Let’s Style: A Camo Jacket
1.) Urban Rocker
Garter T-shirt, Disco pants, Platform Combat Boots
For this look I paired another one of my closet staples the American Apparel Disco Pant with a sexy cropped garter style t-shirt. With the cooler months coming it’s time to whip out ye ole faithful Dr Martens. I love the Jaden style because, well I love a platform boot. I finished the look off with a mini bag.

2.) Mixed Prints
Leather Shorts, Snakeskin Boots, Mini Clutch
Remember earlier when I mentioned that Camo is a neutral and can be matched with any print? With this look I did exactly that. I eliminated a shirt altogether and wore my jacket as a button shirt. So it didn’t look baggy I cinched the waist with a vintage style waist belt. I went with leather shorts and a pair of my favorite snakeskin thigh high boots. I chose a mini bag and simply tucked the chain in to make it a clutch.

4.) Everyday Style
Oversized T-Shirt, Leggings, Sneakers
During the colder days this is a look I would wear as a go to everyday look. I paired an oversized graphic t-shirt, a comfy pair of leggings, and my beloved black high top Chuck Taylor. I went with a red bag to pull the pop of color from my graphic tee. This look can be alternated with any graphic tee (remember Camo is a neutral). From there pick a color in the shirt and choose a bag of that color. Simple styling.

I paired another closet staple a ribbed midi dress with a baseball cap, oversized glasses, and dad style sneakers. To give the look a POP of color I went with a neon oversized clutch.
