Music festival inspiration breathes easygoing attitude into Diesel’s key military looks. Classic military wear of army green parkas and jackets are contrasted against patterned fabrics and soft shapes. They top long lace or tulle slip dresses, or are layered over washed cotton shirts and vivid striped, marled and leopard knits in cozy brushed mohair or alpaca. Floral and check shirts come patch-worked or in edgy constructions, like a men’s design which features one checked fabric in a vest over a shirt made from a diverse check. Military uniforms lend structure and clean lines to outwear: officer style black wool coats with gold buttons down bombers and hooded jackets with fur trims. Dresses, one long-sleeved in boiled wool, the other a sleeveless shirt dress in army green cotton show the diverse sides of formal and casual military wear. Insignia resembling military rankings, and multiple patches and tabs on boiled wool bombers, hooded sweatshirts, and as jacquard designs in fine wool and cashmere blend knits create Diesel’s own army.

IMG_1058For my final look centered around my Diesel boyfriend jeans, pays homage to Diesel’s FW 2014 military trend. Of course, staying true to form no outfit is complete without a back story. So, today’s ensemble as I am sure you may have guessed by the obvious army green jacket and aviators, was inspired by Top gun the 1980’s pilot movie starring Tom Cruise. When I think about military fashion I somehow always go back to an image of Tom Cruise (Maverick) in army green and Ray-Bans.
