Q&A: What to Wear with Camouflage

July 31st, 2007

Q:  I just got a pair of Chip and Pepper camouflage shorts. They’re down to the knee, and I was planning on wearing them with a basic tank top and flip flops. Do you think this trend will last?

Yes, this trend will last through the Fall. Military is a trend that doesn’t ever seem to go out of style, and the color green has been gaining in popularity. Plus, knee-length city shorts are seasonally appropriate both for Summer and Fall.

We love the look of the green camouflage print with basic black for a more traditional military look. But if you’re looking to move beyond basics, we recommend pairing the green camouflage with a bright color–such as an orange top.

As for accessories, one military-inspired item per outfit is enough, so skip the combat boots. Your idea to pair the shorts with flip flops is a great way to soften the look and make it more playful.

    I love camouflage pants! I think green looks gorgeous with a yellow trunk top to hit the city.

    Great idea, Antartica–yellow and green look great together.

    I think Camo and cream lacy detailed tops look good!
