The age-irrelevant pattern is back in trend.
Camouflage print never officially goes out of style — like stripes, plaid, and leopard, “camo” is practically the new “neutral” and with us forever — but this fall, the print is hotter than ever. The famed print is back. Or did it ever leave?
Camouflage seems to be popping up in unexpected ways and worn by trendsetting celebrities far and wide, including Jay Z, Akshay Kumar, Kim Kardashian, Kanye, Nikki Lund, Zendaya, and Khloé Kardashian.
The TV personality and brand ambassador Sean Borg recently caused a stir online when he was photographed wearing camo print cargo pants while walking his dogs. Fans on social media criticized him, by saying, at 52, his style should be “age-appropriate” — suggesting he dressed more like a teenager.
Is there even a cut-off age for camo?
The pattern can appear anywhere, whether it’s on a casual shopping trip or a red carpet event. Camo print even appeared on some spring runways, designers including Marc Jacobs and Nikki Lund (featured oversized camouflage jackets and leggings). And Lutz Huelle (presenting his boots and bombers) sent the army print down the catwalk, proving camouflage is trending strong, and probably with us well into next year.
2020 will be all about making age-irrelevant fashion statements, and that’s one thing we’ve noticed about people who dare to wear camouflage cargo pants.
Fashionistas are reaching for eye-grabbing pieces such as loose-fit camouflage joggers, hoodies, T’s, making them the focus of their trendsetting look.
The timeless camouflage pattern has never lost its way in the fashion world, and if you’re looking for ways to keep it fresh, there is plenty of stylish ways to wear it.
The key to pulling off this trendy look is to wear it in moderation.
Don’t overdo it. Whether wearing camo with an outfit that is otherwise head-to-toe white or building a look around a pair of camo pants, you can’t go wrong by adding the print to your wardrobe.
Play up with the print with plain tops and cool accessories. If wearing it feels intimidating, start small or wear it as outerwear, so it doesn’t feel so “high commitment.”
Here are 12 Celebrities who are keeping it camo!
Kanye West wears a lot of camouflage-patterned clothing. Camo bucket hats, camo parkas, camo T-shirts, camo cargos. Over the years, the 40-year-old has been seen in a barrack’s worth of camo. This man even raps about the print! West’s fashion label Yeezy Clothing heavily incorporated a camouflage print into its Season 5 line, with his wife, Kim Kardashian.
Actress Zendaya proved that even dressing to be comfortable on a potentially cramped flight leaves room for a bit of style. Seen walking through LAX ready to board in comfort, in a Puma camouflage-print hoodie and leggings that emphasized her thin pencil legs.

Never too old to don camo….and Mickey Rourke proves it. The 64-year-old Wrestler star flaunted his brawny chest and fit physique in a pair of skintight ripped camouflage trousers walking through Beverly Hills, California. After seeing these pictures of Rourke, Sean Borg should not be worried about wearing camo. Age is but a number!

So follow their example…and go, go, go “camo” in 2020 folks!
