Though I don't own any camo clothing myself, I have several clients who do. It's one of the few trends this season that has my stamp of approval. Camo can work well with the neutrals in your wardrobe. It's also great for layering or juxtaposing with ultra-girly pieces. There are many ways to incorporate this print if you're ready to adopt the camo trend.
Add a shoe.
Tip-toe into this camo trend by adding a pair of camo booties or heels to your shoe collection. I have two clients that own this pair by Michael Kors and I am constantly surprised by how much use we get out of them. Like leopard or tortoise shell, camo is a print that allows you to mix your black and brown pieces without looking like you got dressed in the dark.
Layer it over a dress.
For the bold, try wearing a camo-print oxford or jacket over a t-shirt dress. You can leave it open for a relaxed look or roll up the sleeves and knot or belt it at the waist for a bit more shape.
Replace your go-to denim with camo.
Instead of reaching for that pair of jeans you've worn a hundred times, opt for a camo pant. This print can act like a neutral, making it a great option to pair with sweaters and tees in shades like grey, black, brown, beige, and white.
Go Full Hoosier
I was born in Indiana and lived there until I was a teenager. Camo never goes out of style in the Hoosier State. I was initially hesitant to pair camo with orange because it looks too much like hunting gear to my eyes. Yet, when I had a client last month who wasn't sure how to style a camo tee, we paired it with distressed jeans and orange sneakers; and it looked great.
