Will Camouflage Replace Leopard !?!
Camo has become one of my favorite prints lately. I actually wondering if camouflage print will replace leopard print as the go to neutral print this fall. The print contains some of the same neutral color contained in leopard. Black and tan grounds camo as a neutral print the same way it does for leopard. Camo looks great with black, brown, and a wide variety of other colors, including, but, of course, not limited to yellow, orange, and pink.
My fave camo color scheme is the traditional camouflage print that G.I. Joe wore and any version of the print that mutes the colors rather than ramps them up. Michael Kors showed a blue fur version that is a little much for my taste, but to each is own. I am loving this blue camo t-shirt from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection. I suggest trying blue camo on small accessories like a belt, clutch or bangles.

You can find camouflage items all over the place even your local uniform shop. I actually found some men’s military camo pants at Good Will and made pillows out of them. The camo pants worn by the military is extremely durable and has held up to abuse. If you have a DIY idea, this is an awesome fabric for it.
Depending how much you love the print, I would consider investing in a piece that can cross seasons. I bought a pair of camo pumps and a pair of studded camo loafers. I am now on the hunt for a camo belt and scarf. I will not be getting any camp clothes because I plan to lose weight and don’t want to spend too much money on clothes that I will not be able to wear in 6 months. This body is going to have to go through some serious reformation before I start spending any serious cash on my wardrobe.
I have been wearing camouflage like crazy lately!
