The camouflage trend is one that's very hard to keep up with. Once minute it's on-trend, the next it's the biggest faux pas possible. It's been in and out more times than I can count since 2012, which was you know, that year where camo jackets and beanie hats must have sold out worldwide cheers to Tumblr. 

The camouflage jacket I'm rocking in this post is in fact that exact jacket from way back in the day, which I'm pretty sure I bought at a market in France at a military gear vintage stall. I know, who knew that were a thing? Well, it was in this small French town.

However, shortly after purchasing and finding it hard to walk down the street without seeing at least 5 girls in Topshop's version it was banished to the back of the wardrobe. 

Only to be whacked back out for the first time at London Fashion Week SS18, which I'm not going to lie, I was slightly hesitant about. My anxiety was not made any better when a tourist, complete with Pret in hand fell into my lap on way my into central London that morning. Talk about blending in.


Firstly, let me just name a few of designers who have featured camo on their catwalks in recent seasons: 

SS17 Marc Jacobs
AW17 Zagdig & Voltaire, Fyodor Golan
AW17 Balmain mens
SS17 Each X Other
SS17 Valentino  


Not forgetting Bella Hadid, who touched down in London a few months back rocking a camo jumpsuit. I bet she wasn't sat on on public transport.


So, how should you wear the trend in 2017? 

1. Go for a camo crop 

If you're a newbie or want to just add a splash of the print I suggest going for a cool camo crop. Missguided cleverly gave camo a refresh by creating mesh crops in numerous colours, which can easily be dressed up or down.


2. Go for camo with a modern twist 

ASOS and numerous other retails have given the retro print a modern twist by adding texture. Camo puffer jacket? Check. Mesh skirts? Check. Fluffy cropped jackets? Erm, hell yeah, check. 

So, if you are looking for camo with a 2017 revamp go for a item which isn't the 'camo' norm.



3. Buy a pair of cargo pants 

You know I said I was slightly worried about turning up to fashion week wearing proper CCF cargo pants? Well, there was no need to worry, as everyone and their assistant was wearing cargo pants. They have become a street style staple this season because they give off the perfect androgynous vibes, and are basically just cool AF.  

Stick to pairing them with a plain black or white staples, eg, white tee, leather jacket and vinyl boots and you're set. 






 4. Just do it already

If you've read this article thus far, then chances are you *really really* want to test out a bit of military vibes.  Hey, I feel ya girl.

You just need to go for it. If I can go out around London and be in the presence of Kate Moss in full-on combat gear, then you can absolutely rock a camo item or two. 

Side note: Trust me, the print will make you feel ever-so-slight badass. I felt like Action Man IRL.




And it was awesome.  

Now, go forth, unleash your tomboy side and camo it up.

How to wear military gear if you have no idea

What ever happened to the little black dress?
 

What once was the most worn item in every girls wardrobe has taken a back seat in recent years as millennial's opt for a more smart casual dress code.

In case we'd all forgotten how magical a petite black dress can be - a slew of celebs (such as Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin) have recently been bringing back the classic style, making us all want to buy a new LDB - pronto. 

So, to reaffirm your love of the garment I've created a guide of three ways to wear Nicce's versatile velour number.  I could of done this for the day, work and evening outfit - but where's the fun in that?


Therefore, I give you  a casual cool look for when you want to give off your best off-duty model vibes. A look for when you’re just hands down feelin’ yo’ self and another for what you would love to be wearing if you ever ran into a ex. What?  IT COULD HAPPEN.

The casual cool look

Beret: eBay
 
The little black dress shouldn't be shunned to the back of your wardrobe as soon as the weather gets a bit chillier.  It's actually one of the simplest and easiest items to layer things under for a hella cool winter look.

For a Parisian chic vibe add a trusty black polo neck underneath (and obvs accessorize with a beret). 

But ya know me, I like to mix things up a bit and therefore opted for a very on-point checkerboard printed football top from the House Of Holland x Umbro collection, which is GOAAALS.

(pun intended)

The ‘I’m feelin’ myself’ evening outfit 

 

Need an outfit for that Friday night out with the gals? 

 

Nothing will make you feel more confident than a little black dress. After all, it’s no secret that black is the most flattering colour on the planet. 

Plus, if you find the right LBD it also has the ability to make you feel ever-so-slightly sexy, am I right? 


What I love about this Nicce number is it’s uber 90s spaghetti straps that go into a low V at the back - basically creating a low key risquΓ© look.


In order to show off the dress in all it’s glory I did something I never ever do - I put my hair up in a equally 90s high ponytail, accessorized with some diamantΓ© jewels and felt like a million dollars.


It also took me the grand total of 5 mins to get ready - bonus!

The outfit you’d want to wear to run into your ex 


Boots: Primark

We’ve all done it, thought about what outfit we’d want to be wearing if we ever ran into a ex.

The outfit has to be part sexy to make them question why they ever let you go, yet also ever-so-glamorous to just confirm that you.are.totally.bossing.life.right.now.

So, I think I may have come up with the perfect combo - a sassy lil' black dress with a massive f*ck off faux fur coat that makes you unmissable. 

Obvs, I added hair extensions and sunglasses just to be extra boujee. 

And there you have it, 3 badass ways to style a little black dress.
