One of the casual looks I love, a military type ensemble. I have been collecting separate pieces since college that lend themselves to a faux military look.
Here is a look that most in the area associate with me because I don this outfit often- when running errands. It is a brown suede blazer and real military pants-- my sister gave me. She is a federal officer.
This black sweater with buckle closures, heavy brown- side closure sweater [Syracuse find], or this black heavy wool zip up sweater are other examples.
Here are some items I could add to my light outer-ware collection:
My collection of casual lace up boots.
I think I should add a style with more length to the boot. I looked at these [also shown a similar shorter boot length] and a brown [comes in black too] Steve Madden:
I also love these. Military? Okay, maybe not but I love them anyway. They come in tan and black. I like the non flap look in this bootie because I think it will be easier to pair with dress slacks-- as well as jeans. By the way-- do some comparison shopping on these. Currently [thru- Aug. 4th 2013] a great price on these--- with the following link.
Two jackets currently in my closet- with a military flair.
I can remember where I purchased most of my clothes-- however for some reason the bomber jacket on the left-- totally escapes my mind.. think it was Georgetown...
I also like this Parka and Jack Spade Unisex Watch...
The Kenneth Cole Watch I recently purchased, goes with a lot of the items I already have. The band is dark brown and even though a man's watch- works well with my outfits.
