Atten-tion! Alright troops fall in line, I’m about to give you a little lesson in wearing camo like a pro!
Lately I’ve been kind of obsessed with camo, I have a camo pencil skirt that I probably wear once a week to work (My work place is kind of a relaxed dress code, so wearing a camo pencil skirt with a chambray shirt, white button up or colored blouse is perfect for my office) and a few other camo pieces that I’ve learned to “Courtneyfy” in a few different ways. Recently I purchased this amazing camo jacket (ob-sessed) and I can’t wait to share two awesome ways to wear it without looking like you’ve just enlisted while giving you a few lessons in camo.
When In Doubt- Wear White
Camo looks great paired with an otherwise monochromatic outfit. All white or All black can be camos new BFF, this is especially true if you’re nervous about giving camo a whirl and want to ease your way into it!
Add An Accessory
A camo Jacket like this might need a girly accessory to help take it to the next level – a brown belt worn over the top, bright lip or super cute french bulldog on your hip should do the trick!
Camo + Color = Crazy, but Awesome
The best way to wear camo is with a crazy color – yellow, orange, coral, red/orange all look awesome! I know orange/red & army green is kind of a crazy combination but I promise it looks ah-mazing together… I promise to prove it to you again in a later post… stay tuned!
Dress it up, Dress it Down
I think its important to note that just because you’re wearing something casual, doesn’t mean your outfit needs to be! I dressed the camo up with a dress and heels just as easily as I dressed it down with keds & jeans. The key is in the styling oh and in the initial fit of the jacket itself. Not sure if you noticed but the jacket actually has a draw string element inside, that allows you to pull and cinch the jacket right at your waist creating almost a peplum effect – its freaking genius and makes you look super small while enhancing your shape – boo-ya!
