Spring Trend: Rough Edge

This Spring, military took a grungy rough edge - with military green canvas, leather and distressed jeans - it is a particularly 90s grunge look - as if Kurt Cobain got stuck in a whirlpool with an army and Alexander Wang. The gritty, dirty look can be easily achieved with either vintage pieces straight from the 90s if your brave enough - or from the likes of designers Alexander Wang and Balmain who took this twist on board for their Spring/Summer collections this year. 

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2010
Alexander Wang made this trend his own, and this is my favourite take on the trend for Spring/Summer. He used loose army style jackets with peep toe boots, rough plaits and leather shorts - for a truly hard look.

Balmain Spring/Summer 2010
At the Balmain show, army shirts were mixed with leather and denim for an army inspired, tough look. I especially like the second look, which features some drop-dread gorgeous leather trousers, teamed with some studded sandals.
Haider Ackermann Spring/Summer 2010
At the Haider Ackermann show, strict military was mixed in with drapey dresses. Military gilets which cut off at the shoulder, as seen above are a simple, chic way of incorporating this trend into your wardrobe - just add some washed out jeans and studded heels.
