We Are Ann : Femme Military
Sandy: So, Kris.
Sandy: I was just hoping that we could kind of talk about our September feature for Facebook. Each month we do one or two styling features. So, I was just wondering what you thought would be a good concept for September.
Kristin: How about we focus in the top five military pieces?
Sandy: Okay. I’m totally fine.
Kristin: I’m going to style them in a week, even though it’s the top five pieces, it can be the best chain belt, but we’ll always take a bite to [Inaudible].
Sandy: Okay. Great. I’ll check in this afternoon.
It looks like you’re already pulling stuff together.
Sandy: That’s great. Things are pulling together so fast.
Kristin: No, no problem, always. This is fashion, honey. So, what I got here are the elements we talked about on the Military trend.
We’ve got accessories mixed with outfits. So, what I love is this chain detail, especially mixed with the leopards.
Sandy: That’s great faux bag.
Kristin: I know. I love the tassels too.
Then we’ve got a belt in the chain detail as well, and mixed back with a classic LPD. That just gives a bit of an inch.
For fall, it’s all about minimalism and then black colors that go with that, so definitely focusing on the neutral tones.
And then, a touch of military. You can also bring in this stripe. So, I love to layer stripe underneath a cardigan. You could roll up the sleeves, show a bit of detail.
Maybe this one.
Sandra: Yeah, that definitely has a theme going on.
Kristin: Yeah. It’s a shirt dress, one nice shirt dress with a double lapel and double button. You could belt that as well.
Sandra: It’s perfect but I don’t know where to wear it to. I always want to make sure we have that option for her.
Kristin: Of course. The jacket is also essential. We’ve got a few here that our own theme with the buttons again, the brass button, or the exposed zip. So, this is more of a lightweight jacket and then you put one in the woman which you prefer.
I think this is great with a skinny jean. I think this is perfect dress.
Sandra: Is there anything else?
Kristin: What about shoes? I love this one at the moment because of military detail.
Sandra: Okay. All right, we’ll talk about this. Okay, all right, so let’s see when we get, we shoot it in the next few days. We can see if we can mix it somewhere.
