Be a camo chameleon like Julia Restoin Roitfeld
The military trend, an old favourite, is on the march once again and womenswear is currently having a love affair with all things camouflage. It might be ever-cool, but this is a potentially tricky one so let’s look to Julia Restoin Roitfeld for a lesson in how to pull off the print impeccably.
NY-based ‘It’ girl Julia shared this selfie on Instagram featuring an army green cotton shirt by Current/Elliott. The L.A. label is known for elegantly pared-down pieces in neutral hues. Think all things Americana style in relaxed and hard-wearing natural fabrics, hugely popular amongst the Insta set.
JRR knows exactly how to sex-up the brand’s functionality by adding a pair of shorter-than-short black denim cut-offs to create one superbly sassy ensemble. This is the daughter of Frenchy editrix Carine Roitfeld, lest we forget…
Though Julia’s ensemble is a tad skimpy now that the chill of Autumn has arrived, you’d be wise to follow her lead and incorporate a little camouflage into your wardrobe. It really is a classic, whether you’re at work or running errands of a weekend. Throw a military shirt over a Breton tee, for example. Or balance out the tough vibe by adding a foxy black leather skirt and strappy heels, making for an excellent day-to-night outfit.
If you want to emulate Julia’s exact look, her Current/Elliott shirt is available from FarFetch for just under £300. It’s a timeless investment that’s sure to become one of those wardrobe favourites you crack out again and again.
