Soldier Style

Military-inspired fashions let consumers express their combative sides

Implications - For several seasons now, fashion has had a love affair with military-inspired style. Although tough, soldier-worthy jackets, boots and more rugged, rough-and-tumble styles were once viewed as too masculine for women and not slick enough for men, they are now being embraced by serious fashionistas as well as more mainstream consumers. This style direction seems indicative of a growing combative attitude among consumers and has applications not only fashion, but in art, furniture, home design, marketing and more.
