Nigel Cabourn for Yuketen Camo Canoe Backpack
The thing with camo is that pulling it off is not as easy as it seems: besides the wide array of pattern and color variations, you still need to incorporate it in an intelligent fashion to make it sophisticated. Apart from the obvious choice of garment or accessory, which bears a huge impact when it comes to scale, you should consider the types of camo available (woodland, digital, etc) and see which works best for you.
These woodland camo shorts are a nice twist on traditional Summery alternatives and I love breaking the whole military theme by adding more classic items, such as a dress shirt, sports jacket and tasseled loafers. In the end, this eclectic mix is what makes the whole look visual appealing…

THOROCRAFT SS13 Collection
One of the best ways to incorporate camo into your outfits is to slowly work it through small accessories such as pocket squares or ties, and then transition to larger accessories or garments, where the print’s visual impact grows proportionally. This backpack from Herschel has one of the most appealing camo prints I’ve seen lately, perfectly blended with contrasting leather details, which set the mood for the whole look. The vintage camel suede bomber was the perfect match for those green shades and leather highlights…
