Trend Alert: All About Camouflage!

May
18

I have been obsessing over camouflage and I’m definitely not the only one!  Camouflage is called many things-camo, army, khaki–but at the end of the day, it’s pretty much just a pattern that is seen on military uniforms, using colors like hunter green, light green, etc.  Camo is a definite addition that will toughen up any outfit.  Check out how Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, Rita Ora and Kylie Jenner styled their camo!

1. Camo Jacket

A camo jacket is a great way to make any outfit look edgy.  For this look, the key is all about fit–you don’t want your jacket to be too fitted.  The jacket should be loose and even a little baggy.  The reason is that when it’s baggy, it tends to look more casual and effortless.

Lily Aldridge wore her army jacket with a white tee, black jeans and suede gray boots.  This is such a simple look but the army jacket really gives the whole look dimension and color.  Instead of being a simple black and white look, the army jacket gives it a cool girl vibe.  The suede boots and black handbag are the perfect accessories to complete the overall look.

I was hoping the camouflage would hide me from the paps… 😂

Rita Ora took the army look to another level, pairing her oversized jacket with leggings, white sneakers and a baseball cap.  She wore her baggy jacket with leggings–the perfect combo because they balance each other out.  Adding the white sneakers and hat adds an athletic touch to the look, and the result is nothing less than cool chic!

Kim Kardashian wore her army jacket to Kanye West’s Adidas show, and she definitely rocked the look!  This look is all about texture and fit!  She chose an oversize army jacket with capri brown leggings, a crop top and sheer top.  This look is probably a little too much for everyday–unless you switch the bottoms with black leggings (that go all the way down to your ankles).  I actually really love the sheer turtleneck under the crop top but you can also wear it the other way–with the crop top underneath the sheer turtleneck.  You could also switch the crop top with a similar colored bralet underneath.  The key to this look is the layers–and I love how Kim pulled her jacket sleeves up so you can see the sheer turtleneck. She finished off the look with dark beige booties–such a chic touch!

Kylie Jenner wore her army jacket with black jeans a a black top, finishing off the look with black booties.  This look is all about the army jacket and by keeping the rest of the look black, it keeps the focus on the camo.  This is a great daytime look but it will also look great in the evening as well because of the booties.

2. Army Pants

Army patterned pants are another great addition to your wardrobe and on the plus side, you can wear them year round!  Below is two different takes on the camo pants-version one is fitted skinny jeans, while version two is baggy high waisted cargo inspired pants.

Cara Delevingne took her army patterned jeans and styled it with a moto jacket and black tee. She finished the look off with hunter green combat boots and sunnies. The moto jacket with the camo patterned jeans is a great combo because while the jacket is fancy, the jeans are casual–giving off a chic vibe.

Kim Kardashian really loves her camo! This time she styled her camo high waisted pants with a white crop top, black duster coat and hunter green heeled boots.  The high waisted pants balance the revealing crop top.  The white crop top is the perfect feminine touch to the overall military tough look, as well as adding heeled boots.

3. Camo Shirt

If you’re not ready to commit to an army jacket or pants, try the next best thing–an army patterned shirts.  Rihanna and Cara show us two easy ways to take a camo shirt and make it look good!

Rihanna wore her cropped army jacket with cuffed boyfriend jeans and army patterned heels, adding in a backwards gold hat.  Rihanna took the camo and just went with it–choosing to match the heels with the shirt.  By choosing loose fitting boyfriend jeans keeps the look from being too revealing.  She keeps the look sexy by wearing a cropped shirt, showing off her stomach.

Cara decided to style her army patterned shirt with a leather jacket and jeans, adding in a backwards cap and blue-green sunglasses.  This is such a fun look! The key to this look is keeping the main pieces simple–the jeans and jacket, while adding in fun accessories, like the sunglasses and hat.

4. Camouflage Patterned Hat

Rihanna shows us all how to take camo and make it fancy!  She wore her camo trucker hat with a high neck black crop top and mini skirt, finishing off the look with black heels, red lips, and a gold necklace.  She kept her hair up so that the main focus is the high neck top and gold choker, and added a leather jacket in case the night gets cold.
