I am slapping myself for getting rid of any and all camo circa 1998. I could have totally styled those items into my wardrobe right now. Not lying.
Camo is kind of like leopard print to me, it’ll always be in style, when worn in moderation, obviously. It saddens me to even have to explain that.
Getting back to the purchase – I recently picked up some leggings from Aritzia (a store that I have a pretty solid love/hate relationship with). I own a couple pairs of the same style and found that they lasted long, kept their stretch and didn’t gather pilling after time. I believe that they’re actually TNA brand (not a fan but their leggings are pretty great). They’re approx $30 a pair, so they’re totally reasonable in price, especially for a pair of good quality leggings.
My style focuses around casual chic these days, so dressing them up with a pair of minimalist heels and a T shirt seemed like a good choice. I’m all about the either/or. If you’re going to throw on a pair of heels or pumps, then top if off with a basic tee or an oversized knit. On the other hand, if you’re going to throw on a pair of Chucks or combat boots, then pair it with a faux, a blazer or a more fitted top.
Here’s how I styled them…
White Tee/J Crew
Sleeveless Faux Vest/Aritzia
Bag/Rebecca Minkoff MAC
The options are endless. I’m loving the mix of dressy and sporty. I don’t think I can break away from it. Here are some suggestions on styling…
