STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Modern Camouflage

Style Advice of the Week

I am one to admit that camouflage isn’t my favorite print to wear. However, in recent years, the fabric dyed in splotches of tan, brown, green and black has become a growing staple to have in your wardrobe. Popularized by the likes of hunters, such as Jase and Si of Duck Dynasty fame, the print was designed to blend into the elements of nature. The print is being worn today as a statement piece — the opposite of what it was designed to do.

The eye-catching nature of modernized version of this print is becoming more and more classic. Most Fashionistas/os want investment pieces, which is why camouflage has been around in fashion forever. The different variations of this classic military print make it more versatile in our wardrobe. This Fashionisto made his camouflage chic and modernized. He styled his dark charcoal camo sweater with ankle-cuffed denim pants and causal lace-up shoes. This look is perfect for the office, parties or even holiday occasions. It is a subtle way to stand out, not being too loud where you look as though you are starving for attention.

So should you apply this look to your wardrobe? The answer is yes. It will be a great addition to your fall wardrobe due to its graphic nature, yet the combination of color allows you stay in touch with the season. The only thing you need to consider when applying this trend to your wardrobe is to remember to wear it in moderation. Too much camo can overkill the statement you are trying to make. Ironic, huh?
