How to Wear the Camouflage Trend

Camouflage might possible be my favorite fall trends, or it at least makes the top five list. Maybe it’s all the winters I spent sitting in a tree stand next to my dad waiting for a deer to walk by, but I’m a little gaga over all the different permutations the trend has taken. (I think we can thank the popularity of Duck Dynasty for this!) But wearing this fall trend is not the easiest, especially for the camo-shy. Below are some helpful tips on how to wear the camouflage trend.

How to Wear Camo - Outfit 2 & 3

Start small. If you are unsure of this trend, or any for that matter, find a small way to incorporate it into your wardrobe. This might be through a scarf, or inexpensive muted vest. Go for subtle and understated as you get started. (Try something like this black and gray Camouflage Infinity Scarf!)

Keep colors to a minimum. Yes, this is a pattern, but is usually a pattern that already contains a number of colors, usually in the green and brown categories. This automatically limits the colors and items it can be paired with. Go black, brown, gray, white or even a burgundy.

Go for understated. Since camouflage is already a pretty bold choice in clothing, try to keep the rest of the look basic.

Pick a coloring that flatters. I’ve seen a lot of camouflage items out there! With so many color combinations make sure to pick one that flatters your skin type and hair color. A very yellow-based camo isn’t going to look good on those who should be wearing clothing in the blue-family.

Add feminine touches. With camouflage traditionally seen as a more masculine item, make sure your outfit contains feminine pieces – earrings, necklace, scarf, heels.

For shirts or jackets opt for fitted. You don’t want to look like you borrowed our dad’s over-sized hunting jacket. Instead go for something that has some shape and definition. The same could be said for pants. (Something like this BCBGeneration Camo Jacket would be perfect!)

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topiic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would youu be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested

    to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I do not know if it’s jst me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems
    with your blog. It appears as if some of the text within your content are running off the
    screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Many thanks
