Cheap Thrills

With trends moving in and out faster than you can say “overalls,” it’s important to look inside your closet to ensure your main staples still have prime real estate. As the numerous threads of fashion continue to spin faster and faster by the minute on their looms, we as consumers are absorbed into their vernacular, and wear the result of several minds put together to realize a trend. And then it dies.

It’s when terms like “shopping spree” and “guilt-free” don’t always go hand in hand, when the stars align and this affordable opportunity appears. I will only then happily indulge in a little retail therapy. And, this season, there is plenty out there that is easy on the eyes and the wallet.

Cue the looks down below. I have paired a camouflage tank top with a pair of slouchy black vegan jogging pants, a pair of Proenza Schouler pumps scored on Yoox,(frankly any high heels will do here) with an ivory wrap, preparing for the late afternoon chill. This look is primed for any occasion, be it a November snow flurry, an afternoon stroll, or a holiday party. Just don’t forget that holiday pedicure ladies!

Want to rock the trend but not sure how to wear camouflage? Here are my thoughts:

  • If you have a camo pant/legging – think of black, deep navy, chambray, white, light gray, or light pink tops to pair with them. A pink or white softens the ‘tough’ of the camouflage.
  • If you have a camo jacket, keep the rest of your look neutral underneath.  That’s a lot of print you are wearing already.
  • Use camo as a ‘pop’ in a tank under a sweater or jacket or on your feet with a fun pair of flats.  I’ve worn my camouflage flats with jeans and black skinny pants. Maybe I should pair them with white jeans or winter white cords. A camouflage scarf would be a fun way to dip your toe in the trend also.
