Get the Look: Helen Flanagan Chic in Camo

This season camo isn't about blending in, it's about standing out. Helen Flanagan, wearing her chic camo scarf and strappy camo stilettos, shows how to turn this traditionally masculine pattern into something fun and flirty.


The military trend did not enter the fashion world in a flash of army green and stomping combat boots. In 2008 designers like Alexander McQueen and Moschino sent models down the runway in Russian tsar-esque white and navy coats decked with gold embellishments and flared out in a romantic cut. By 2010 the trend shifted to America. Flowy coats became tough trenches accompanied by battered combat boots. Everything was army green. The trend turned tough and marched down the Spring/Summer 2010 runways of designers such as Balmain and Jean Paul Gaultier. But the military moment didn't end there; it evolved. Now the military trend's signature camo print stamps everything from scarves to stilettos. And we want to try them all.

Make camo the star of your outfit by pairing it with neutrals: Add camo accessories to your LBD. Wear camo-print pants with a black tee or blazer. Or, pair it with another print as Flanagan did with her cheetah print purse. Add feminine cuts and go for messy hair to keep it looking soft. Avoid wearing head-to-toe camoflauge unless you plan to enlist. Here are 12 camo-print pieces that will have you marching to the military trend, too.
