As I am sure many of you have already seen, the Camo trend is gracing us with yet another season of its glorious military inspired look and I’m not mad about it! The camo trend has come along way from camouflage print utility jackets. From dresses to shoes to bags, this print has really taken off which means anyone can rock this trend.
Now I know that this trend can be a little intimidating. I mean really who wants camo print plastered across their ass?! Lord knows I have some hips on me and the last thing I want to do is to accentuate them (umm can someone point me to the camouflage that ACTUALLY hides things!?!)
But here is the good news! For anyone thinking the same thing but wanting to try this trend out, you can and I promise, paired with the right top, this print can be just as sliming as a good pair of black denim.
Since the camo trend has been going strong for a while, there are a lot of options out there right now when it comes to pants. From joggers to boyfriend fit to skinny jeans, there is a style out there for everyone, which means finding a flattering camo print pant is easier now that ever. Another thing to consider is the wash or color of the camo print. You know the age old saying “black makes you look thinner”, well that can easily be applied to camo print as well. Look for a print in darker shades vs. lighter. This is also a really easy way to try this trend out in regards to pants because the camo print won’t stand out as much.
Another thing is what you pair your new found camo print pant with. Think chunky cable knit sweaters in a neutral color or a blazer or jacket. This will add some weight up top, balancing the print out on the bottom. Either of these looks could easily be paired with flats or a heel. Booties are also a good option but I lean towards a flat or heel to keep the sillohouette a little more balanced. A pointy toed heel is slimming and lengthens your body and a simple flat, finishes the outfit off with a classic touch without drawing too much attention to your feet.
If a camo print pant is not your thing, have no fear, there are endless other ways to add a touch of camo to your outfit. I think camo print pants, jackets and shirts are the most common ways people think to wear a camo print but if you are not convinced that this trend is for you, there are some really great ways to try it out without jumping in head first. Think scarves, bags or even shoes. These are great ways to ease yourself into this print without feeling like a walking advertisement for the camo trend.
I personally love a good camo print utility jacket. I get so much use out of one because there are so many ways I can style it. From basic denim and a white tee, white button down or even a lightweight sweater to black denim and a gray tee to even white denim and a black tee, I find there are so many ways to wear this jacket, that people won’t even realize I keep wearing it over and over and over again! Now that my friends, is what I call a WIN WIN!
Below I’ve shared some of my favorite camo print items and two looks inspired by them! I hope you all have a great week ahead!
