I still remember being particularly drawn to my dad’s oversized camo jacket as a child — struggling to fit into the mass of fabric and unintentionally building a fort out of it. To my frustration and out of my dad’s amusement, he eventually got me a similar jacket in my size (one size larger actually because “I’ll still grow into it” as per parent logic *eye roll*) and since then, my penchant for all things camo and a little utilatarian began.
I like to think that wardrobe staples are what you make of it and sticking to pieces you personally believe are timeless. Although prints such as camo may be tricky, it’s all about investing in the simplest form of a print (e.g. a plain t-shirt with no unecessary quotations, buttons, ruffles or extra fabric) and keeping it in storage ’til the next time it becomes “cool” again.
