STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Cooling Off With Camouflage

Style Advice of the Week

As the semester begins and summer melts into fall, it’s finally time to start cooling off from those hot summer days. Soon it will be time to break out the boots, pants and cardigans. This Fashionista was spotted in an outfit perfect for the transition between the two seasons. Rocking a camouflage jacket over a  LBD, this Fashionista stands out in her blend-able print.

In recent years, the military trend has been steadily becoming more apparent. While I am normally not a fan of the camouflage print, it has been growing on me as of late. She starts the look with a simple little black dress. Pairing a LBD with a light printed jacket is a perfect way to spice up any LBD and stay comfortable as temperatures cool.

She pairs the look with boots, a belt and plenty of rings and accessories. Last week we discussed statement jewelry; this week’s look uses jewelry to add a bit of shine without distracting from the ensemble. She keeps the other elements of her look simple so that the camouflage print can act as the bold statement piece.

The military trend is handy because the muted, neutral browns, blacks and greens can be paired with many different options. Take a hint from this Fahionista and pair an oversized camouflage jacket with a simple, yet girly outfit to add a bit of grunge. Not sure if you can handle the print? Try starting off with a simpler green military jacket to emulate the trend.

A word to the wise, keep it simple with this trend! Pairing camouflage with another print will be overwhelming. Keep your base simple so that the print will really pop. Try pairing the look with another texture like leather pants.

So, this fall, try standing out with a print designed for disguise. The neutral tones are perfect for fall and a printed piece makes for the perfect statement look. With this look, this Fashionista will be doing anything but blending in!
