The Military Trend has Arrived at Oasis
Attention! Model Army is the feminine update to this season's must-wear military style on divine dresses and soft separates.
Inspired by Victoria Beckham's AW12 collection, Oasis has gone more chic than camouflage with their interpretation of the craze for everything army-inspired this season. Khaki is officially the new hue on softest silk and backed to leather, a new shade that's effortlessly flattering on all skin tones.
Military shapes are instantly softened in sheer finishes or with a touch of shimmer, such as sequin details on updated knitwear. However, the standout piece of the collection is the Ponte Dress in a shift shape with the essential epaulet details and statement exposed zip to the rear that looks straight from the catwalks. Smart enough for the office, this is the easiest ever day to night dress to take you from desk to dinner, and just needs a simple clutch and pair of neat ankle boots to complete the look.
When the chill sets in, the most covetable coats are the classic parka (Oasis have updated theirs with a removable leopard-print fur inner) or, for a smarter finish, there's also biker-inspired styles and faux fur collars on quilted finishes.
Leather and leather-look separates are the perfect accomplice to this trend - whether a quilted leather mini-skirt, peplum top or coated skinny jeans which have the luxe-look of leather but all the comfort of your favourite denim. For the impending party season, why not explore Oasis dresses? The Rebecca Faux Leather Bandeau Dress, for example, ensures you can stArt Party season early - this cocktail dress juxtaposes a bandeau-style top with pretty pleats which remain an important style detail throughout Autumn/Winter. To style out pleats in a more casual setting, the Pleated Military Shirt Dress in the key khaki colour comes complete with a waspish waist belt for all in one dressing made easy.
