The Gold Button

Monday 16th Dec 2013

Fashion has often taken inspiration from military uniforms – think bomber jackets, sailor pants, camouflage prints, epaulettes and cargo pockets. My favourite however would have to be the gold button.

Originally found on military dress-jackets, the gold button is like the CIA operative of fashion, working best on their own*

Once added to a tailored blazer, there is no need for further accessorisation with these chic little baubles. They do all the work.

*Too much? One too many Jason Bourne movies, maybe?
