Studio 12.20's Army Essentials

Enlist in Fall 2013's hottest trend: camouflage. Adapted and re-created over the years by fashion designers, camouflage has a lengthy history and a strong place in the style world. The print was re-invented by Andy Warhol in the 1980's and through his art many fashion designers began to re-create camo from Army-related to fashion trendsetting wear. Fashion often calls upon this unique pattern and neutral color palate as inspiration, and this season it is back in full force.

Get your fatigues on.  If you love this trend, then the camo jacket is a fall essential. This "borrowed from the boys" look is extremely wearable, and adds an edgy feel to any outfit. Camo's neutral tones are an ideal palette to mix with colors like coral or cream. This look is a Studio 1220 favorite.

The Camo Sweater
Don't love the structured and literal look of the camo jacket? Then try the camo print in a slouchy sweater version. Mix it with your favorite white tee, black skinnies, and moto boots and you're guaranteed NOT to blend into the background. 

Kill two trends with one stone in a cozy and cool pullover sweatshirt.  The combination of the camouflage print and leather-like detailed shoulders makes this piece truly fresh and unique.

Think camo is just for the casual? Think again! Look pretty tough in an army inspired blazer. It's perfect for a night out on the town or styled up for the office.  You can be on trend, but still look classic and put together.

If you feel like toning down the camo print a bit, try sporting solids in olive or army green. The color looks picture perfect on every skin tone and it's super easy to mix and match. Wear it with neutrals or pair it with a bright color to make a statement. This hue will work in any form this season, whether it be with skinny jeans, jackets, tops, or sweaters.
