The military look took hold in a big way on the Fall 2012 runways, and they've inspired us to shop the trend this season! Our fashion reporter Allison McNamara has already showed you how to style military pieces in this episode of Currently Trending, so today PopSugar Shop's Brandi Millloy is showing you where you can shop these exact items! The utilitarian aesthetic has been a longtime favorite, but what's catching our eye is that it's less camo and more military with polished ladylike separates. Shop these look — you know you want them in your arsenal.
I think the sales girl at Marc by Marc Jacobs wants to strangle me. I've been making weekly visits to the store to visit a certain bag, which I always ogle, but never buy.
The New Army Tote ($298) is the perfect office bag for a 20-something gal like myself. The bag has a grownup vibe, but its canvas material and utilitarian-inspired look give it a fresh, youthful feel. And, as you know, I am way into the military trend that's happening in laptop bags. At 17 inches wide it'll easily fit my MacBook Pro, and the two front pockets can stash my iPhone, camera, and other tidbits when I'm on the go.
What do you think — should I make the splurge?
