I remember when I was in 7th grade and camo print experienced a sudden surge in popularity. From loose-fitting drawstring pants to camouflage tees, sweaters, backbacks, and beyond, I was pretty much the coolest kid in school as long as I kept buying camo gear like it was going out of style (and it was)! And while we have yet to experience another camo fest quite as enthusiastic as that one was, army-inspired tough-girl duds have certainly found their place in the modern fashion spotlight. Military-inspired jackets, pants, bags, boots and more have been quite a persistent trend for a few years now, so it's not too surprising to see it stepped up a notch with camo print jackets. From bulky oversized coats to throw over all your warm-weather gear to more feminine fits with fun details like studs and spikes, I love the juxtaposition of the rugged camo print over girly fall florals or a soft knit sweater. It's a stylish contrast with just the right amount of "don't mess with me" 'tude to get you through the cold weather ahead!
