Trend Alert: Camouflage Print Clothing

This summer, the United States Army uniform was redesigned. The most obvious update was the print. This print took four years of research under the name Camouflage Improvement Effect. It was generally a huge study on camo prints. While in theory this study should mostly apply to the Army, it is actually generating attention and press from those outside of the military. This is because what is happening in military uniforms has a direct impact on what happens at fashion week, and then consequently mass fashion. Today, we are feeling the effects of this when we look at the strong presence of camouflage print clothing at T.D.C.

Perhaps it was the redesigned military uniforms that inspired the camouflage print clothing seen on recent runways. Burberry showed suede camouflage bags and boots in the autumn/winter 2015 collection, which is coming to stores now. Men’s collections for spring / summer 2016 also included the print, indicating that camouflage print clothing will be having its moment in the spotlight for a while.

We are seeing the jump from runway to ready-to-wear and mass market fashion with the camouflage print clothing offered at T.D.C. In updated fall silhouettes, we have sweaters, leggings, jackets and tops all featuring different variations of this well-known look. Given its military background, camo gives off a strong, confident vibe. Your customers will be self assured as they go back to school with camouflage print clothing from T.D.C.


To find these items and many more on our website, simply type “camo” into the search bar. Along with the featured styles above, you will discover dresses, shorts, and skinny jeans, graphic hoodies and more. Find the silhouettes that work best for your target market, and take action before this hot print is all gone!
