   The style of teens today seems to have no basic margin. People just wear whatever. Yoga pants, leggings, skinny jeans, baggy jeans, running shorts, basketball shorts; there is just no specific line people seem to follow anymore. The same thing goes for camouflage.
Once upon a time, it was used for blending into the woods when one was hunting. In the present, camouflage can be found on purses, backpacks, scarves, shirts; pretty much one can just add “camouflage” as a color option for anything that can be purchased. Additionally, there are no longer limits pertaining to the social group camouflage is meant for. Now the people who fall into the category of “prep” can be seen sporting the forest look — with much time and thought behind how it looks, of course. So whether someone is young or old, chic or sloppy, be assured that there is a camouflage style that is sure to fit anyone.
