“Suede is a Must” are the exact words uttered from 3-time Grammy winner and Hip-Hop Mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs. Diddy further expounds his passionate beliefs on being fly by saying “You don’t own no suede than you ain’t fly.” When it comes to being fly Diddy first three rules are having #1. Options, #2. Fabrication, and #3. Suede. Earlier this month Diddy made an guest appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman wearing a Gucci shirt ($1,995) from the Fall 2010 collection. In compliance to at least two of Diddy’s rules, the Gucci shirt was camel colored featuring a suede front with a knit collar. Check out videos and images below

Atten-tion….About FacE! NO, It’ s not basic training, but it is Fall Fashion and you need to get whipped in to shape. So welcome to the Military Fashionistas!! When it comes to your fall wardrobe, pieces that inspire a military look should be hanging in your closet.
Jackets and coats that are decorated with brass buttons and epaulettes are a good way to get you started. Cargo pants are back in, but with a twist. No longer are we going baggy with the cargo pants, we are now going for a skinny pants leg.
Since this look is a bit masculine and heavy, you will definitely need to balance it out with feminine pieces. For example, If you decide to wear a military style coat or jacket pair it with shiny leggings. Add a stiletto bootie, an over-the-knee boot, or a flat rider boot to complete the look.
Popular Boutique Rider Boot $65.00
If you want to rock the skinny cargo pants wear a sequin tank and a military crop jacket at the top. This is a good way to balance out the masculine with the feminine.
Frilly shirts , dresses, shiny leggings, and sparkles are great ways to add a twist to the military look. At the end of the day you want a military inspired look, you don’t want to look like you’re in the military.
The miltary look is just as popular in the men’s fashion world as it is for women. Most of the same rules for tackling the look apply. For example, men look for double breasted or single breasted coats. The coats or jackets should be accented with metallic decorations. To rock the military inspired coat pair it with a slim dark jean or blue pant. Add a dark colored flat boot to complete the overall look.
To pull off the military look make sure you pull the right colors. Go for olive green, army green, cognac, camel, cream, brown, black, and navy. Also look for metallic accent pieces. Since the military trend is hot right now, you can find plenty of pieces to choose from at your favorite boutiques and department stores. Here’s a few pieces to get you started….LETS GO!
