It's my favorite time of year fashion-wise, and I figured what better time for a Wardrobe Wednesday post?! So what's fueling my inspiration these days? Nope, not Pumpkin Spice lattes - it's something much easier to wear with your favorite shirt. (Not to say a well-placed coffee stain can't be a fashion statement in itself. I've sported Coffee Spot Chic more times that I care to admit.) Rather, it's my current favorite pants - these Camo Rockstar Jeans from Old Navy! And big bonus - they won't show coffee spills!
I tend to live in jeans all winter and having an option that isn't typical blue denim is a fun change of pace. I'm a huge fan of the mid-rise Rockstar jean and when I saw this pair in camo print, I knew they'd be a workhorse in my closet. Here's five ways I've already styled them for this cusp-of-fall season!
1// Neutral on Neutral. Mixing camo with other neutrals like gray, black or white is always a safe bet. And adding some definitively girly touches like a big, sparkly necklace and sequined clutch keep the look from being too boyish.
2// Add Some Edge. Since the camouflage pattern is historically associated with the military, it naturally pairs well with other rough & tumble pieces like a leather jacket! Balance the edgy look with a pop of color in your footwear or bag for fun impact.
3// Fuse It With Feminine. Contrast is what makes fashion fabulous, so top your camos with a frilly, feminine top! The soft blush color is also a foolproof pairing and can easily be mixed with additional patterns, like the animal print in my clutch.
4// Neon + Neutrals. Camouflage was created to blend into its surroundings. But who wants their outfit to do that?!? Paired with an equally neutral denim shirt, camo makes a perfect backdrop for bright colors like neon yellow or pink and assures you'll do anything but fade into the background.
5// Pattern Play. Yes, technically camo is a pattern, but it's definitely a subtle pattern that plays well with others! Here I mixed it with a basic stripe tee (another pattern mixing star) for a playful pairing. And because I'd had an extra shot of caffeine that morning, I threw another pattern in the mix with my gingham sneaks. You see how coffee can play a critical role in fashion now??
Look for plenty more styling ideas for these camouflage pants in the near future. Because pants that go well with coffee are good pants, indeed!
