Maybe it's the eggnog talking, but it seems like this year's military styles are totally reminiscent of that favorite seasonal character -- the nutcracker. Brass buttons, epaulets, the decorative gold details (aka frogging), it's all very Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
But this trend will last long after the twinkle lights go out and the pine needles are swept up, so get inspired by the holiday cheerfulness of these fa-la-la looks:
- Jazz up your everyday black uniform with Alice by Temperley's Game Structured-Jersey Military Jacket. This ornate piece includes a Mandarin collar and metallic gold accents for that Sgt. Pepper vibe ($375 at Net-a-Porter.com).
- Complete your marching orders with the Bregon booties from Aldo. The shoes feature brass buttons, lots of straps and cadet blue trim for a classic utilitarian look ($120 at Aldo). Or head to band practice in the majorette-esque Clemence Knee Hi by Hansel from Basel. Baton optional ($27.50 at Hansel from Basel).
- And to keep your digits toasty slip on Alice Hannah's Military Button Gloves. An assortment of buttons dangle from the embellished lambswool pair ($31.03 at Asos).
