Camo has become a popular trend over the past couple years and it does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. I see that camo can be a fun look for us females and really it can make us feel strong and powerful as well. Camo has a certain connotation that comes with wearing it which includes power and strength. However, I don't know about you but when I see it I also envision a traditional shoulder. Yes, women can be soldiers and can make great soldiers but the military uniform typically has a very masculine look. My concern with the camo trend is how to make it look less soldier (because I am not a soldier and don't want to take that recognition away from our actual soldiers). I do not have the mental or physical strength to be in the military. So my goal in wearing camo is in how to make it look feminine and fun.
One way I do this is by adding a nice heel or wedge to add some sexy height. When was the last time you saw a soldier wearing a heel? They were combat boots. I wear boots only if they have a heel. If you wear a flat shoe, I would pair it with a pointy toe or with some bling like crystals/jewels. I would personally try to avoid loafers or mules that have masculine qualities because it just enhances the masculine nature of a camo pattern.
I paired my pants with a plain tank which on its own can look masculine but I paired it with a nice long necklace to add some extra feminine bling. I would pair my camo with some nice jewelry and a plain-ish top. It is hard to match a different pattern to a camo pattern so simple, neutral colors are best. I prefer statement necklaces, long necklaces and a nice pair of earrings.
I say, whatever makes you feel strong, sexy, powerful, or overall confident is a good choice. If you feel best going in full camo gear and combat boots, then great! More power to you and I totally support your decision, but if you are looking for a way to still make it look girly, then adding those girly pieces will definitely help!
