Camo Lifestyle Series #1: 11 Ways She Can Wear Camo When Not Hunting

Camo is cool. We’ve decided to write a series on the many ways to wear and display camo when you really don’t need it. Welcome to the Camo Lifestyle Series, and in this first installment, our Babbs found 11 ways a woman can wear camo — even when she’s not hunting.

Whether it’s to show your support of the military, show that you love the outdoors, or make  a lifestyle statement about hunting, here are 10 ways to wear it this fall season. Or, hey … you might be one of those folks who likes the fact that you can pair a lot of different pieces of clothing with one piece of camo.
