THE BUY: Military chic

Story by Caitlin Agnew.

For Fall 2010, designers sent their troops marching down the runway—literally—in military-inspired getups. From Balmain to Burberry, never has there been an army so stylish. Crisp details and muted colours are perfect for back-to-school fall chic and also lend some much-needed structure after a summer of lace and free-flowing maxi-dresses.

Military style also allows for versatile fashion strategies. Channeling your inner Napoleon?  It’s brass buttons all the way. Take back the uniform and make it your own, mixing pieces from all eras of combat and fashion.

Here are our favourite military-inspired pieces, from $8 to $4,900, and all available in Toronto.
