How to style a camo print jacket

Camo works with anything but here are a few themes to work around –

Pretty in punk

We’re loving grunge looks this season – inspired by old school rebel girls like Gwen Stefani, Winona Ryder, Courtney Love and Drew Barrymore. These ladies knew how to work a strong print – so make like them with a camo military jacket worn over a loose fit t-shirt, ripped jeans and a plaid shirt tied round the waist. Leave hair messy and don’t forget the eyeliner.

Athleisure meets military

Looking to dress up your gym kit? A camo print jacket is the perfect addition to a matching tracksuit look. Pair our SD Sport Colour Block Joggers with the SD Sport Colour Block Zip Hoodie on top – finish with a rookie camo print jacket and pull that hood out over the collar to add some interest with layers.

Texturise

Avoid a basic look by mixing camo print with a textured material – like faux fur, shearling or crushed velvet. We love the idea of taking a pair of leather look jeans and working these with crisp white kicks, a baggy band t-shirt and an oversized jacket – our Rookie Oversized Jacket is the right one for the job with a baggier look and rebellious personalised vibes.  

Pyjamas and a red lip

Evening plans? Keep things simple with a slip dress – we’re loving the pyjama vibe at the min, with lace detail and satin material – worn under a camo print military jacket. Dress things up with a red lip, oversized earrings and barely there heels.

Keep it uniform

Camo print + camo print = true new season style. Don’t be afraid to embrace the print from top-to-toe. Our Utility Crop Jacket worn over a plain black tee and Acid Dungaree Shorts makes for the perfect spring/summer look. Push it that one step further with a Camo Trucker Cap on top. You definitely won’t blend in.

What trousers to wear with a camo jacket

You do you when it comes to your look – but check out these suggestions if you’re done with the usual skinny jeans.

  • Flares – Take inspiration from the 70s, with fit and flare trousers that work with heeled boots, a slogan tee and a camo print jacket draped on top. We’re loving brighter colours when it comes to this style – think yellow, orange or in your face pink.
  • Joggers – Slim fit, cuffed joggers are ideal weekend attire. Wear a navy pair with low trainers, an oversized shirt and with a Rookie military jacket with the sleeves rolled up. The perfect coffee shop catch up look for the weekend.
  • Dungarees – Okay, they’re not really trousers but once you find the right pair you won’t go back to jeans. Boyfriend dungarees with a bit of room in the leg look great with a lightweight camo print jacket and striped tee underneath.

What to look for in a camo jacket

  • Strong print – Defined lines and contrasting colours are a must to make that camo print pop.
  • Colour – You can be as bold or traditional as you like – embrace brown and khaki reminiscent of military wear or opt for greys and blacks for a more subtle look.
  • Distinctive cut – Bombers and military jackets are the best for camo print. Epaulette details, gold buttons and embroidered patches create a look that will get you noticed.
  • Shacket material – Camo print works best for lightweight jackets, choose a thinner material that reminds you of a thick shirt.
