[Full outfit details for this look HERE.]
Over the past 4-5 years I always get a great response when I share a new, cute camo piece that I’ve found and am wearing a lot! So I thought it would be good to do a full out post all about how to incorporate the pattern into your daily looks. Funny thing, I recently saw a comment on my IG saying “camo must be the new thing” and it made me realize that I see it so differently! I’ve consistently styled camo pieces into my wardrobe for so long and I find it almost comical because I grew up in a small, small town where “everyone” [haha] wore camo regularly except me and handful of others. I don’t think I owned anything – and once I moved out of Arkansas that changed haha. I found that I liked mixing it into my wardrobe because it gives a little edge when you dress super girlie or preppy – it can be an unexpected pattern. Lately though, I just am more of an ‘olive’ lover -so I really enjoy wearing it and I can always find matching pieces for Luke! I am making him match w/my while he doesn’t know any better! 😉
I went through the past year or year and a half and gathered a few of my favorite photos styling camo into my everyday outfits so I thought I’d compile them all into one post! Additionally, I found some CUTE pieces online so I am linking them all in the widget below!
5 TIPS FOR STYLING/BUYING CAMO
-Don’t overthink it. Keeping it simple is the key *sometimes*! The pattern makes a statement for itself so just pairing camouflage jeans with a v-neck tee and some simple jewelry can be really cute!
-Try mixing it with neutral colors. I love pairing camo w/black, chambray, white, & any taupe color!
-You don’t always have to keep it casual – you’ll see in the photos below I have paired leggings with camo but I have always worn heels and a ruffled top with camo!
-When you are styling camo for cooler temps, use the pattern as a way of layering! I tend to wrap denim jackets and chambray tops around my waist just in case it gets cold & I also like the look of the textures mixed.
-Be picky about the material / style of the camo piece! I like more basic pieces that are good quality! I have seen camo pieces that are not well made and they just never look as good! Since I don’t see camo as trendy I don’t mind spending $40 for a pair of joggers since I know I can style them many ways and get long term wear out of them!
My tee is super old and no longer in stock but there are similar HERE.
These joggers sold out the day I posted about them [HERE] but I will watch to see if they come back! Until then THIS is a great option – I almost bought them because they are thicker and not distressed.
