Falling Into Camo

Growing up in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest, camo was worn out of necessity rather than style.Β But over the past few years, camo has continued to put its stamp on fashion. And although designers have done a great job at reinventing the camo look, there’s still a fine lineΒ whenΒ using this print as “street” style rather than “woodsman” style. Here is just one way I like to wear camo to give it that stylish edge…

For this particular look, I wanted it to be edgy and chic. So, naturally, heels and distressed black skinny jeans were my first thought! And since we’re on the brink of Fall, even though its still a million degrees outside, I went for a heeled black bootie. Honestly though, you can never go wrong with black booties and black jeans. These are staples that should be in every woman’s closet. And if you aren’t into the distressed jean look, go for a solid black pair. Black jeans are always classic in the fashion world. Plus, they make you look super slim! The black booties I’m wearing are Prada from a few years back. And even though they were ridiculously expensive, they are still one of my all time favorite purchases. I’ve worn them so much that I’ve had them resoled 3 times! Sadly, these are no longer available. I have, however, linked a few pair below that are very similar (and more affordable!).

On top, I decided to break up the camo with a white tank top. Keep in mind, this really isn’t necessary given the solid black on the bottom…it can absolutely be worn by itself! But, because IΒ felt like wearing this button up as a jacket that day, I chose to pair it with a white tank. This white tank top in particular is one of my faves with its cut-out asymmetric neckline. And it was super inexpensive! I love getting fun basics like this from H&M. They always have stylish clothing that’s so affordable! If the cut-out look is too funky for you, a basic white or black tank top or tee will also work πŸ˜‰

If you have other fun ideas for making camo super stylish this Fall, please share your ideas! Would love to hear form you πŸ™‚
