From the Editor, Let's Hear it for the Boys

There are some trends that creep up on us and then just explode. Right now, there is no pattern more powerful in fashion than camouflage. Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike are hopping on this trend by sporting camo pants, jackets and even hats.

When a pattern becomes so prevalent, it is important to keep it fresh and unique. This Fashionisto took on the camo trend in an unexpected way. The print acts more as a pop of interest with his canvas carryall. He opted for black and white over the traditional green and brown combo. This move definitely makes it more graphic and fashion-forward. The camo print also makes the bag more masculine. Even better, he personalized the bag by adding his own initials in varsity letters. (Two trends in one—major score!)

By going for camouflage in his accessories, this Fashionisto still has the flexibility to dress in a manner that reflected his personal style. From his torn jeans to his furry jacket to his beanie, you can tell this is no ordinary Fashionisto. These fashion risks definitely paid off and caught my eye instantly. The camo bag is the simple piece that ties the whole look together.

So instead of going for a more literal interpretation of the trend, think outside the box. Find a great camo accessory to really build your outfit around.

Hint: Follow this same formula for every trend. For example, this Fashionisto also jumped aboard the sportswear trend by rocking a pair of sneakers. But instead of opting for the standard Nike Frees, he went for a bold color that once again really made a statement.
