I’ve never been a huge fan of the military look – it seems to come around every single summer as one of those trends that magazine editors and designers know will work for those girls who aren’t into flowy frocks and more girly styles.
As I’m pretty girly in what I’m drawn to, I usually find safari wear and khaki a little on the boring side! That’s why I was surprised to come across this shoot from Elle US by Richard Bush and absolutely love how they’ve managed to make the army romantic. It’s more like Ashley Smith has been stuck on a desert island for months, and has made outfits out of clothes washed up on the beach.
I love the washed out, soft colours and the neutral accessories…
I personally will always draw the line at camo print, but when you see it paired with short shorts it starts to actually look pretty cute!
