As seasoned Fashionistas and Fashionistos, I’m sure you’re all aware of the fresh trends fashion is bringing to us this season. With all of the new colors, prints and textures showcased on the runways, it’s hard to choose a favorite. This Fashionista definitely had one in mind: camouflage.
Now there’s no denying the fact that camouflage is one of the hottest prints of the season. Shirts, pants, skirts, bags, neckties; what hasn’t been touched by the military trend? In this Fashionista’s case, the jacket was the star of the show. What I love about the look is its edgy, vintage feel. When I asked where she got her jacket from, she informed me that it was an actual authentic U.S. Army uniform from a relative. Mixed with a simple top, leather leggings and a fringe bag, this Fashionista was the epitome of edgy, laid-back chic. She topped her look off with some cool vintage Dr. Martens she found at a local thrift store.
When it comes to prints, don’t be afraid to experiment! With its versatility and unisex appeal, camouflage is the perfect print for anyone looking to mix their wardrobe up a bit. It can be worn casually or dressed up. For you ladies, check out this one by ASOS or, if you’re feeling a little edgier, have a look at this studded version by Topshop. And guys, don’t fret, there’s a great option for you too. Now here’s to marching forward to a great, stylish semester ahead! Pun totally intended.
