These days, the concept of “uniform dressing” are being reapplied to jeans, tees, and white sneakers, like the designers are presenting us the military uniform, thus we saw some military jackets in the latest fashion shows. It’s been influencing fashion at least since the ’60s, when John Lennon wore a M-65 and Yves Saint Laurent introduced his iconic Saharienne jacket.
The difference between the military jackets we saw this season and before is that this time they seem not inspired by modern army surplus store, but 18th-century Britain and France military uniform. They are crisp, strong-shouldered, and often decorated with rope trim, brass buttons, epaulettes, and a few modern add-ons like crystals and bows. What we can see from the fashion shows lately is that military jackets are really gonna be a big outerwear trend this fall.
