Looks I Love: Camo

Up until this year, I had filed away camo as a print I probably wouldn't ever wear, given common materialization as coats, over-shirts and baggy boyfriend jeans. But this fall Gap offered a pair of skinny twill camo crops I could get on board with: in a hip-hugging silhouette, the military pattern is no longer grunge, but just masculine enough to show you can run with the boys. Outfitted with an ultra-girly top and delicate accessories, these Textile Elizabeth and James® jeans become the X-factor in an outfit novices will notice and the experienced emulate.

Lustrous chartreuse earrings pop against army green in a way that isn't garish like neon bar lights at night. The peachy-pink bowtied blouse softens the entire ensemble, but doesn’t negate the denim’s unshakable military-cool. The wedges' burnt orange tone is trendy in its rarity, equally contrasting with and complementing the tee's rosiness. Ankle straps accentuate and affirm the ladylike vibe set in bloom by the blouse, completing the flanking femininity that transforms fatigues.
