Let's Hear it for the Boys

I’m always amazed by New Yorkers’ great sense of capturing trends. Clothing and accessories worn by famous bloggers, models or editors on Instagram today will appear on someone else on the street the following day. So, if you notice a lot of people dressing in one particular piece or pattern at New York City, you can be sure that it’s the latest trend.

This spring, New Yorkers show that camouflage is making a major comeback. From battlefield to street style, camo went a long journey and made a splendid transformation in the fashion world. The classic military color scheme offers your look a versatile, yet masculine touch. I saw camo showing up all over the street recently, from cap to pants, from shoes to backpack. But the most staple camo piece is the camo jacket, which is perfect for spring layering.

Taking a look at how cool and chic this Fashionisto is in his fab camo jacket. Differentiated from the traditional browns and greens camos, this jacket looks refreshing with a mixture of light mellow yellow. The color is perfect for spring. Don’t be afraid of straying away from the traditional color scheme, an nontraditional palette always brings your look new excitement. Topping off with a fitted cap, he knows how to create a smart street style well.

The key point to pull off camo is only wearing one camo garment one time. Unless you want to pretend you are the soldier in the battlefield.

Hint: A camo cap will instantly polish your preppy look in a hippy-hoppy way. A well-cut camo blazer adds the original raw pattern a sophisticated sense.
