We may spend plenty of our time here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone covering the latest trends and styles, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get a rush every time a new trend comes along. On the contrary, we were thrilled to see that camouflage is having a major moment this fall, partly because we like a good fashion challenge. Yes, camouflage is definitely a tricky trend to pull off, but with a little stamina and some inspiration from stars like Gwen Stefani and Sarah Jessica Parker, we have no doubt you will master it, so click through to today’s Trend Report to get started!
Who is trying this look?
You definitely have to have a fearless sense of fashion to try camouflage, so we weren’t surprised to see that pop star Gwen Stefani, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, and radio personality Fearne Cotton were leading the way.
How are they wearing it?
As you can see, there is definitely a trick to wearing camouflage. Because it is such a strong and in-your-face print, you should allow it to take center stage by making sure the rest of your outfit is somewhat low-key—for example, notice how Sarah has paired her camo pants with just a simple tank top and ballet flats. You should also pick pieces that come in the same color family (green) or neutral hues. For instance, Gwen has paired her camouflage jumpsuit with an army-green jacket, Sarah has added a green tank top, and Fearne has paired her camo jacket with charcoal grey pieces. By sticking to these key rules, each of these women has allowed their camouflage piece to take the spotlight without detracting from the overall look.
How can I try this look?
We have picked out three pieces that we just love—and we are sure you will too, no matter what your style is. If you consider yourself a glamour girl at heart, make sure you pick up the Camo Sequined Jersey T-Shirt ($100) by Michael Michael Kors. When paired with skinny black jeans and ankle booties, you will instantly take your outfit to the next level. If you prefer a casually-cool look, check out Current/Elliott’s The Ankle Skinny Jeans in Camo ($139). You can pair these with anything from a simple white tee to a chunky turtleneck jumper, which means you can wear them well beyond this trend’s expiry date. Last, but certainly not least, if you lean towards a chic, sophisticated look, check out Repetto’s Camouflage Ballerina Flats ($260). They will add a subtly edgy twist to your outfit, but more importantly you can pair them with anything from a black maxi dress to a pair of leather skinny pants and a blazer. Happy shopping!
