Camo, Tartan & Mustard

Making prints pop is all about anchoring the look with basics. This neutral silk tunic is one of my base pieces I use to sport with leggings, or underneath a loud/detailed blazer or cardigan.

I’ve always thought that red and green go with mustard like peas and carrots. The colors are so wintery, and in lieu of the recent weather along the east coast (hey–even we’re getting a freeze here in Florida!) I thought a nod to the chilly weather would be appropriate.

Persunmall and my recent collaboration included styling of this choice piece of mine from their recent collection–the camo blazer. ¬†More often than not, the mere thought of “camo” conjures up images of hunting and ill-reputed unstylish pieces made popular by recluses hiding in the woods.

Recently, however, fashion has turned this unfathomable print into a statement piece. ¬†From blazers to flats this pattern has been popping up everywhere. From Kors to Minkoff the runway shows in Fall ’13 were covered from head to proverbial toe in variations of the beloved hunting pattern. Personally, I’m loving a good jacket spruced up (no pun intended) with bright colors, and of course patterns of similar simplicity.

What do you think of the camo trend?

 

Food for thought: here’s something wonderful to remain a mantra in the new year!
