Updated links for 2014:I was a little hesitant about buying a pair of Gap skimmers in camo print (now sold out). Said hesitation mostly stemmed from childhood memories of "chongas" (Miami reference) who, to me, were intimidating girls who wore oversized camouflage pants (paired with tight spandex bra-tops), who snarled and growled their way through middle school. Yikes!
Luckily, in adult hood, those girls are nowhere to be found and camo print got a makeover!
You can find these pants everywhere:
*My favorite pair is by DL1961 - here.*
Loft even came out with a cool camo print skirt.
Here's my how-to for Camo wear: (under the link)
1. Building block: As with all outfits, build your outfit around one key piece. For this post we are going to start building around the camo skinny jeans.
|My eyelet top is old Juicy, but DV top is similar. or try this one also from DV.|
Here for a more affordable version.
3. Sparkle!: Accessorize with sparkles, sequins glitter, bows! This point follows the same logic as number 2. I like how gold and navy accessories look with this print.
|Earrings are from Gilt|
4. Heels Heels Heels: I think that camo skinny pants work best with heels of all sorts: skinny stilleto sandals or pointy pumps. Silver is a great color choice for this print. I also like how this look works with nude shoes, like I'm wearing in these pictures. A really feminine heel can keep things fashion forward and on trend without making it seem like you're literally about to go off into combat.
Jeans: 1969 Always Skinny Skimmer Jeans (soldout, so these are my second favorite from Gap) These run true to size. They're lightweight, and not heavy. White/Ecru pair here.
