If you're too much of a girlie-girl to try the camo-print trend, we hear you. The tough, utilitarian feel can be intimidating — unless you counter with a cool pop of vibrant color and a feminine-feeling blouse, as evidenced by this clever mash-up. We love that this styler didn't just blindly embrace the camo trend; instead she took it for a test-drive with a little more outfit creativity, playing the tough-girl jacket against a brilliant fuchsia suede on her boots and her bag. Underneath her military jacket, she worked in another feminine nod with a semisheer button-down, then finished it all with skinny dark trousers — both of which add up to a pretty classic combination. Her strategy? Don't let the camo stage a takeover on your whole look; rather, opt for a bold color palette that can stand up to the print, while more understated separates (that fit well) can help ground the whole ensemble. Loving it as much as we are? Get all the key ingredients below.
