These armored fashions are fierce--in a Roman gladiator sort of way. From jeans with armored knees to jeweled headgear that looks like a knight's helmet, protecting your vital organs has never looked so good.
Not all of these armored fashions channel the medieval era, however. Next-gen bulletproof vests and body armor used in the military are also included in this cluster.
Implications - Knight in shining armor takes it to a whole other level with this interesting fashion trend. Although this trend is different, I can't see armored clothes being very comfortable. Since many people prefer clothing that they can easily move around in, I don't think that this trend will have a very long shelf life.
