There is no doubt that the military uniform trend has had a grip on fashion for many seasons — from the timeless trench coat to the military boot. While some trends go as quickly as they come, others tend to transcend the test of time. The camouflage print is one that has steadily survived season to season with nothing more than a few minor tweaks along the way.
While there are many ways to wear this distinctive print, today’s Fashionisto has opted for a camouflage jacket. By pairing his statement printed jacket with basic black jeans and a simple T-shirt, this Fashionisto allows the camouflage print to do all the talking. The key to pulling off the camouflage print is to combine it with neutral coloured staple pieces. This casual ensemble is perfect for on campus as the print is masculine and is easier to work into your wardrobe compared to other prints such as floral. If you don’t feel being bold with camouflage is your style, try using the print as an accent rather than a statement. This is a great way to avoid looking like a fashion faux pas, but still being on trend.
As today’s Fashionisto has shown, the camouflage print can be worn in a myriad of ways depending on your personal sense of style. For a military inspired look, dress for combat this spring with camouflage jackets and parkers, or try the print on a shirt or trousers to stand out from the recruits. Soldier on CollegeFashionistos!
Hint: Discharge all thoughts of poorly fitted three-quarter length cargo shorts or the full army get-up, instead think of adapting the camouflage print on more unconventional terrain, such as a tailored suit.
