Customised Military Jacket

5 Feb

DSC_0080I know it has been a while! I’m currently in final year at university so life has been a bit hectic!

So this Christmas I was lucky enough to spend my time in Asia and therefore got to indulge in shopping and bargain hunting in Bangkok and Singapore! My favourites places were the little malls where the shops are simply called ‘The 200 Baht shop’ or ‘The 300 Baht Shop’.

(200 Baht works out at about £4!)

DSC_0086I picked up this military style jacket in a store where everything was uniquely customised. I think it would be pretty easy to make one yourself and customise one of your own jackets, as long as you can get your hands on a length of fringing from a fabric shop!

For my take on the military trend I paired the camo jacket with Topshop embellished jeans, a black roll neck, chunky boots and I added a hat purely because it is SO windy!

Military

When wearing this trend think army uniform with a feminine twist by adding textures of leather and lace.  Finish with a chunky boot for the daytime or a black stiletto for the evening. Below are some of my favourites pieces on the high street at the moment.

Enjoy!
