There are a number of ways to wear camouflage prints this season. Camouflage prints are back in the spotlight and are ideal for working urban casual looks. A camouflage print jacket can look grungy, but you can also work a more polished look with this season’s refined take on the trend. Embrace this military-inspired trend and check out these ways to wear camouflage prints, as seen on the streets.
One of the most popular ways to wear camouflage prints is on your top half. It could be a t-shirt, jacket or, in this case, a sweater. We spotted this chic camouflage print outfit over on the Topshop Tumblr. The camouflage print sweater has been given a dressed up feel with the addition of a khaki pencil skirt, cut out heels, and a chain link handbag. This outfit is just one example of how to style up your camouflage prints this season.
Camouflage print pants might sound like something that only those in the army would wear but you can make them urban-appropriate. Instead of a cargo pant, choose pants with a straight or skinny cut. Christine of My Style Pill was featured on the Modcloth Tumblr wearing her camouflage print pants with a denim vest and tan ankle boots. A bright yellow handbag adds a pop of colour to this urban casual look.
This outfit that was snapped by Topshop’s street style photographers combines the camouflage and sport luxe trends. The camouflage print t-shirt dress looks super sporty when teamed with a pair of black and white trainers. The blue camouflage print is also a nice alternative to the iconic khaki style. If you can’t find a camouflage print dress you could try and recreate this look by wearing an oversized camouflage print t-shirt as a dress instead.
Jules from Sincerely Jules wears her vintage camouflage print t-shirt with slim-fitting cargo pants for a very military-inspired look. She also wears a denim jacket tied around the waist, which adds a grunge touch. The strappy heels and structured handbag, however, are quite dressy touches.
A camouflage print skirt can be a girly alternative to the usually tomboy-ish camouflage clothing available. Heather was photographed by Mark Iantosca for Refinery 29 wearing a blue and grey camouflage print skater skirt. She teamed it with a grey sweater, patent lace-up shoes, and rectangular side bag for a casual daytime look.
Channel the nineties and team a camouflage print jacket with a pair of overalls. This grunge-inspired outfit was snapped by David Nyanzi for ASOS’s Fashion Finder section. Hi-top Chuck Taylor’s, a croc-print side bag, and bandana headband complete this relaxed outfit.
Camouflage prints can be pretty distinctive, so if you want to wear the trend but don’t want to be too obvious about it then try prints in lighter colours. Anton Lombardi snapped this wintertime outfit for ELLE magazine. The light camouflage print jeans peeking out from underneath a classic navy coat add a trend-based touch to an otherwise polished outfit. A slouchy side bag, black ballet flats, and grey ribbed beanie complete this cold-weather outfit.
Add a bit of military-inspired edge to your outfit with some cool camouflage prints this season. Go grunge in an oversized camouflage print coat or try something a bit different with a dark blue print. Which of these street style snaps do you like best?
