So can you wear camo print to the office?  Obviously, the answer depends on where you work.  But if you do decide to throw it on, be sure to stick to a few rules...

Rule 1: Stick to a Neutral Color Palette
Black, brown or a crisp white are my favorites to pair with a camo print.  The neutral base serves to visually ground the print...which makes your look appear more pulled together.

Rule 2: Add Feminine Accessories
Camo is a masculine print.  I love the fun contradiction of adding pearls + glittery goodness.

Rule 3: Pay Attention to Quality
Because camo can often appear a bit juvenile + weekend's important to pair it with pieces of substance if you are stepping foot into the workplace.  So reach for your designer basics when dressing up camo.

So what do YOU think of camo print in the workplace?  Yay or Nay?
