Fall Trends// How To Wear Camo Without Looking Like Ted Nugent

Fashion, Gathered

Camo is having a moment. Quite a big moment, actually. From the high-end designers like Valentino and Prada to the accessible luxury lines a la Tory Burch and Michael Kors, camo is everywhere.

The traditional hunting print actually makes a very versatile neutral that brings more character than your typical black or tan, but wearing it the right way is key. Here I share a couple of ways I styled the trend.

Camo Does: Errand Running

Keeping the rest of your outfit toned down is important when wearing camo, as it is with any busy print. I love how everything in this look is so simple and yet you have a lot of great textures grooving together.

Camo Does: Daytime

In this example, the masculinity of the sandal is perfectly balanced by the femininity of the top and softness of the pink tones.

Camo Does: Date Night

If the words “camo” and “evening wear” even remotely close together make you think of this, I understand. (Also, burn that with fire.) But have no fear! It can be done without destining yourself for a future guest spot on Jerry Springer.
