Fashion is very much like the song – “follow the leader, leader, leader, follow the leader” by the Soca Boys – and this year’s fashion trend for Autumn & Winter Coats is no different.

This has been the way for many decades, including when John Lennon of The Beatles wore a M-65 and YSL introduced his iconic jacket.

What we have seen showcased on the catwalk for the Autumn & Winter of 2016 is no different, with all the leading fashion designers adding their own twist to this army theme.

Khaki military coats by premium brands Burberry, Miu Miu, DSquared2 and Prada, will replace many fashionistas trusted camel coat as the preferred outerwear option for Autum/ Winter, 2016

The army jackets we’ve seen this season at the Fashion Shows (Burberry, Givenchy, Gucci & others) is that there appears to be a fashion design influence from 18th-century Britain and France. They’re cool, fresh and invigorating; powerfully shouldered; and adorned with epaulettes, brass buttons, and rope trim, plus a few modern twists like bows and crystals.

Peter Dundas showcased a luxe fur-trimmed army jacket at Roberto CavalliCaroline Brasch Nielsen wore an embroidered denim design from Marc Jacobs’s collection. No matter what the glamorous were wearing, khaki coats were frequently on by Dolce & GabbanaBurberry et al.

The trend picked up pace in Paris, France. John Galliano‘s elongated fabric woven and elaborate design jacket and Haider Ackermann‘s practical fatigues is perhaps the fashion industry’s empathy towards abhorrent recent attacks in Paris. Such sentiment was perhaps in the back of every designer’s mind this season, as an ‘affirmative‘ show of solidarity without any collective ‘army briefing‘.

There is no need to ‘improvise, Overcome, and adapt’ as per the Marines, the khaki army coats and jackets we saw at the fashion show runways were styled with real-life eye-catching, durability and practicality was borne in design mind, which is bound to be a head turner this Autumn and Winter. So ‘stand and ease‘, or rather let me put your mind at ease, this is a fantastic look this fall and over the festive season, regardless of what you are wearing underneath.
