Make it Work: 8 Ways to Wear Camo

The camo trend doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. With designers continuing to come out with new camouflage pieces and incorporating the rugged print into their collections, there are literally thousands of different ways to add a little camo to your wardrobe. If you’re under the misconception that camouflage doesn’t fit your personal style or you aren’t sure how to wear the print with anything you already own, we're here to prove you wrong. 

1. Luxe



 

This outfit is for the girls who love a designer label here and there and don’t mind the occasional spurge on a trendy item. The camo fur jacket featured in this outfit is truly an investment piece that will last a lifetime. Pair it with some distressed jeans, but keep the outfit looking luxe with the black leather booties and clutch.

2. Girly

If you love to look super feminine but want to experiment with the camo look, pair the edgy print with super girly pieces. Start with a slightly oversized camo shirt and add a quilted leather skirt, pointed-toe black flats and a glitzy necklace. The two different looks in this one outfit play off each other to accentuate your girly style and the camouflage trend.

For all you girls who would rather wear shorts and sneakers than a skirt and heels, this outfit is perfect. The dark green bomber jacket paired with leggings and Nike sneakers makes for a comfortable look using pieces you probably already own. To add a dash of camo to your look, opt for a small accessory like this beanie that. If you want to style the outfit a little more, try a dark red lip and some big shades for some extra sass.

4. Simple

When you think of camouflage, you probably don’t automatically think of it meshing well with the boho/beachy vibe that East Coasters rock in the summer and West Coasters rock year round. A black maxi skirt and crop top allow all the attention to be on your fabulous camo purse. Since this is a warm weather outfit, accessories like sandals, sunglasses and a floppy hat are essential.

6. Formal

If you have a nicer luncheon or event to go to, you can still rock camo as long as you have the right pieces. Start off with a camo skirt in a high quality material as the focal point of your look. A high-neck crop top is a nod to the two-piece trend happening right now and is conservative enough to wear to a formal event. Dramatic black earrings and strappy black heels are great additions, as are the cat eye sunglasses.

7. Classic

To keep the look true to your style, add a structured black bag and a headband, complete with a cute little bow.

This look is for all you Tumblr-addicted girls who love purple hair and the '90s. If you want to add to your Doc Martens collection, consider this camouflage pair of boots that look just like the name brand, but are a fraction of the cost. Throw on a pair of high-waisted leather pants and a graphic sweatshirt, and add a studded leather backpack and alien earrings for an eccentric touch.

Camo is definitely here to stay. How do you rock the camo trend?
