Five Ways To Style Camo Pants Like A Trendsetter

No matter how you define your style, here's how you can rock this trend.

Style

Camouflage pants are the G.O.A.T. because no matter how you define your style, you can easily rock them. According to fashion history books, the print began its invasion of popular culture and street style around the second half of the twentieth century. Andy Warhol led the charge in making it a daily fad.

These days it serves as a neutral similar to the snakeskin print with its natural properties. To help a sis out, we have curated a handful looks to help you maximize this style staple. We think you'll love these fresh takes on the true to form pattern.

Mix Prints

Mixing prints is one of my favorite things to do because the visual layering gives my outfits edge. One of the keys in achieving this high-level styling trick is matching colors and not actual prints. Also, by choosing a shoe that is in the same color family as the cardigan, I pulled off an outright uniform.

Monochrome

If simplicity is more your speed, try styling a look with similar colors. Camo pants are quite versatile but you can keep it classic by just pulling from the colors in the print. The goal is to look effortless. And you do that by pairing neutral shades together. This is one of the best ways to let the pants do the talking.

Set it a-blazer!

Elevate your casual bottoms with a blazer. Fun fact: blazers make everything better. I made that up but it's so true. I wanted to create a sporty chic getup so I coupled a bandeau top with some layering necklaces to urbanize the blazer. The closed toe, strappy pumps assist in leaning towards a chic ensemble.

ADIDAS

All I want in this life of sin is for Tupac to come out of hiding and to wear this shirt everyday. Make the pants the focal point with a black and white graphic tee and classic Adidas. The leather hat, big ass earrings and sunglasses computes cool girl vibes so whether you're headed to a concert or running errands, you have a casual look that will slay all the onlookers.

Bring sexy back!

I really don't need an excuse to wear this gorgeous custom kimono but I loved adding it to this sexy look. The bodysuit has my girls sitting while the kimono presents a sensual form, making this outfit perfect for date night or a night spent trying to get cuffed. A lewk if we've ever seen one.

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.

I Read It, So You Don't Have To: 'The Power Of Vulnerability'

Three hundred and one days ago, I embarked on a journey to change the trajectory of my life.

Gradually and unknowingly, I exited my permanent fog and discovered I had been residing safely and warmly between the crossroads of dissatisfaction, anxiousness, depression, and self-pity. As a permanent resident, I had grown accustomed to the rollercoaster that was my mental and physical health. I had grown used to endless disappointment and claimed them as an inseparable essence of my being.
