Plus, My Go To Shop for Military Inspired Clothing
Camouflage is officially my favorite print. The masculine, edgy feel is right up my tomboy alley. Plus, it’s versatile and can be paired with pretty much anything.
That said, I paired my camo anorak with a vintage purple suede skirt (from East Vintage Village Collective). Hard on top, soft on the bottom. The hoodie and skirt combo have a dull tone which is why I added booties with the metallic finish. They bring a sense of energy to the look. A matte shoe would have completely dulled down the look and a shiny shoe would have been too busy.
One of my biggest styling techniques is to play with proportion. So, I balanced the oversized hoodie with a short, fitted (but not tight) skirt. A long skirt or pants, for example, wouldn’t have been as interesting.
My favorite place to get camo gear (clothes, outerwear, hats) is Sportsman’s Guide. For my DMV’ers, they’re like an online Sunny’s Surplus (apparently, they filed for bankruptcy?!).
Anyway, Sportsman’s Guide has a good military surplus store with many different types of jackets (I didn’t know so many existed) at extremely affordable prices. Some of the military surplus clothes are authentic while other items are replicas. Also, all the sizing is for men, so keep that in mind. I like military inspired clothes to feel masculine and androgynous, so I prefer larger sizing.
