Camouflage is a little like polka-dots or stripes, it’s never really ever ‘in-fashion’ as it’s always just there in the mix.
It’s a strong classic print that is an essential base from which fashion derives it’s bread-and-butter pieces.
A military throwback that has its style-core linked more to the scruffy than fashion-savvy man, camo has a reputation of being more for the ‘un-fashionable’ amongst males.
However, designers like Dsquared2, Tommy Hilfiger and Comme des Garcons have decided to give camouflage print it’s day of glory via interestingly coloured camo-print hooded parkas, loafers and blazers.
Camouflage isn’t just restricted to the traditional hoodies, shorts, and desert boots anymore – but is taking on a more slicker appearance in the world of mens fashion!
This pattern warrior is a fierce one, and doesn’t need to be the protagonist of your entire outfit.
Treat it with discipline and reserve it for only one item within an entire look – remembering of your whereabouts – if your actually going to war, I’d suggest head-to-toe! If your city streets orientated, then opt for a less-is-more approach!
Keep to the classics in terms of matching – khakis work well, as do a pair of good fitting jeans.
Make sure you pump-up your look via adding accessories – a leather cuff or great watch, a panama hat and some styling sunglasses will do the trick.
Layering is important for a well put together outfit, making sure your overall image has depth.
If your more a man of minimal taste and prefer to accessorize with camo instead of wear it – keep an eye out for a tote or canvas bag with this seasons print on it. That way you will refrain from looking like you’ve just escaped from a guerrilla front!
Shoes are another discrete way of paying homage to this Spring/Summer trend without overloading your look with camouflage.
From skate shoes to loafers, a variety of mens shoes are camo-adorned this season and are an easy way to incorporate this pattern without committing to anything too visually ‘loud’ and confrontational.
Whatever your tastes, the fashionable-truth remains the same – Camo is in – embrace it, play with it, wear it!
