will succumb

This spring, you'll want to feel the pompom ... But what are we talking about? Sailor, not the good-looking kid of the pub Jean paul Gaultier for his perfume Le Mâle (whatever ...) but of his uniform, the sailor. Revisited this winter by Sandro in spiked shouldered version for the evening, the sailor endlessly colonize our dressings. Sequined dress at Paul & Joe sister, lacerated at Zadig & Voltaire, registered in the back at IKKS, the sailor new look has arrived

2) Shoulders you will inflate

Enhanced shoulders, trimmings, crests or military decorations at the buttonhole, the military codes desert the battlefields for fashion evenings. And as from the podium to the street, there is only one step, the bullet hole T-shirts and the bullet belts seen at Balmain, the military medals seen at Barbara Bui have conquered fashionistas. Their motto: make fashion, not war!

3) The lattice you will forget

If in the military style, we keep the khaki slim, the coat of arms, we forget the trellis - even worse the pants worn with Doc Martens. No, no and no, fashion is not a battlefield!

4) The total look you will ban

Who says strong tendency says risk of maximum stasis. So not to regret having bought the military jacket + the slim + the khaki bag, we choose a piece, no more! And for the coolers, bet on the accessory (a camouflage belt, a small sack) ... and follow the slogan: less is more...
