Buy this, not that: Camo tee shirt
I've been watching the camo trend with wary eyes for a while now. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I grew up in a small southern town where people wore camo (and still do!) on a daily basis. We even had "camo day" in high school for pep rallies. So yeah, I guess you could say I feel like, 'been there, done that...what's next?' when it comes to camo.
But then I saw this cute faded and worn-in CURRENT/ELLIOTT freshmen tee in army camo and I thought, you know, I might could see myself in that. But I could not see myself spending the $118 on it. Instead I found this very similar yet much more affordable option from The Deal Rack for only $11. Definitely more my price range for a trend that's sure to disappear in the next year or so. (camo...disappear...see what I did there?!). It's not exactly the same coloring, but they do both have the faded/worn-in and loose fitting elements.
Anyhow, I say rock it with some gray distressed jeans, black heels and accessorize with studded or spiked jewelry to give off a hard core vibe. Or you could even tuck it into a black leather pleated skirt to complete a girly, yet edgy ensemble.
