It is no secret that I am a big fan of most fashion eras gone-by.  I love the what goes around comes around repetition of trends; the ones that have existed forever yet re-emerge every few years, as fresh as the first time round, and make you rush out and re-invest all over again.  

Military style is the epitome of such a trend, and yet again is set to be huge for AW12, straight from the catwalks of Topshop Unique and stocked everywhere in the form of khaki throw-ons, camouflage knits and the ultimate parka.

And as with so many before, I said I'd never wear it again.  The memories of my young self, clomping around in baggy combats are still so fresh and almost too painful to bear; it's best we forget the Spice Girls Movie that spurned an army ('scuse the pun) of tween girls clad in baggy khaki trousers and killer heels.  But I am obsessed with my new Topshop military jacket, and when it looks so damn good, how can I say no?

  1. Ooooh nice edit. I have the Topshop sleeveless tee and the parka next to it is just like the Isabel Marant - what a bargain! xxx
