When The S8nts Go Marching In

Perhaps this isn't the best title to incorporate the YSK trademark "8" into, but what I meant to say was: "When The Saints Go Marching In". Get it? :P

Anyway, this review is all about military-inspired fashion! Think epaulettes, army bands, war badges - it's all about the architecture and iconography of your outfit, and I've been blinded by the pervasiveness of products we've come to recognise as military chic :D

It's on the runways, it's on our most-stalked celebs, and it's definitely on the blogosphere! :D Time to get you started - if you haven't already!

From Soak Republic RM20-RM22
Military badges, pins and brooches are a staple piece for those who love the style
but want an affordable and versatile accessory to loop 'em in! :D
I say these would look great on a plain blazer or jacket -
casual enough to be worn over a tank top and jeans!

From Idol RM45 | RM36 | RM36
Wow, their military-inspired collection is sure worth saluting! :D (Pun fully intended)
First we have a tube dress where Oriental feminine stylings meets military edginess -
then we've got the puffy-shouldered top (a favourite on the online shopping world!) with bands -
and then a very versatile, easy-to-match military jacket (which I deem a must-buy!).
Everything's under RM50 too! :D Definitely affordable!

From Mj Accessories RM30 | RM19.90
Personally, I find that these types of accessories go very well with the military persona! :D
Whether it's a structured bib necklace (fully studded or beaded), gemstone headband,
or a charm bracelet with coins, gemstones, pearls and memorabilia -
these kinda accessories definitely add authenticity and a feminine touch to the outfit :)

The Manni Quin RM35
Here's another military jacket that's well-suited for petites! :D
If you're fearful about drowning in an oversized army jacket, this is the way to go -
well-tailored structure and fitting to size 4-6 frames :)
The puffy shoulders also help to add bulk (to answer reader Mia who asked for tips to look bigger!) :)
Layers and structure definitely construct a frame for you -
if what you seek is a bigger frame, seek a bigger structure :D

From Zikkos RM30 | RM35
Wide-winged birds and His Majesty crowns are always part of the military iconography! :D
One of my favourite new blogshops, Zikkos is definitely a go-to store for accessories -
and true enough, I found military-inspired trinkets here as soon as I started looking! :)

From Goodbye Good Stuff Price according to highest bidder - currently RM7
Last but not least, how more military could you get beyond Star Wars keychains? :P
Haha! I couldn't resist adding this into the review mix - especially for our male readers! :D
Also, Goodbye Good Stuff is a blogshop project by Emily and Kelvin to raise funds for their wedding -
awww, what a sweet story - so click here to visit them and shop! ;)

Happy Shopping!
Your Shopping Kaki :)
