I’m not much of the outdoorsy type, but I can’t help but fall in love with one of the biggest trends this season: camouflage.  The army-inspired print is instantly toughens up any look, but still feels modern and playful.  Check out a few of my favorite camo pieces, which are way more chic than your average surplus goods.

all dressed up.

scuba gear.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; Baukjen Carlisle black and blue shift dress; L.A.M.B. black and white clutch; Gorjana & Griffin gold alphabet disc bracelet; Pour La Victoire Mai black patent wedge pump; zeroUV mirrored aviator sunglassesI can’t say that I’ve ever been scuba diving, but I find the whole idea of an underwater adventure completing invigorating.  When I put on this wet suit inspired dress, I felt instantly transformed.  I love the minimalist look: a form-fitting frock paired with simple modern accessories.  I feel ready for a deep sea adventure — as long as I don’t have to get my hair wet.

off duty.

little mesh dress.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; Le Tote black mesh stripe dress; ILY Couture Basilissa pave link bracelet; L.A.M.B. black and white clutch; Prabal Garung x Target red wedge sandalsThere are plenty of ways to wear a little black dress, but this one might be my favorite.  I’m not the kind of girl that you’ll see wearing cut-out panels, but I will rock a bit of mesh.  It’s definitely more demure than its edgy counterpart, but it shows enough skin to make for a feminine and fresh take on the LBD.  This time around, accessories take a backseat to this fun little party frock.
