3 Cute Ways to Wear Camo

In fashion, and in life, there are some things you can do without a whole lot of thought - little black dresses, striped shirts and watching Real Housewives come to mind. Camo, my budding style mavens, is not one of these things. Unless you live in a shady forest dwelling, camo is not so easily hidden in the urban jungle; One careless misstep and you're a total fashion goner, ready to be stink-eyed, mocked or promptly enlisted.

For Fall '13 some of my fav designers, from Alexander Wang to Rebecca Minkoff to Michael Kors saluted camouflage in a seriously chic way, showing us that camo is officially on the front lines of fashion. Toss it into your wardrobe mix for the coming season and you'll be a total style soldier, ready to boldly take on anything life throws at you - from a mundane day at the office to a weekend brunch with your besties.

You know the drill, sergeant! Scroll below for 3 chic ways to bravely pull off camo this fall. I like to think of it as some serious Fashion Intel...
