Keeping it Khaki – Military Style!

ATTTTTTTTTENTION! With Autumn in full swing and new season styles on our mind, it’s time to take a key trend and put it through its paces, FDJ LDN style. Military is big this Autumn/Winter and nothing brings it bang up to date than fashioning it into a fresh new shape. Step forward the military maxi dress. Will this piece be joining your style ranks or will it be “at ease soldier” for this one? Time to quick march yourselves this way fillies and see whether you will be part of this army, officer!

We have taken this marvellous military wrap maxi dress from Stephanie’s Closet through its paces and we don’t think it will disappoint. In that true army shade of khaki with nods to the military trend such as epaulettes and pin-tucked pockets, you’ll be ticking all the trend boxes like a style sergeant! Much more versatile than you would first think, you will find this to be your go to piece for fierce nights out and cosy day time jaunts.


Be ready to attack the festive season by bringing out the big guns! By adding a statement necklace, swapping the dress’ tie belt with a waist-cinching vintage number and popping on some killer heels you’ll be set to WOW! This dress comes with fab slits so you can seductively flash some skin whilst the crepe material skims and flatters curves. This will be making many appearances during the festive season, especially as the very forgiving elasticated waistband will accommodate all the big night out meals you can’t help but encounter, whilst still oozing oodles of glam! After the perfect little cover up to pop over the top? We think a luxe fur stole thrown over the shoulders would look perfection and if you need a bit of added warmth, opaque tights paired with ankle boots will attack the cold.

When you are gathering the troupes for a debrief over lunch, nothing will fire on all fashion fronts more than layering up your maxi with some forever stylish faves. Throw on an ever-faithful leather biker jacket, pile on some great gold chains and pull on this season’s shoe porn, the over the knee boot over your opaques and you will look uber sophisticated while dishing the gossip from the office party and supping on your latte. You will be so comfy that you can then trot around the shops afterwards!

It’s the morning after the night before and you are looking to style out that banging headache like a soldier! You’ll get nothing but style salutes by being savvy with textures and accessories that will not only comfort you, but look lush. Turn your dress into a skirt by snuggling into a fluffy cropped jumper, hiding your party-bedraggled bonce with your fashionista favourite fedora before layering on a eye-catching necklace, a pair of leggings and those OTK boots. You’ll be ready to face that big breakfast or pub lunch like a trooper!
