Triple Your Style: 3 Ways to Wear a Camo Tee

If it seems like you've been seeing camo clothing pop up everywhere lately, that's because you have! I would say camo has been present in mainstream fashion for quite a while, but it definitely seems like it's experiencing a hardcore moment of popularity and I am 100% here for it. Why? I consider the olive green tones in camo to be a neutral which means it's versatile - plus it's just a fun pattern to play with! It pairs really well with things like stripes and leopard, but it also looks awesome with unexpected pairings like pastel pink or vivid brights. 

I already own a few camo items that I wear on a pretty regular basis, most notably a camo utility jacket that I never want to be without. However, if you're new to wearing the print or you don't want to invest in a piece like a jacket, the most simple option that will give you the most bang for your buck is a camo tee. The idea for this post was actually inspired by a recent purchase of a new camo tee I scored for less than $10 in one of my favorite secret fashion spots - the MEN'S department at Walmart! The George brand at Walmart does some really fun items for men and I have zero shame about snapping them up when I think they'll work for me. This tee is available in stores and online but I anticipate it will sell out pretty fast both places. If you don't have time to go look, go check it out online HERE. 
(On a side note, if you happen to see the flamingo print they did this shirt in as well, just know I have that bad boy too, and it will be making an appearance soon!)

I wanted to show you a few simple, fun ways to style a tee like this. Whether you plan to go grab this great deal from Walmart or you already have one of these tees in your closet, odds are you already own tons of great things you can pair it with. That's the beauty of getting a great deal on a fun trend like this one - no need to spend a lot on it, and no need to buy other things to go with it. Let's get into the details - I will link everything I can or a similar version for you!

LOOK 1
Feminine+Flirty
Even if your style is a little more glam, you can still do camo! Add some pops of pink and sparkly, fun jewelry and you're all set. If your style is ultimately feminine or girly, I bet there's a fun statement necklace sitting in your jewelry box right now and a pretty pink cardi, jacket, or layering piece you can throw over it. Easy peasy!

LOOK 2
Casual+Classic
The beauty of a piece like this is its ability to make an outfit instantly feel just a little more special than say, a plain white tee. I mean, we love a good white tee moment, but a fun print just elevates an outfit without even having to try. This look is perfect for going out to run errands, hauling your kiddo(s) to a birthday party, or just meeting friends for coffee. I paired it with my favorite $10 black joggers also from Walmart and the hardest working gal in fashion - the denim jacket. Cute sneaks, minimal jewelry, and boom - effortless, casual, chic. You could also sub black leggings or black denim!

LOOK 3
Neutral+Chic
I think this is one of the most universally flattering ways to style this tee because it's definitely casual, but a bit more dressed up than the look above. There are also an unlimited number of little tweaks or changes you could do to make this work for every season - trade a lightweight cardi or vest for a neutral colored coat or chunky knit cardi in the winter, or swap out regular denim and ankle boots for white denim and sandals in the summer. The key is neutral colors, interesting textures, and letting the camo print do the talking!

No matter how you wear it, this tee is so inexpensive and versatile. If you have any interest in trying the camo trend at all, I can't recommend it enough. Since it is a men's cut, you may want to size down of course, but I love that it has a slightly oversized fit. For the price, you just can't beat it! Are you currently wearing camo? If so, how are you wearing it? I hope this gives you some inspiration and gets you thinking about creative ways to style pieces in your closet. Happy shopping!
