The Polarizing Print People Are Wearing Again
Ah, good ol' camo. Whether you like it or not, it keeps coming back. While some would argue that it never really goes away, it's without a doubt more ubiquitous some years than others, and its popularity has been undeniable this year. And we're not talking just on the runways. Camo has also been popping up left and right on the street style and celebrity scenes and throughout every retailer's stock of new arrivals. This could be attributed to the fact that military and '90s grunge are significant F/W 16 trends, which in turn naturally has designers turning to camouflage.
If you prefer a more feminine aesthetic, not to fear—there are so many camo pieces on the market this season that all styles are represented. And you can always incorporate camouflage pieces into your existing wardrobe, so if a pleated midi skirt and velvet heels with a camo tee feels comfortable for you, go with it. Our verdict? Camo is surprisingly versatile and can be styled in ways that make it feel fresh, so give the polarizing print a chance.
