War and Remembrance
by Janna Lutz

Lane Bryant's military style plus size denim jacketThere is a little spice of military is this year's plus size fashion items found at leading stores. In this brand new article, Janna Lutz takes a look at her favorite items which have a 'military' fashion twist, and suggests how we can incorporate them into our everyday wardrobe.

Take a deep breath.  Smell that crisp autumn air, the sweet caramel apples, those camo print tees.  That last one threw you, didn't it?  Yeah, you are still sniffing the air for caramel.  Military style jackets and tops are marching into every women's department from Dillards to Target.  One of my personal "must lust" items for the fall is Lane Bryant's military denim jacket.  I dare say it can be sneaked into the office with a skirt and sexy camisole.  You could pair this bad boy with almost anything, from that skirt to bootcuts jeans, even khakis.  Fashion Bug also carries jackets with a military flare that will spice up you closet without putting a damper on your bank account
