Camouflage- The disguising of military personnel, equipment, and installations by painting or covering them to make them blend in with their surroundings (Thanks, Google). P.S. Did you know there was a camo pattern index?

The thought of taking look shots in the woods with camouflage sounded like a good setting idea until the pictures came out in total green glory blurriness. However, this minor and published setback interested me in researching about the fabric print which dates back all the way to the 19th century for no other purpose but military personnel.

The green puzzle pattern made its debut onto street style since World War I and is one of the trends to look for this upcoming fall. In true fashion industry fashion, designers have taken camo into their own interpretation by altering color, fabrication, and inserting the print onto modern silhouettes. As The New York Times describes it, “Camouflage is a fashion disguise for when you want to be seen.”
