Spring is the season for getting in touch with nature and basking in the foliage. It’s also the season where life outside becomes a little more palatable than the winter and autumn, with extraordinary events and festivals celebrating the return of warmer surroundings.
Of course, one part of being outside is ensuring you’ve got the right outfit to match your surroundings. We’ve spoken a lot about the benefits of having a seasonal wardrobe to theme your outfits with. However, there’s probably one type of clothing piece we have yet to really talk about – camo pattern.
Camo pattern clothing is one of those trends that comes in ebbs and waves, staying unpopular for a little while before coming back with a vengeance. We’re currently in a period where camo pattern is on-trend like never before, so it makes sense to discuss what you can do to make camo pattern clothing work for you!
In today’s blog, we’ll be diving into the various ways that you can style a camo pattern piece for your next spring outing!
One of the most popular ways to integrate a little camo into your next outfit is by using a graphic tee. T Shirts are perfect for warmer weather, with graphic tees being especially suited to spring's fun and carefree nature!
Graphic tees also provide a great way to break up the pattern with imagery and stylings that minimize the visual impact if you find camo too strong visually.
Biker shorts are fantastic ways to explore patterns and colors you typically wouldn’t, making camo-pattern gear more casual and inoffensive. Biker shorts have also made an easy transition to everyday wear as part of the “athleisure” trend, making them fantastic bottoms for warmer days.
Simply pair with a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of sandals, and you’ll be ready to go!
One of the great aspects of the camo pattern is its ability to embrace earthy tones. Browns, dark greens, grays, and even yellows all combine to give you the ideal backdrop for a stunning necklace or bracelet!
Long-form necklaces offer the best results, creating a cute layering effect with the complex pattern of the camo underneath. For ideal color combinations, stick with a darkly colored necklace that will stand out from the colors without adding any further visual complexity to your ensemble.
Try sticking with delicate pieces that can counter the roughness implied by the earthy tones and visual patterning for earrings. Delicate designs in gold or silver work the best for this approach.
Camo-pattern clothing often comes with an expectation that the person wearing it will be energetic and ready for anything that comes their way. You can lean into that expectation by using your footwear to enhance the visual further.
The best way to do that is with a pair of cute sneakers! Sneakers always look great as part of a casual outfit and can look especially perfect when paired with a camo outfit for an outfit that feels playful and colorful.
