How to master the Military look.
You know what I have been missing all Winter? Leather! And it's ability to create the most amazing tough girl vibes. If you read Cranberry Tantrums often enough, you would know by now that I am a huge sucker for the militaristic trend (posts here). Military inspired pieces craftily mastered by huge designers like Balmain, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfigher are essentially a tough girl's dream come true. Structured silhouettes, epaulettes, gold embroidery and gold buttons are features would find in a piece. Now add leather, and the ensemble looks like something Lara Croft would wear. If you don't know who that is, I suggest a review of Angelina Jolie's major hits.
However, since I am not balling like the real Angelina Jolie, I am always on the look out for affordable militaristic pieces like this jacket from Zaful (go one size up).
So don't know what to wear with that cool gold embroidered or gold buttoned coat like this gorgeous (and affordable piece from Zaful) , grab a pair of leather pants, would ya!
