A few weekends ago, I noticed that my boyfriend was wearing a pair of cargo camo shorts.
It made me think. One second I was appreciating how Ambercrombishly cute he looked in them, the next minute my mind went off on a tangent, considering camouflaged military issue fatigues and how they were originally designed with the intent to blend in and merge with a soldier's natural surroundings.
Camo has since become a popular pattern choice for the rest of the general population, but if you dare wear head to toe camouflage in public, you won't be blending in, you'll be standing out, soldier.
I dig camouflage, but as long as you are a civilian who is not on active duty, your outfit should be limited to one and only one camouflage patterned piece at a time. Camo shorts, okay. Camo shorts, camo hat, camo jacket and congrats - you're a real American hero, G.I. Joe.
Lately I've noticed a camouflage montage of camo shoes for the spring and summer seasons which is a perfect way for a girl to incorporate a hint of camo into her ensemble, without going full on shaved-head, one-arm pushupping, Demi Moore à la G.I. Jane.
Allow me to call to your attention these Taffie Camo Platforms from Chinese Laundry that couldn't be cuter with their criss cross camo detail, metal studs and thick wooden heel.
