Explosive trick

Army green traditionally says “male,” so the trick to balancing the look is to add a few girly elements for a good masculine-feminine mash-up!

Michael Kors black sleeveless top; Terranova army-green long-sleeve top; Miss Selfridge black leatherette skirt; Massimo Dutti gray scarf; Jellybean black quilted sling bag; Mango maroon socks; black Warden wedges from Steve Madden

Into the wild

Pair stripes with this camo-print jacket, a delightful and exciting contrast fit for the wild ones.

Tailored army

Keep it together on the runway with tailored and sleek pieces.

Mango army-green top; Zara army-green shorts; A/X leopard-print blazer; Mango fringe bag; Forever 21 camo belt and boots

Armed forces

Camo prints are all the rage this season, and so too are camo pants.

Forever 21 black lace corset; oversized denim vest, camouflage skinny pants and tan suede lace-up booties, all from Zara

Lady chameleon

Try wearing an army green jacket with softer pieces to give the look a more feminine and modern edge.
