FINAL TOUCH: REAL TROOPERS
It seems that 2015 will be marked as the year we said goodbye to strict (and out-dated) gender codes. From the physical transformations of Caitlyn Jenner and Andreja Pejic to stores like Selfridges and Target saying goodbye to gender-specific merchandising, these days we’re all about blurring the lines of identity, and of course that includes all matters of personal style.
Put your own unique spin on the runway-favourite utilitarian look that’s been appropriated by everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Marc Jacobs. Comfortable and easy-to-wear, cargo pieces need never look schleppy (unless you want them to) with an on-trend approach to styling. To keep this menswear-inspired style looking fresh, consider mixing up different proportions and colours, like high-rise black skinny jeans with an oversized safari-inspired jacket. Neutral khakis and green provide an old-school army allure that’s balanced out by a ladylike handbag, while a striped crop-top adds a hint of subversive femininity.
And for the finishing touch, the thigh-high Adeasien boots will be your new go-tos every time you feel like making a statement. These leather beauties combine a never-ending lace-up with lug-tread soles, a genius pairing that’s part tough, part feminine and one hundred percent new.
