Camouflage jackets
Camo jackets are a must-have in your wardrobe. What was essentially regarded as a battlefield wear has now moved on to both the streets and the runways. While a lot of celebs are sporting this look, one must avoid wearing it with slacks or leggings depending on your body structure. It's a safe wear and one can't go wrong with it.

Camo shirt dresses

A camo print shirtdress can work well both as a casua,l yet chic outfit which translates well into something more stylish. The trick is to team up the dress with the right kind of shoes. Team it with a belt and heels or wedges, depending on your comfort level and you can make a simple look glamourous, or tone it down by wearing a simple pair of flats.

Camouflage pants
Classic camouflage was restricted to pants and leggings, but if you love fashion and its many variations, you must've noticed it going through a transition of its own. Now available in several different shades and hues, if you like experimenting with style and prints, you should add a classic pair of camouflage print pants to your wardrobe.
