Would you wear this trend?

Just when you think it’s not possible for a trend to ever be resurrected again, the fashion industry go ahead and bring it back. And even worse is you consider wearing it again and curse yourself for ever ridding your wardrobe of the trend.

Case in point: camouflage.

If like me, you were a teenager in the 90s you will remember -fondly or *cough* otherwise – camouflage print in all it’s cargo pant glory. It was one of those trends that grew exponentially; teenagers of both sexes wore it, mums and dads wore it, kids wore it, even your pet dog probably had a camouflage print collar.

It was everywhere then and it’s the surprise new trend for autumn/winter.

If you’re looking for someone to blame for the camo resurrection, go directly to influential fashion designer Thakoon and his Autumn/Winter ’12 collection and if you want to give trend a try (or aren’t scarred from the first time round) keep reading for 3 ways to style it without looking like an army reserve.
