LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Ready for Combat

Let's Hear it for the Boys

When the world starts to feel a little overwhelming — ahem during finals week — the most refreshing feeling can come from the things we can actually control. For Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike, this often means rocking a knock out head-to-toe look, while our classmates sulk around in sweats.

This Fashionisto shows he’s ready to take his finals by storm with his army-chic look. His oversized camouflage-printed military jacket sets the tone for his ensemble, and becomes the focal point with the bright, graphic print. He accents his jacket with an army green and star-printed crew neck and muted, fatigue looking pants. The most unique item of his look is his majorly buckled combat boots, which add a modern, almost futuristic vibe. The finishing touch comes in with his vintage-inspired round frame sunglasses, which add a final element of mystery to his camouflaged look.

The camouflage print was everywhere this fall, from skinny rocker pants to printed sneakers. But just because the ground color changed from greens and browns to snow-covered white, doesn’t mean your camo pieces can’t still come in handy. Ignore the prints designed intentions to blend in — it’s more fun to stand out.

Hint: If the camo print is too aggressive for you, that does not mean you can’t incorporate the military style into your look. Opt for an understated chic fatigue jacket for a casual layer, or for those of us who are stuck in the freezing Syracuse winters, try an army green puffer jacket.
