Going Camo

Camo is a true example that someone can turn an idea that is not so glamorous and turn it into the next year’s biggest fashion trend. A style that was only thought of as a southern hunting symbol is now worn by city girls and guys all over the world. Even on Runways of some of the world’s most loved designers, Valentino and Michael Kors. As always, runway style is a bit more fashion forward and risky than street style. Michael Kors sent his models down the catwalk in full camo ensembles, which might be too much for the everyday woman. 

If you love this trend but are not sure on how to wear it in a way that works for you, start small. Pick yourself up a loose fitting camo print jacket like the pictures above. Add your favorite denim cutoffs and a white pocket v neck to finish the look! This is a great way to introduce a look into your wardrobe that might be scary to try out at first. Just remember, like all things that you are trying for the first time, start small. If you feel bold and daring, then go all out and dress head to toe in full camo! As long as you have the confidence to go with your outfit then work it! 

Though I believe that much of the time, less is more, I also believe you can’t be in the fashion business if you are afraid to take some risks! If you still want to stay safe and go for the jacket, try pairing it with a bold and bright pop of color! It will add an unexpected addition to your style without going too far.
