It’s hard to believe spring is just weeks away! I am sure you are just as anxious as I to ditch your parka for this season's spring must-haves.
One of spring's top trends is camoflage, but before you go searching the army surplus store in you neighbourhood, note that this trend is all about a feminine take on the well-known print.
Here are a few camouflage inspired looks for you to consider:
Simple Camo Accents
If you are a camouflage virgin and still trying to embrace the trend, a great way to incorporate it into your wardrobe is to pair it with a neutral colour palate. Givenchy’s roses camouflage Napa leather bag, for example, highlights a softer approach. You can also put your best foot forward with Valentno’s rock-stud neon camo pump (great with a pair of dark skinny jeans) or Stella McCartney’s casual light denim blue camo print loafers.
Get flirty with camo
For the camo veteran, it’s time to change things up a bit. You have outworn and overdone the classic shades of green. Although it isn't out of style, you can add a new and improved camo motif to your repertoire. Carven showed us that there is a sexier side to camo this season. Where pink, lavender and mint camouflaged fabrics with embroidered appliqué© accentuate asymmetrical patterned dresses and A-line skirts. Another fun and flirtatious approach is by Tracy Reese who shows a way to standout with her electric modern camo print dress. Alexander McQueen embraces a utilitarian kind of vibe with large utility pockets and belts on a short fitted light camo jacket you can either wear as a layered piece or skip the fuss and wear it on it's own.
This is a great opportunity to wear a little piece of him, with Valentino's luxury fluo colour sneakers designed for men. Just like boyfriend jeans, wearing his sneakers is equally sexy. You may have noticed the harem pant is back so why not combine two great trends together with R13's asymmetrical harem classic green camo denim pants. If camo is your everyday obsession try a light weight jacket. Forever 21 has your favourite camo jacket at an affordable price.
Jane, you have now completed basic training. We hope you go out there and show them who is boss and rule the streets like it's your runway.
