Military

Military style coats, dresses and boots are never really out but their heavy materials, dark color palette and structured silhouettes make them especially suited for fall. Olive greens and blacks would look great with nudes or pale pinks any time of year but, for a fresh take this fall, try them with primary colors like cobalt blue, bright red or yellow.

I’d balance the structure and masculinity of this style with something softer and more organic, like floral prints, lace or sequins, a classically feminine piece like a shift dress, and plenty of jewelry.
