will you hide out in a camo dress this summer?

by liza darwin

Last summer it seemed like every girl and her sister (and her mother, and her best friend, and even her enemies....) owned a pair of those skinny green cargo pants. And while the ubiquitous bottoms haven't quite faded out just yet, this year another army-inspired fad is set to take over our closets.

Brands like Insight, Nicholas K and most recently, GAP, have already debuted the camouflage dress in different shapes and styles to varying degrees of success. Some are more literal, like the DvF version or Zoe Kravitz's full-skirted Opening Ceremony frock, while Insight and Alice Temperley go for more abstract prints.

Regardless of the take on the trend, the message is still loud and clear. Camo may not suffice as a disguise in the urban jungle like it does in battle, but if styled right, there's no chicer way to take cover.
