AT ATTENTION: As we march forward into late summer and fall, military-inspired styles will take center stage. Hallmarked by shades of green and structured details, these items will fall right in step with many of your existing wardrobe staples. A versatile piece such as the MARC by Marc Jacobs Uniform Dress, for example, can be paired with ankle-length leggings and black booties for day, then textured tights and an armful of bangles after dark. Or you could layer it over a floral cami and slip on a pair of bright pumps. Three looks (and then some) for the price of one? That’s a trendy piece we’ll gladly salute. GET IT: MARC by Marc Jacobs Uniform Dress, $298. Available online from Neiman Marcus.
