I’m sure everyone has a camo print outfit from their past that they would rather never talk about again. I started college in 2016, around the time Drake’s album Views was all anyone could listen to, and Kylie Jenner’s “King Kylie” era was at its peak. So you could say my first year included a lot of outfits that included camo pants and jackets. Even though I thought about giving up these once beloved camouflage pieces, I could never bear to let them go. Now, in 2023, part of me plans to wear them again.
While it may not be the hottest print right now, a few recent runway and street style looks have convinced me that I’m ready to give the print a second chance in my wardrobe, and I’m not deterred by what anyone else has to say. Maybe it could even take off. Remember the iconic scene from mean girls where someone spotted Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip-flops, and suddenly everyone wanted a pair? While we’re not trying to be mean at Who What Wear, we certainly have a knack for inspiring people to make stylish purchases.
