Military Looks Courtesy of Etsy

I think one of the common misconceptions about Etsy is that everything on the site is craft fair material. And I don’t mean the cool, indie craft fairs, I’m talking the bags of potpourri and creepy doll clothes kind of craft fair. And while there is a small amount of that kind of stuff on the site (Hi, Regretsy), there is also an overwhelming abundance of really cool and well-made pieces for us fashion minded folk. To prove it, I’ve been searching for items that fit into one of the biggest trends this season: military. The result? An abundance of great items at a fraction of the price that you’d pay in boutiques or vintage shops. Here are some of my finds:

A boyfriend blazer and military look in one!

Backpacks are my bag of choice for fall

A wallet is a subtle way to incorporate the military trend into your wardrobe

These glasses will look chic for years to come

Great boots pull the whole look together

Love the sexy side slit and buttons on this skirt.
