Go Camo Chic
Hey, ladies! Until just recently, I would have said, “Me in camo, what do you think I am, a redneck?” LOL! Right? Well, true and false…. it all depends on what type of camo print you pick, the style of the garment and the color pattern of the camo. This is way out of the box for me, but I like it when it is done in a feminine chic manner. When styled properly, it really doesn’t scream “camo”, but presents itself as just another printed pattern palette. Let’s have some fun with camo!
Gray is not my best color, but with darker and lighter tones mixed into this pattern, it works as a fashionable and flattering print. If you do not like yourself in a particular color, just add in an accessory jewelry piece, scarf or jacket in a comfortable color and you will see that it does begin to work with your coloring and style.
I paired this tunic length knit top with a simple pair of comfortable black leggings, the VIV leggings from Amazon are fabulous and affordable, great for everyday wear as well as workouts — all sizes, many color choices. The black ankle boots dress up the lower half of the oufit, while the white statement necklace and earrings feminize the upper part of the outfit.

These leggings have a smooth, high waistband and not see-through, I ordered up one size, but could have worn my actual size for less length because I am short – I will be ordering more colors, easy wash and wear!
Bringing the Camo Look Together
The keyword here is “feminine” for camo, accessories do make the difference. I think the stigma with camo is that your accessory must be a rifle on your shoulder to go hunting for your dinner, LOL. This does not have to be the case when you accessorize for a soft chic look.
You know how I love my Fitbit with my upgraded animal print band. I left it on with this outfit because it is subtle and I do not always like a “matchy-matchy” look. Shopping links are here and below the next few photos…

Camo Chic Styling
I love the rounded, longer hemline on this knit tunic. Once again, I found a great selection of tops on Amazon and this one is no exception. I did go up one size because I wanted to make sure there was plenty of length and nothing too snug around my “fuller” areas. The shopping link for this top is HERE and below:

My ankle boots are older and by Lifestride. I did find a similar Lifestride black ankle boot on Amazon for you HERE and below:
Feminize Camo with Accessories
Whoa! I do not like close-ups, Mr. DeMille, LOL! But I did want you to see how this floral statement necklace softens the look of the camo, plus with it and the earrings being white, it further softens and brightens the camo for a more feminine feel. The Amazon shopping links for the necklace and earrings are HERE and HERE, as well as below:
The camo look becomes a touch more casual and comfortable just by changing the shoes to black loafers as I have done below. Mine are older Clarks and are very comfortable. I found a very similar pair for you HERE and below on Amazon:

Break out of your comfort zone and try some camo! You will be surprised at how much you enjoy it, let me know what you think.
