I’M BACK PEOPLE! Yes yes yes, I’ve been missing in action for almost two weeks now. Where have I been? I was held captive by my apartment and submerged in way too many boxes. I will discuss that more next week and hopefully have a few pictures of the new residence for you. Anyway…
Is it me or has mother nature been teasing us this spring season? She’s been so darn fickle. Here in NYC, one day it’s 70 degrees and the next it’s 45 degrees, drizzling, gloomy and down right chilly. That being said, how does one handle this erratic weather in terms of personal style? You make certain to keep your fall layering pieces within reach.
One of my favorite layering pieces, regardless of the season is my military jacket.
I believe it was Marc Jacobs who was quoted during the S/S 2015 runway show as saying, “military clothes are part of the fashion vernacular these days”. The man speaks the truth.
Take a moment, allow your thoughts to travel back in fashion history. Who and/or what gave this look legs? Such a dizzying evolution don’t you think. From an institutional emblem to a jacket that was worn by those clashing with the institution. Think of John and Yoko in their matching military surplus. And lets not forget Jane Fonda, she donned the utilitarian topper for antiwar rallies. Do you think these three icons knew their message would trickle down to the fashion world?
