If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you probably know that I have a thing for camo. I don’t quite know what it is, but I love the print. It should come as no surprise that I just about died when I saw this Banana Republic camo sweater – I had to have it. The print is subtle enough to make it versatile for different occasions, and the jacquard fabric is so luxe.
Since camo is mostly thought of as a super casual print, I thought it would be fun to show it two different ways – one for work, and one for everyday. I probably would never have thought camo was work-appropriate in the past, but this sweater definitely makes the case for it.
Camo for Work
Fun fact: I haven’t worked in an office for a few years (I work from home), but I still love a nice, polished work ensemble. Something about it makes you feel so powerful. For this work-inspired look, I styled the camo sweater with classic black accents. Since the print is a little different, the black balances it out with a more traditional feel. The black blazer and culottes added some polish keeping the look classic, but still fun. Depending on how formal your place of work is, try sweater tucked in without the blazer for a more low key vibe.
Camo for Play
You guys know I am pretty much all about casual outfits. To transform the sweater from work-appropriate to weekend-ready, I nixed the blazer and replaced the culottes with a pair of high-waisted destroyed skinnies. I traded in the heels for suede booties, and topped it off with a felt fedora. Is it just me or do fedoras make everything instantly look cooler? As it gets colder outside, I would definitely consider adding a leather or suede jacket – I think my burgundy one would go perfectly with the light pink camo!
Would you consider wearing camo to work, or do you prefer it more on the weekends? Let me know in the comments below!
