Camo Love?

Alright, I may be changing my thoughts on Camouflage.  I've always thought Camo wasn't "me", but perhaps I'm seeing things differently now??  It all started a couple weekends ago when my Sister picked up a great Camo Pencil Skirt from Banana Republic Outlet.  I'd love to link you guys to it, but I can't find it online...sorry!!  The skirt is really quite fabulous in its color & length, & it truly fits my Sister's personality & wardrobe style.  Since then, we've talked about all the ways she can wear her new purchase - from creams to blues & grays, & even purples, & of course chambray's & denim!

Camouflage print is really a neutral print, much the same as you would think of Leopard print.  So, let's talk about its possibilities, shall we?


Camo Print & Chambray Shirt
Button down top / Dana Buchman lined boots / Topshop leather coin purse / Stone jewelry, $27 / Kensie two tone necklace / Pyramid stud earrings

This is actually the exact skirt my Sister did get - it's the only picture I could find so I apologize for the poor quality of the picture.  The skirt really looks fantastic with the shirt tucked in because it's a higher waist, but you'll just have to visualize that in your mind for now.



Professional Camo

H M white shirt, $22 / Pinko pencil skirt / Wide shoes / Miss Selfridge pink purse / Forever New sport watch, $27 / ALDO black necklace / ALDO black jewelry / ALDO gold earrings / Essie nail polish, $17

This is a very similar skirt, but the colors are a bit more bold than the one from Banana Republic.  It looks great with a classic white button down & chic heel.  The touches of Pink spice it up!



Playful Camo

Dorothy Perkins daisy top / Victoria s Secret red t shirt / Dorothy Perkins camo jacket / Boyfriend jeans / Miss Selfridge blue skinny jeans / Converse white shoes / Charlotte Russe rhinestone sandals / Juicy Couture pendant necklace / Juicy Couture gold earrings / Zad braided bracelet / Wrap bracelet / Kate Spade ring / Dorothy Perkins gold earrings

I saw this Camo Crop Jacket & thought it would be fun to wear a coral tee underneath.  Pair that up with a distressed skinny jean & choose your footwear depending on the occasion.  This creates a casual, yet eye catching outfit.


Camo Skinnies with Purple

American Eagle Outfitters graphic tee / Black vest / Tripp green jeans / Iphone case / Patrizia Pepe purple scarve / Aviators | THE LIMITED

Various shades of purple also go great with Camo Print.  Unexpected, but very fun!


Of course, if you're not quite ready to go "full-camo", you could always try a scarf (here & here) or a pair of shoes (booties here, pumps here, flats here) in Camouflage print too!


So herein lies the problem - in the process of trying to inspire you all (the readers), I end up inspiring myself.  Whereas I didn't think I would really ever wear Camouflage print, now I'm reconsidering!  Seeing all the ways you can work with it has made me look at this print differently.  Perhaps I see a purchase in my future??  I'll keep you posted :-)

  1. LOL @ the part about inspiring yourself in the process of inspiring your readers. Happens all the time to me when I think I'm doing "research" for a post I somehow end up clicking "Purchase" somewhere. Oh well. :) As usual, love the sets and ideas you've put together, especially the 2nd one. I love it with the crisp white shirt and hot pink accents. Great ideas! :) -Gina
