I have been a big fan of camouflage print since my childhood days and have always had something or the other in this military inspired print. Whether for fashion or function, camo has never been out of style. Just like polka dots or stripes, camo remains to be a wardrobe classic however, this season the print is hotter than ever with celebrities and designer popularizing it. The classic olive green has to be my personal favorite which is perfect for the fall weather. Many people find it difficult to pull off this print as it looks very tough and masculine, however the trick to work this trend lies in wearing it in moderation.
Following are some of the few ways to wear this print like a pro:
- Do not wear camo print head to toe. Stick to only one camo piece at a time to make a statement.
- You can either wear camo with colors like black, white and other neutrals or add pastel shades to soften the look.
- Accessorize your outfit well with golden or silver jewelry to keep the look on the feminine side.
- Lastly, go for a well-fitted camo piece. If the camo jacket is an oversize one, balance it out with a fitted dress or tee underneath.
Coming to my outfit, I am wearing a camouflage jacket in the classic olive green version. I fell in love with this jacket the moment I saw it. The patchwork detailing adds an element of fun to this otherwise rough and tough jacket. I have worn this jacket over a graphic bodycon dress. Again, the "No thanks" slogan goes pretty well with the bad-ass army look. The soft pastel pink color of the dress lends a feminine touch to the look. I have further accessorized the outfit with combat boots and layered chokers in black. Lastly, oxblood lips and round sunglasses completed the tough-girl look.
