Chic in Camo

You probably read the title and laughed because you thought it was the biggest oxymoron you’ve ever seen… but let me explain it to you. Normally, when I hear the word ‘camo’ I have to excuse myself to go throw up in the restroom. Nevertheless, camo has worked itself into many designer collections and clothing items. As with everything, there is a right way and wrong way to wear your camo pieces. You know you’re wearing it wrong with your friends can’t even see you because you’re covered in the camouflage pattern… we’re not trying to hunt some birds, we’re trying to hunt down a good boyfreind here. It’s still just as competitive of a sport, you just have to look hotter for the latter.

I personally do not own a lot of camo pieces in my wardrobe. The camo item that I do have, and love wearing because I always rack up a ton of compliments, are my camo jeans. These babies are so fun to play with in regards to styling! Sometimes I will go for more of a hot bad girl look by doing a black piece on top and black pumps or over-the-knee boots. If you are not into that, you can pair them with a flowy white blouse and some sandals for a great spring outfit. Check out my camo styled look below:

Recently, I have been noticing more camo integrated into street style looks. Camo is like denim, it is unisex and it comes in many different forms, shades, and pieces. There’s something about this pattern that can give off a super cool vibe (& that’s what we all strive for right?? pls agree with me so I know I’m not strange). I don’t believe that camo ever really goes completely out of style, I think that it just comes back in more popular shades and structures. It is able to change with the seasons and trends of fashion. A great example of this would be the classic green camo shades in the military jacket structure.

To show you how many people rock camo the correct chic way, check out the inspiration pictures below. If Riri and Cara are rocking camo, you know it’s the thing to do and it’s honestly so embarrassing if you haven’t caught onto the trend yet. Forget about your Thursday morning meeting and pencil in some time to shop for camo pieces that fit your personal style.

These street style stars are slaying in their camo influenced outfits. There are so many ways you can wear this cool pattern. You can pattern mix (seen on the boy) or  wear camo on camo (seen on Rihanna). The possibilities are endless! Today is a great day to enlist in the camo fashion army (Entree fee: rocking a camo piece in your outfit), so by all means, please do. You will be surprised how easily it is to wear camo and how much you will integrate your camo pieces into your wardrobe. Now get out of here and go plan a camo outfit for your next night out. The chicks & dudes dig it… seriously, you can’t lose.

Share with me your thoughts on camo and how you like to rock your camo pieces!

I am a 19 year old from Tulsa that is engulfed in a world of fashion. From modeling, styling, and writing about fashion I can say that I have lots of knowledge concerning the fashion industry. I am continuing to follow my passion of fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles, and plan to graduate December of 2018. I have big dreams of making my mark on the fashion industry. Eventually I hope my career allows me to live in Manhattan working in the industry that I love, and giving me the opportunity to travel the world for fashion weeks and other fashion related ventures.
