Let's face it, the army trend has been around for years and it isn't going anywhere anytime soon and to be honest, we're kinda obsessed with it. In 2016, this military style has been polished and glammed up and down to create a major impact in any fashionista's closet. It is also one of the easiest looks to do and what’s great about it, is its incredible versatility: from day to night, from teenager to mother, it works for everyone. This week, we had the pleasure of having handmade jewelry designer, Kim Ducherer from Farm Wife Style to rock three army inspired outfits that will have you just as obsessed with this trend as we are.
A Vest to Impress
Vests are making a big mark this season. They're ideal for your spring and summer wardrobe because of their versatility. This Sanctuary 'Courier Vest' is full of print, texture and fabulousness. Paired with Bobi Black's 'Tapered Pant', this look is a perfect casual weekend outfit for your busy weekends that require comfort--in a stylish way.

Army Pants and Flip Flops
"One time I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops. So I bought army pants and flip flops."
Here's our revamped version of the Mean Girls' army pants and flip flops look. Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron) was very 2004 with her outfit of choice and when it comes to 2016, it's all about joggers.

This Coat Means Business
Army coats were all the rage in the 90s and surprise surprise they came back in a big way in the last few years. It's all about colour and army green is one of our favourite colours to work with because it can be paired with both your darks and whites.
