The military print, or camo as commonly called, hit the runway this year in an updated version. From function to fashion, and from earthy tones to florescent hues, the camouflage print (or camo) has gone through a major makeover this season. We’ve seen it on the runways and we’ve seen it on the celebrities. If you haven’t already, join the trend and bring out the fashionista in you with these chameleon colors, because there are countless ways to dress it up!


How to Wear Camo!

Don’t Go Overboard

The camouflage print is very versatile. It is great for any fashion piece – from shoes to clothes to accessories. But make sure you are not drowning in the print. Limit yourself to one piece of camo per outfit. If you want to play safe, style it with neutrals, or a solid color if you want to look bold and strong.

Avoid Mixing Camouflage with Other Prints

This print looks great in isolation. So make sure you don’t play print on print with camo. If you want to experiment and with mixing prints,  team it with stripes. Never pair it with animal prints or anything jungle to avoid looking like a hot mess!

For a Subtler Touch, Try Camo Accessories

A sharp hit of camo is all you need to bring life into your existing monochrome outfits. Instead of going all in with a camouflage printed dress or shorts, amp up your look with punches of the quirky camo. Try camouflage wedges, phone case or even a scarf.

Accessorize Camouflage Print with Metallics

Take this look to the red carpet like Sarah Jessica Parker. Give this trend a glam feel by accessorizing military print with metallics. Try pairing your camo dress or pants with metallic pumps, clutch or even chunky rings.

Add a Pop of Color

Evolving from traditional greens and browns, new color combinations in camouflage print such as fluorescent pinks and greens are sure taking this print to a whole new level this year. This print is being seen on all things fancy like gowns, tuxedos, dresses and even lingerie!

Bring the Rocker Mojo with Leather

You don’t have to ride a kickass motorbike or have a certain type of attitude to rock the tough chick look. Pair your leather jacket with camo pants or mini-skirt. Team it with high heels to add the glam femininity.Or you could rock camouflage like Ri-Ri with thigh high boots for an edgy outfit. Another idea to go rocker with the military print is to pair it with leather tights.
