I’ve always been a fan of camo, so I am thrilled that this pattern is on trend for fall— it’s a neutral, in my book. I think it instantly takes any normal street wear look straight to chic, if done correctly. I am NOT here for a camo utility pant, unless you’re Kim Possible. This is not a Cadet Kelly opportunity, y’all *sorry— 90s baby here*.
To embrace the camo trend, it has to be done in a very particular manner. A formula I can always count on: CAMO PANT + GRAPHIC TEE + DENIM JACKET + STATEMENT SNEAKER. Or if you’re wanting to take camo out for a night on the town, may I suggest this combo LBD + CAMO JACKET + BOOTIE.
No matter how you’re wanting to embrace this trend, just stay clear of anything too ‘cadet like’ and you’ll be well on your way.
PRO TIP: pattern play works well with camo! My two favorite patterns to add to a camo look are stripes and leopard (but never all three at once, don’t get crazy).
I like to think of camo tees as the into to wearing camo! It’s the perfect way to see if you like this trend, before committing to pants or a jacket… or shoes.
Once you’re fully ready to go GI Jane and you’re not afraid to show it– break out the camo jackets! These are the most fun and diverse way to wear camo, in my opinion! There are so many great options out there– some a little more discreet than others:
