My MANy Bags Trendspotting #135


Below: Military green is simply a gorgeous colour that exudes masculinity and strength. I love this combination where pure white (trousers) is matches with a colour commonly associated with the rough outdoors and adventure! I will adopt this look when I go to Tokyo... I need a pair of hiking style boots!



Below: Military green in the most unusual interpretations of fashion... in a mens' suit! But so contemporary and interesting...


Below: How about accessorising with a touch of military green. Love the grey and browns that compliments the green hue...


Below: Even a 'nerdy' look gets a lift from this masculine hue... Declan Chan from Lane Crawford...



Military Green

This is my favourite colour of all time. A hue that evokes masculinity and strength, neutral as black, but yet more interesting. Military green as mostly seen in uniforms and adventure gear makes a huge comeback to fashion since last Spring Summer 2010. I believe this colour has always transcended time and have been recurred again and again. It just happened that these past 2 seasons saw the colour take a step to the forefront of trends. Everyone has been captivated and wearing this versatile colour.

Military green matches especially well with hues from the brown and red family. Goes perfect with black or navy, and even have a unique 'rough vs. clean' effect when worn with whites. How can you not love the colour! I have so many olive green pieces in my wardrobe:-)

Here's some pictures to inspire, all accented with a touch of military green...be it from jackets, bags, trousers or even suits!

Too bad that there's certain military green I cannot be on board with because where I came from~~ I guess it's true for most of the communism countries
