Spring/Summer Trend: Camo

When it comes to fashion and the ways in which we dress, blending in has always been an easy option for us men; it makes us feel safe and secure and attracts no ridicule from our mates who can instead focus their attention on laughing at your weight or your football teams latest capitulation.

So the irony is not lost on us here at MFM that camouflage, a print designed to blend in with ones surroundings, has left behind the security of obscurity and now finds itself standing out as one of the trendiest pieces in the urban jungle.

We are all too aware however that when it comes to prints it can easily go horribly wrong so here’s a bullet proof guide to ensuring you avoid the pitfalls of camouflage this summer.

Camo Jackets

A camo jacket is perfect for the summer months and because they are often so lightweight, you can even wear it under a heavier jacket – we suggest a pale blue denim jacket or biker jacket. Teamed up with a pair of smart navy trousers, casual white t-shirt and a good pair of shoes helps to highlight the camo without standing out like a sore thumb.

Camo Sweaters

Perfect for the beer garden, the summer festival nights or for those of us who do not have to wear a suit to work, the camo sweater says casual like no other item of clothing. Worn with a pair of shorts and trainers, this is an ideal look for lazy summer days and proves print can be worn by us gents. And to smarten the look up you can always wear a good pair of straight fit jeans and brogues.

Camo Trousers

Wearing camo trousers is a lot trickier than wearing tops, it’s far more daring and you have to be careful you don’t look like you’ve just been to Army Cadets for the evening; it’s essential you get the rest of your outfit right so a plain white polo shirt and a pair of loafers ensure this outfit goes without a hitch. A navy blue blazer also helps to give this look a classier feel to it.

Best Of The Rest

From trainers to wallets, bags to bucket hats, the camo print is everywhere this year. If you do choose to dabble in the accessories market please make sure the rest of your outfit does not have any traces of camoflauge, get the balance wrong and you’ll end up with all your mates thinking you’re off to pretend your Rambo.

Wearing print, in this case camouflage, needn’t be the daunting fashion experience it first seems. The blend of greens actually offset the remainder of your outfit and work well with a plethora of colours from whites and navy blues through to exuberant reds and yellows.

And let’s face it, most men go about their work day blending into the crowd so why not step out of the shadows and try something a little different for your evening or weekend wear.

    I’m loving the impact of the Camo look once again! It has to be worn with simple articles of an outfit, because too much “in your face” patterns can be too straining on the eye. But kudos to those who meticulously pull this look off, though.

    Another fine posy by Men’s Fashion Magazine! Keep up the great work guys!
