The Military Camo & Army Print Inspired Trend

The military, camo and army print trend has crept upon us in full swing right now. I wasn’t 100% sure that I liked it at first as I have always found the print to be quite masculine and very unfeminine. I started out with the khaki jacket with leather sleeves style (which you can see here) and as it turns out, I really loved that, so I’ve now opted into the full camo print jacket and I was suprised to say that I actually love it. It is pretty masculine, but if paired with a dark colour and other feminine silhouettes like heels, skin tight jeans and jewellery, it manages to make it work really well.

Have you tried the camo trend yet? I spotted Kate Moss in a jacket, similar to mine below, last week and she looked amazing. Since she has worn the military trend, I can tell it’s going to take off in full force and we will be seeing the print everywhere soon! All of the pieces above (except for number 3) are from Topshop, so you can buy those by clicking here, while number 3 is from Pull & Bear. Also, the below images are a sneak preview of an outfit post to come! What do you think?

      I was undecided too, but I came around to the idea, I think it totally depends on what you wear it with and what type of jacket it is.

    I love the military inspired stuff and specially the colour, but don’t really like to wear the camo print itself (maybe because i’m a military brat and still live in a military based village, so i see it all the time..) but khaki green is one of my favorite colours!!!

    I’m hosting my first ever Giveaway on the blog! Would love if you would check it out Lorna!!

    Have a great day!
