Butch camouflage and whimsical polka-dot patterns are both big for this fall season (separate of course), popping up on shirts, shoes, sweaters, accessories and more. Camo has been on the style board for some time, ever since designers began tweaking the military pattern with Day-Glo colors. Polka dots have been a style staple at least since the 1960s, but this year the pattern is really making the rounds, from couture to street fashion.
Contributing style for NewNowNext.com, I’ve selected pieces to get this season. See a couple selections for each below:
Volcom’s Sub Zero Boots
Volcom’s new footwear line is on point with these comfortable survival boots offering just a hint of camo. Rock it in the city or in the wilderness. ($160, Volcom)
Joe Fresh Camo Sweater
A solid crew neck sweater is a fall essential, but for a cooler look this Joe Fresh heather-gray sweater sports blue camoflage arms. ($29, Joe Fresh SoHo)
