camo is the new black

Camouflage is definitely having a moment this fall. And though I’ve always been a fan of utilitarian chic (in fact, I still have an old field bag I bought at an Army surplus store while in high school), I’m nonetheless impressed to see so many new über-chic camo looks. Here are some of my favorites . . .

I love the mix of camo and leopard here. It’s a clash that just seems to work. If you want to try it yourself, check out Sanctuary’s take on the camo sweater.



J.Crew’s fitted camo chinos look great paired with a polished schoolboy blazer.

Edith A. Miller’s mixed media camo dress is a fun way to transition from summer to fall.

Spiked plum heels not only complement these ankle-zip camo skinnies, but create a combo that’s just plain sexy. Elizabeth and James has a similar pair if you want to recreate the look.
