Utilitarian looks (think cargo pants and bomber jackets) were all over the latest runway shows and are a favorite among street stylers.

Incorporating some camo print into your fit is a surefire way to effortlessly tap into the utility aesthetic.

While it might seem like a manly print that can be tricky to style in a girly way, below you’ll see what to pair it with so it’s worthy of being worn for a night on the town with the girls.

And the best part is, these fresh styling ideas can be applied to whatever form your camo pattern comes in, whether that’s camo cargo pants, shirts, jackets, etc.

How to Style Camo Idea #1: Army Barbie | Camo Cargo Pants + Girly Pink

Admittedly, camo print can come on a bit strong and masculine. The best antidote for that is to water it down with a womanly touch.

Quickly feminize a camouflage print by pairing it with something iconically girly.

And what’s more girly than pink, pink, and more pink?

Think, Gi Joe meets Barbiecore to nail the vibe.

Style a pink tank, men’s button-up shirt, or chunky knit sweater (or all of the above) in any shade of pink to instantly soften camo cargo pants. 

Heeled sandals or boots give us shorter-legged girls a boost and add some going-out sexiness.

Another way to dull down the toughness of military garb is by offsetting it with some boho, Little House on the Prairie, or cottagecore elements (think: folksy floral patterns, basket weave purses, and Victorian-style boots).

If you could imagine skipping through the meadow in your fit, you’ve nailed the aesthetic.

This pairing of wallpaper florals with an army print shirt helps to downplay the military feel.

Add a tiny picnic basket purse and cowgirl boots to your army fatigues for some cottagecore flair and just the right amount of girliness.

How to Style Camo Idea #3: Radioactive Army | Camouflage Jacket + Neon Brights

Break out your radioactive shades (like construction worker yellow or highlighter orange), because we need it to offset the drabness of a camouflage print.

This last look is intended to spice up a government-issue Jigsaw camo jacket because while this pattern is intended to keep you hidden, a street-style fit is meant to achieve the opposite.

Pairing a neon sports-bra-as-a-top with an oversized army jacket does the trick quite well, but a vibrant-hued skirt, (an actual) shirt, or dress would look equally cute. (I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of this bra top trend. For more bra-as-shirt styling ideas you have to check out my how to wear a bra-as-a-top post.)

Finish the look off by tucking your bright wash, straight-leg jeans into cowgirl boots for street-style urban cowboy.

A black western-style boot offers a similar silhouette to combat boots but they’re much more unexpected.
