Camouflage

John Marine | 9:52 AM | | | | | | | | |
You can't see me! Camouflage is usually worn to blend into certain environments, and it is also usually worn by soldiers. In fashion, camouflage usually consists of traditional military-type camouflage. Another style of camo is hunting camo for all of you outdoor sport types. Camouflage in fashion and in accessories is what this blog post is all about. Love you some camo? Well hopefully, all the tender loving camo care (TLCC?) you can handle will be included in this blog post.





--- Camouflage in Fashion ---

Camouflage is usually and commonly associated with military-type camouflage. Camo for soldiers is commonly the sort of black/green/brown. There are also other kinds of camo worn by various soldiers. Other camouflage examples include designs for desert camo (lot of brown colors), Marine camo (lot of blue colors), and urban camo among others. For the girly-girl, there is also pink camo. You know... pink camo for girls want to tell other girls that they can't see them.

Sports teams may even wear camouflage in support of troops. For example, there are times when the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball wear special uniforms adorned with camo in support of the men and women of our Armed Forces. In 2011, the USS Carl Vinson played host to a unique NCAA college basketball game between North Carolina and Michigan State. Many soldiers were on hand in San Diego, CA to see these college basketball game as well as President Barack Obama. The players wore unique uniforms adorned with camouflage. The colors of the basketball uniforms were unique to the two schools- the light blue colors for UNC and the green for Michigan State. There was a college basketball game in 2012 held at an Air Force base in Germany. This game involved the University of Connecticut and Michigan State University. Both teams were dressed up in camouflage uniforms as they played for American troops stationed at the Ramstein Air Force base.

Anyhow, I don't necessarily think people wear camo to show they're soldiers or support the military- though there are those who are proud of members of the military. By the way- that is absolutely NOT a problem. I also support and honor all of the men and women serving in the American military. Doesn't matter if it's the Coast Guard, the Army, the Navy, the Marines, the Air Force... I salute all my men and women protecting the United States home and abroad. But back to the discussion of camo. Most people wear camo for the pattern and for the colors. I would commonly see green camo pants and jeans as far as camo garments are concerned. I've sometimes seen camo shorts. Often times, camo bottoms are usually paired with combat boots for that soldier look, or often with some other tough shoes. Some try to dress up camo. Ever seen camo jeans/pants worn with high heels or some other fashionable shoes? Even I think it is cool for a female to pair some cargo camouflage jeans/pants with some zip-up booties or some high-heel pumps. Some go with camo footwear- even a basic pair of flip-flop/thong sandals adorned with camouflage patterns. There are also other camo garments like camo shirts, camo jackets, camo scarves, camo skirts, camo dresses, and the like. There are even camo accessories for various smartphones and tablet PCs.

There are so many ways to wear camo and be seen in camo. Here are two little examples of camouflage prevalent:


Traditional Camouflage.

The most common camouflage you'll see is the traditional black/green/brown Army camo. This is what you will commonly see people wear. It isn't just females who wear camo- us males also rock camo as well. Not me, though. In recent times, there has been digital camouflage designed much the same way as traditional camo, but with more sharp edges.


Hunting Camouflage.

When researching this topic, I also found out about hunting camouflage. I have not seen a single episode of the extremely popular Duck Dynasty, but it is what I can immeidately refer to as far as pop culture with hunting camo. You don't see hunting camo unless you see someone hunting or something. Camo is otherwise more common with military-type camo.

I do just want to make mention of hunting camo just to add to the conversation.

--- Camouflage: Final Thoughts ---

The majority of those who wear camouflage mostly sport this style for its pattern. The diversity of colors in one garment more than make up what makes up the appeal of wearing camo. There is a toughness to camo that makes it fashionable among many people. You don't have to be a soldier, a hunter, or be in any such way involved with any military to enjoy camouflage.

You can either love or hate this print, I guess. I have a few items in it, but more discreet patterns. :)

I'm not a huge fan of camouflage, but I think in small amounts, it add a cool touch to casual outfits. I like it when it's mixed with rock-n-roll tees or slightly edgier jewelry.
