Camouflage Prints for Winter 2013
Gone are the days when the camouflage print was only restricted to army wear. Thanks to several fashion designers who showcased the bold print in their fall 2013 collection, which made camouflage one of the most fashionable prints this season. However, the camouflage print isn't very easy to wear, I bet a lot of you are wondering how to style it in a modern and sleek way.
First of all, you should avoid having a head-to-toe outfit in camouflage prints, it's very hard to pull off such a look, you could end up looking like a member of the armed forces. Camouflage prints should be worn in moderation, just pick one piece of clothing and incorporate it within your outfit. For example, replace your go-to denim jacket with a camo-print one, you can also reach for a camo-print pair of pants instead of your typical blue jeans. Camouflage prints look best when styled with neutrals, denim, black leather, etc., however, don't be afraid to try new combinations and clash it with solid colors. If you're aiming to mix camouflage with other prints, be careful as the result can be messy.
The camouflage print adds a tough element to your look, so create a contrast by pairing it up with feminine silhouettes and textures. If you're afraid to go all the way with camouflage prints, then opt for accessories like a handbag or a pair of shoes, which gives you the chance to experiment with the trend in an easy and minimal way.
