After I posted about camo pants a few weeks back, some of you were asking how we’d style them for work.  They might not be appropriate for the most conservative office, but I think they could work well in almost any other office setting.  Here are here are four ways I’d wear them to work.  

How To Dress Up Camo Pants For Work

1. Camo Pants + Black Blazer 

The first thing that always comes to my mind when I think “office” is a blazer, so I thought I’d start there.  I love the longer length of this blazer, and adding pumps and a belt helped to dress up the pants a bit. (That one is always being restocked, but I love the length of this blazer too . . . it comes in regular and petite sizes and a ton of colors.)

2. Camo Pants + Romantic Blouse 

This romantic blouse helps to offset the utilitarian feel of the pants. I love the tie around the neck and I’m especially digging the fact that it’s under $30. It definitely feels more expensive, and it also comes in black. I’m wearing a small and it was just a bit too tight in the bust (nursing boobs).  A medium would have been perfect.

3. Camo Pants + Crewneck Sweater + Collared Shirt

This cashmere sweater is one of my favorites. It washes well, comes in a number of colors and is under $100. I layered it over a Portofino shirt from Express and added a silver collar necklace. The Portofino shirts don’t button all the way up to the neck, but I feel like this particular combo would look even better if it did (like this shirt).

4. Camo Pants + Monochromatic Blouse + Burgundy Boots

I loved the monochromatic look, especially when I added a pop of color with the boots. This is my favorite tunic top (I styled it as a dress here), and it can easily be layered over a cami to offset the low neckline.

  1. I bought a pair of cami pants after your last post, and even though I didn’t think they were me I’m really glad I got them! I’ve worn mine with a black blazer as well as with a romantic blouse!! Thanks for pushing me out of my comfort zone!

  2. I’ve been in a black shirt/black blazer (for work) and graphic tee/sweatshirt (for weekends) rut with my camo pants. You’ve inspired me to pull out and ivory blouse and my new camel flats as a work outfit this week. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Thank you, Scotti! This is perfect timing for me. I just picked up a pair exactly like yours in a J Crew “final sale,” and I’ve been wanting to wear them to work (tomorrow, since I don’t have meetings but do teach a class at night! Freshmen don’t seem to care much about what’s “office appropriate.”) You’ve given me so many ideas. I may start with the cami/blazer combo.

    How do we feel about pairing all the fall rust/terra-cotta/brass/marigold tops with this? I am certain it works with marigolds and rust as long as the style/texture of the shirt is right. All the new Everlane tops in the “Brass” color are just SOOOO good, and I think they’d look great with camo or olive.
