Military and workwear style detailing such as exaggerated pockets, additional zips and functional extras is one of this seasons key (and in most cases pretty useful) trends. Brands such as CP Company, Creative Recreation, Stone Island, Adidas, Luke and the masters of functionality – Barbour have incorporated this military inspired trend in to some of their latest creations, making it easier than ever to shop this look.

Exaggerated Pockets

Winter jackets with fully functioning cargo pockets in an exaggerated size are definitely a must-have this season. Having that bit of extra storage in your jacket is pretty handy and also just so happens to be really on trend this winter – bonus! Here we have selected jackets from CP Company and Luke, with both brands adding functional extras without compromising on style.

Look 2 – CP Company Khaki Down Filled Goggle Jacket, Armani Jeans J06 Slim Fit Dark Wash Jeans

Military Style

If you’re a fan of military inspired fashion but bored of camo jackets then this is the perfect look for you this season. A combat inspired colour palette of khaki, black and grey, slim fit double pocket shirts and clothing with additional or multiple pockets are the most up-to-date way of bringing military to your wardrobe. Here we have selected some tracksuit bottoms from CP Company with a patch pocket detail to the side as well as a double pocket shirt and khaki overshirt both from Barbour.

Zip Details

As well as additional and oversized pockets another popular detail this season is zips, making a welcome addition to t-shirts and sweats from some of our favourite brands. Zip-details might not be as handy as numerous pockets but they add a little bit of something extra to simple clothing, as well as falling right in line with this season’s trend for all things functional. Here we have selected a khaki tee from Creative Recreation and sweatshirt from Adidas, both with fully functioning zip details to the side.


Look 1 – Adidas Originals Black Modern Crew Neck Sweatshirt, Stone Island Grey Skinny Fit Denim Jeans, Luke 1977 Flyers Charcoal Grey Woven Trainers
