Question: How can I pull off the camo fashion trend?
Answer: Camo fashion has been in style for some time now. I have to admit that back in the day, I used to be terrified of it. It can still be terrifying—but, when styled correctly, it is adorably edgy. It’s all about the pieces you choose, what you pair it with, and how you wear it. If you’ve got the confidence to wear it, then you’re probably doing it right.
I own a pair of camo pants and absolutely love them. It may take a more daring person, but let me tell you: it’s worth the risk. Skinny pants are the way to go with this style, so be sure to steer clear of the baggy camo look. You don’t want to look like you are actually serving in the military when you aren’t. If you decide to wear camo in pant form, pair them with a cute pair of tall boots, combat boots, or cute flats. I’m more of a boot person myself, but the right pair of flats will look great as well. Style it with either an edgy, casual tee, or a simple white v-neck, to give the outfit a carefree look. Shorts are another amazing way to wear camo as bottoms.
Camo jackets or dresses are another great way to incorporate this trend in your everyday look. My favorite way to wear this trend? Jackets. Throw on a light camo jacket with a simple tee and black or demin skinnies, and you’re good to go. It’s the perfect stylish (yet simple) look for spring! Add some aviators, and you’ll receive looks of envy left and right.
As long as you keep your outfit simple and edgy, the style will work. It’s all about how you style it. Remember: if the camo looks cheap, it probably isn’t a good idea to wear it. You have to be able to distinguish whether it looks like it was found in the kids’ section of a discount store vs a high end retailer. I’m not saying it has to be expensive, but it should look polished (with an edge). Think of in the same way as pleather: be smart about it, choose a classy piece, and you’ll look fabulous.
