Cheap and Chic: Summer Camo Prints for Men

Cheap and Chic: Summer Camo Prints for Men

This classic trend is back just in time for the hottest season of the year

June 10, 2013


We've seen the camouflage trend for more than a season now, and it's not losing any momentum heading in to summer. Previous years saw the typical brown or green military-inspired look. But now, the print goes even further. Maybe you own a pair of cargos or a jacket, but camo can be worn in unexpected ways and a few different hues. The print is an effortless way to refresh your wardrobe. And styling it is easier than you think and won't leave you looking like you a soldier.

For the City Dweller

Nike Cargo Shorts ($60,

If you're lounging on the weekend or taking in a game, you can never go wrong with a relaxed pair of cargos. You'll keep cool and still have a rugged edge. Pair with a funky neon sneaker and a white tee, and you're good to go. 

For the Sneakerhead

Puma Tekkies Sneakers ($27,

Speaking of sneakers, we found a fresh pair of kicks that is just as fresh. These will look fly against your favorite pair of dark denim.

For the Dapper Dresser

Topman Stone Camo Trim Skinny Pants ($75,

These pants are the epitome of how to add a trendy element to a classic piece. The camo trim is also perfect for those weary of wearing a large print. This slight detail can translate from work to weekend with a bright polo. 

For the Classic and Adventurous

Guess Jeans Camo Jacquard Shirt ($65,

Button-downs tend to get lumped in the category of boring and stiff, but not this one. The camo print goes blue and the button-down gains instant cool points. Have fun with the print and pair it with red trousers or keep it simple with beige khakis.

For the Laid Back Man

Lucky Camouflage Baseball Cap ($30,

On some days, your look isn't complete with a fitted. Repping your favorite team is OK, but this baseball cap has a fashion element. And the orange stitching is right on point for the hot summer months.
