I had a lot of comments and questions after I posted a picture on instagram (pic below) about camo and how to pull off the look for every day wear. It’s a great question but also a hard one to answer in a comment so I decided to do a post about it! I am the first to admit I never thought chic and camo could ever go together but as fashion has evolved pairing feminine and more rugged looks together has become super popular. And after finding my own personal style with this trend – I actually LOVE it now! I would not classify myself as super girlie but I am also not someone who will be getting called out as sporty spice either soooo that puts me some where in the middle haha. But I think its why I like this look so much, it’s pairing chic/ feminine touches with the edgy camo trend creates a balance of both styles!
When I go to style an outfit with a camo print pant is important for me to make sure its flattering first. There are a ton of different styles and color-ways when it comes to this print but since my hips and butt are my biggest part I am always cautious. When shopping for any printed pant, especially camo, I make sure they have a GOOD fit and for my shape – I like them to be a little more high-waisted. I also like going for a slightly darker shade or a more subtle/ muted camo print so that I don’t feel like I am drawing too much attention to my bottom half. When I look for a top to pair with a printed pant always think neutral as a good rule of thumb. I love crisp white button down or a great mauve sweater, (or both as I have done in this styled picture). You can try to pull off a hot pink if you really want to create a drastic contrast from the camo print but for myself, I tend to go more chic and classic on top. So I suggest a neutral blouse or soft feminine color sweater. My advice for shoes with this look is to try to go with a more feminine shoe style that usually has some type of heel to it. I love pairing pumps with my pants but you can also do a tan or black boot with them. I have linked some of my favorite options for pants below!
Some styles included are ones I love in the camo print and I also linked a few pants that give that same edgy look but without the print, just in case your not ready to cross over into the camo trend yet 🙂
Now probably a less intimating way to when starting to add a little camo into your wardrobe is to go with a top. For most, myself included, it is easier to pair a camo print top with what you already have in your closet so here are some great style options to create the look. Pair the camo top with your black skinny jeans and black pumps. Or try putting the top is with some distressed denim and tan booties or pumps. When trying to decide on the best denim wash to pair it with, my rule of thumb is to go with the most flattering wash which in most cases is usually a darker wash.
