When searching for this week’s Fashionsito, I was looking for something new, something that hadn’t been featured yet; and that’s when I saw the camouflage. Once a material exclusive only to soldiers on the battlefield, camouflage has integrated itself into everyday society as well as the fashion industry. Typically, the versatile material was used to dazzle and confuse the observer as it blended well with the background. But when I saw this particular Fashionisto rocking his good share of this material, my eyes were instantly drawn to his stark camouflage and denim pairing.
This Fashionisto wore his statement camouflage pants with a shirt (portraying the American flag) and he topped it off with a structured and well fitting denim jacket. I really like that the Fashionisto chose to wear the denim jacket because not only does it nicely complement the colors of the shirt, but it also acted as a neutral contrast. Because of this contrast, my eyes were instantly drawn to the pants.
To bring further contrast to his statement piece, the stylish Fashionisto chose to rock a pair of army green Palladium boots. Because the boots were a lighter shade than that of the pants, they added to the contrast and made for a great fall color combo. Finally, the Fashionisto brought together his whole outfit with a brilliant tri-colored book bag with gold detailing. The red, blue and camouflage book bag was my personal favorite from this outfit because of its unexpected charm and the way it was able to embody the whole outfit.
Hint: Camouflage is a versatile pattern that can be worn in many different ways. This week’s Fashionisto chose to rock camouflage pants and a book bag, and you can put your own spin on it with sweaters or shoes in the same pattern. Keep it simple and remember to pair the camo pieces with other neutrals because too many patterns can clash.
