School Post #4: Color on the Streets of NYC

Our next assignment was to scour the NYC streets for a common color. Below are some photos I snapped over the weekend of some friends;
the military influence was everywhere, with New Yorkers adopting army green parkas, jackets, and tanks in effortlessly cool ensembles.
Clay, Filmmaker & Artist; 28th Street & 8th Avenue
Clay is wearing an authentic uniform from the Canadian Armed Forces that he bought from an army surplus store in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. 
Jaclyn, FIT student & Blogger at Stepping in Stilettos; 27th Street & 7th Avenue
Jaclyn layered her military green Forever 21 tank under a leather moto jacket.
Vanessa; FIT student & Blogger at Of The Moment...; 28th Street & 10th Avenue
Vanessa paired her PINK by Victoria's Secret army green parka with cropped jeans and nude heels.
Below are some additional New York streetstyle photos I've compiled from StyleCaster and Harper's Bazaar to bring you more inspiration:
 Above: Textile Elizabeth and James Gregory Pullover Racoon-Trimmed Parka, Acne Admire boots,
Shopbop Skinny Cargo Pants, and Lisa Marie Fernandez swimsuit.
H&M army green jacket & tights ● Club Monaco silk pocket t-shirt & skirt ● Zara belt ● Aldo heels ● MAC 'So Chaud' lipstick
Here's my version of this color trend, a staple in my spring wardrobe (blogged here, here, and here), military green is here to stay! Thoughts?
