Autumn continues and It’s time to choose clothes of muted and calm colours. And my firts thought was of course about colour khaki, which is considered like inherent attribute to autumn fashion. So today I decided to tell you about military style which consists mainly of this colour. But firstly we are starting with its history.
Military style became widespread around the end of the sixties, when fashion has changed, and instead of the decorative elements designed to create a more psychedelic image, designers began to use military uniforms. In an effort to express their rebellious protest, young people begin to wear special “aged” camouflage clothing, a distinctive feature is the large holes and sloppy sewn patches.
Military uniforms had a great influence on fashion, integrating the different interpretations of the everyday clothes of people, not only in men but also in women. Fashion history is replete with examples how the military clothing migrated to our way of life, and by changing their original purpose, has become a familiar and integral part of the wardrobe.
Background for the emergence of a military style has appeared after the two great wars, which has been involved in most of the world – the First World War and, in particular – the Second World War. After the end of each of the long and devastating war the world had recover for a long time.It was formed a surplus of military uniforms, and the production adjusted ordinary clothes rather slowly, the financial situation also played a big role, people simply didn’t have the money on good clothes, so many had no choice but to adapt as the uniforms for peaceful purposes. Remade military clothing was worn by both men and women, and children.
