Camouflage has been in the fashion scene for quite a while but this fall, it seems to be even more in the spotlight than usual. This is a good thing for moms who seek on-trend clothing that is both versatile and casual, and are bored with their mostly solid-colored closet. The camouflage pattern will add personality and variety to your everyday ensembles without being too “loud” or obnoxious.
Try Some Color
Camo is most often seen in hues of earthy greens and browns but, this season, designers are offering it alternate hues like blue and pink. Don’t be afraid to give them a try. Again, because the patterns are often made with different shades of the same color family the result is subtle yet interesting.
Accessorize With It
If a camo shirt or dress is too much for you, then show your fashion know-how by accessorizing with it. There are plenty of scarves and jewelry, and even hats and shoes, that represent the trend.
How To Wear It
You can always wear camo with other pieces that are the same color, or in the same color family, as those in the pattern. A green- or brown-based pattern can work with similar shades of green, brown, beige, black, white or grey – basically all the neutrals. Looking to pair your neutral camo with a color? Choose hues that would pair well with the camo colors if they were solids (i.e. pink with green camo, orange with brown camo).
