Camo, the comeback kid.

It is said that the word camouflage comes from the French word camoufler which means “to disguise”.  When this pattern is used in the military, it makes sense that the soldiers wanted to be hidden, but the same cannot be said for how the pattern is being used today.  The use of camo in street fashion is meant to be seen. Now more than ever, I am seeing this pattern pop up in the mainstream and I’m loving it.  Different color combinations and uniques applications are helping camo make a comeback. “Don’t call it a comeback…I’ve been here for years…”  Sorry, just had to drop a little L.L. Cool J.

I’ve gathered together some of my favorite pieces for summer and fall 2017.  Let me show you what I’ve got.

Wear it as a shirt, wear it as a jacket…either way the Camouflage Utility Shirt-Jacket from J. Crew will have you looking good and on trend. Perfect for spring/fall seasons or layered with a scarf for the chillier months.

I personally own five different pairs of camo pants.  I know….I’ve got a problem.  Then I saw these super cute pair of Camo Girlfriend Chinos from Gap and realized that I might just need one more pair.

Also from H & M is this great little Camo Print Fanny Pack.  I found this in the men’s section, but it can be clearly worn by anyone.  This bag is just as cute as it is convenient.
