Camouflage In Style....

Hi Divas , lets talk about Camouflage..... I’m sure you remember certain things that you loved as a child and that brings back a wave of nostalgia after a mere mention. camo print/plain short, pants, denim, jackets,some short skirt and shorts we call combats... the list goes on, but I am most nostalgic about clothes. Big surprise! As a little girl, I still remember the Camouflage denim shorts with floral ruffles, my favorite colored Vans and Converses, and of course, the “skort”! So of course I was ecstatic to find this short at Zara Site a few months ago. This skort is asymmetrical with a modern edge, definitely an upgrade from my floral skort I wore so many years ago. Needless to say, I am a happy girl in this today. What is your favorite childhood item? Not surprisingly, Vogue Magazine picked up on the utility of camouflage prints in 1943. Before this, the camo print was used solely for literal camouflage purposes in war, and was then transformed into a reoccurring and popular fashion trend.
This season, camouflage has made its return by returning from the battlefield and becoming couture. In other words, now is the time to raid your grandfather’s hunting gear and transform it into something fashionable and wearable.

I got my first taste of this season’s camo a couple months ago when I went shopping. I found a fantastic camo jacket with bedazzled jewels covering the collar.  I instantly fell in love with how chic it looked, especially when camo has the potential to look like it belongs on your brother’s action figure t-shirts and pajama bottoms.
After I saw the jacket, I started to see camo subtly making its appearance in fashion blogs, malls, online shops and magazines. I then began to wonder how I could incorporate camo into my wardrobe...

And here's how i wore mine;
