Coming of Age : Camouflage










For me, quite literally this post has had its coming of age. As the fashion world witnessed a re-surge of the 'Camo Print' as part of the Fall/Winter 2013 runways, I knew I had to try the trend. But I was never really convinced to invest in one. My management principals prevailed and I asked one of my dear friends serving the Indian Army to come to my fashion rescue. Interdepartmental functionality - Yes they teach that well. My friend sent me over this jacket way back in November but much to my loss I couldn't come up with the best way to adorn this power weapon. 
That's until the camouflage trend made the most anticipated comeback as part of the Spring 2013 fashion lines. Tough and strikingly powerful despite its uncomplicated nature, it comes as no surprise that camo print has stood the test of time to become fashion’s favourite form of abstraction. For me, being a starter I tried to implement it in an absolute care-free, casual and boho way. Pairing a camo print with whites, blacks and monotones is the safest and easiest way to bring out your military element. This also allows the print to shine out undisturbed. A subtle contrast and you are good, on way to make a power statement. With high-end stores bringing out textures by way of embellishments, studs and spikes infused on the print you can go edgy unperturbed. With the runaways adopting several variations in camo prints, colour combinations and fresh print overlays, I can't wait to pair this jacket in more ways than one. Certainly - Once a camo girl, always a camo girl!
