3 Ways to Style Camo Pants

Midwest Threads

Camo is trending. I’m not going to lie, I put off trying the trend as long as possible — camo just reminds me of my dad going to work in the garage or going hunting. Alas, I broke down and recently snagged a very inexpensive pair. TIP: Don’t spend a ton until you’re sure you’ll wear the trend or that it will stick around for a while. While some say camo is technically a neutral, it’s still a pattern, so you might be wondering, “How do I style camo pants?” Today, I’m showing you a camo pants styled three different ways.

Those who know me know I wear vests with nearly everything. They add warmth and add a little something extra to any outfit, dressy to casual. The green in these pants looks great paired with purple/mauves, so I incorporated those colors in the  shoes and  vest. Keep the sweater neutral -- black, white or cream -- but feel free to add some texture, like this  ribbed sweater.

If you work in a more casual environment,  camo pants can totally work for the office. Throw on a classic boyfriend blazer, heels and a  pretty cami, and you’re set. A pale pink blazer goes well with the green camo. If this is too casual for your office, this look is also perfect for brunch or a fun weekend look. Swap out the  mules  for some snakeskin sneakers, and you’ve got extra fun weekend wear.

Will definitely be wearing these pants casual for the most part, and there’s nothing better than a t-shirt and  denim jacket  combo. I love pairing black with them and letting the pattern take center stage. I have several colors of  these super soft tees — the best basic. And I can’t say enough good things about  these slip-ons. They’re amazingly comfortable and go with nearly everything.
