Ladies…what’s the new show off piece currently on high trend alert? CAMO!
Camo is the new denim everyone is looking for due to its stylish practicality. Just like denim, you can get 10 times the wear because it’s a print worth repeating. You can wear the same camo pants 50 different times and style it 50 different ways – and it’s more than ok for securing multiple “drip drips” on the gram.
Camo is the canvas for an artsy fashion “It Girl” that loves to style & wow. The fatigue color palettes allow you to mix, match and blend print because it’s a neutral base. You can really express your creativity by slaying a unique camo stretch, fit and cut that’s right for you.
The challenge statement presented for today’s street style connoisseur is “If you want to show me who you are in fashion, style this camo print.”
HOW TO STYLE YOUR CAMO
It’s really about mixing and matching with the right pieces to feminize the look. The key question to drive your camo styling is “How do I make this look feminine and give it lady like direction?” A feminine approach can include pairing your camo piece with ruffles, sequin, chiffon, a stylish coat, or a sexy heel.
Green camo is the easiest to work with. But keep in mind – we’re not rocking camo for combat. Camo is all about love not war. However, when you slay this look, that’s how you can “Be All You Can Be” lol.
CAMO STYLING RULES:
A camo top should be paired with skinny jeans instead of a wide leg. Camo bottoms should be paired with a feminine cut top, instead of a boxy cut. Any tee worn with camo bottoms should also be lady like tight and fitting.
WHAT EVENTS ARE BEST FOR CAMO:
Camo is perfect for weekend plans which could include tailgating and game day, homecomings, day parties, club lounging, festivals and concerts. For any of these festivities you can be sure that camo would fit the bill.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THIS LOOK WORKS FOR YOU?
EVERBODY can wear camo. Any size, any complexion, it doesn’t matter at all.
WHAT CELEBRITIES HAVE BEEN KILLING THIS LOOK?
The 3 that come to mind based on how they’ve been killing my timeline are Beyonce, Kim K and Monica. When they stepped out in camo they did not come to play.
HOW DOES THIS LOOK MAKE A STATEMENT FOR THE CULTURE?
Camo pushes street style culture to the max. Its #BadAzz with femininity and disruption. We’re taking military garment and combining a military mindset with a lady like styling approach for unpredictable contrast.
Ladies we finally have an item worth repeating and wearing over and over again without being called out! Camo has gone viral and is flying off the racks, as fashionistas are constantly looking for it to creatively make a fashion statement. Camo has become art – and if Picasso were alive today, he would re-create the Mona Lisa in a sexy fitting camo top with no chill.
