I’ll be the first to admit that I really thought the camouflage trend would be short-lived. Well, boy howdy was I wrong! So yes, Betty Sue, you can still pull out your favorite camo and wear it with confidence this summer. That’s why I’m styling these darling camo crop pants today.
Now it turns out that the pants I’m sharing are not even labeled “camo.” They’re technically a tiger stripe print, but they definitely have that camo vibe. So we’re proceeding with the camo theme. Ha!
I was drawn to these pants because I bought some similar crop pants from Sanctuary last season in solid black, and I was hoping these would fit and feel as nice. Indeed, they do. So these Sanctuary Squad Crops are pricey, but I was able to get them on sale. Don’t worry, though. I’ve got a shopping widget full of great camo alternatives from the stores you love.
For more tips on styling similar pants, check out my recent post How to Style Floral Pants…so You Look Chic, Not Childish. All of those style tips apply to these camo print pants, too!
I’m wearing a true-to-size 8 or 29 in the Sanctuary Squad Crops. They’re made of a 97% Cotton, 3% Spandex blend, so they have a nice amount of stretch, but wear like a lightweight cotton pant.
I decided to play up the blue-ish stripes in my pants by topping them with a washed navy scoop neck t-shirt from Everlane. My tee is almost sold out, but it is available in other colors, too. You really can top your camo shorts, skirt or pants with most any solid colored tee for an understated chic look. But don’t hesitate to wear a graphic tee with them either.
I was so pleased that I had this pretty Indigo Blues Beaded Statement Necklace in my jewelry collection for the summer. Once again, it pulls the blue streaks in the pants to the forefront, while giving a nod to the green as well. The necklace is 30% off with code SUN. Unfortunately, the coordinating bracelet is no longer available.
I frequently am asked about these silver earrings. I wear them so very frequently. These French wire geo twirl earrings are from Brighton and they’re still available. They make such a nice everyday accessory. I like that they are lightweight and go with everything.
While I had the t-shirt tucked gently in the front for most of this photo shoot, I did want you to see that you can definitely wear it untucked, too. In fact, now that I’m looking at these photos, I think I prefer it untucked. These Sanctuary Squad Crops ride a little low on the waist (not very low, but definitely below the belly button), so I think the loose tee works well here.
I’ve included a lot of other great camo options in the shopping widget below. In fact, I recently ordered these camo cotton twill shorts . And I absolutely love these camo cargo shorts from Chico’s. But there are also great selections from Old Navy, Nordstrom, Banana Republic and Evereve in the shopping widget.

You will never waste a minute seeking true wisdom. Praying for and digging diligently for godly, biblical wisdom is not a fool’s errand, but a rich pursuit. When the voices of this world are clamoring for our attention and offering opinions and conventional wisdom, it takes diligence and prudence to quiet them long enough to focus on hearing the still small voice of Wisdom.
Make sure that you take time today to ask God for wisdom. He longs to give it to us, but only if we ask and seek and truly long for it. Grey hair does not assure us of wisdom. Laps around the block do not yield wisdom automatically either. The Bible tells us that the only way to grow in wisdom is to ask God for it, to seek it with passionate priority and to treasure it. Finally, God also assures us in His Word that He rewards wisdom to those who obey it. Are you seeking wisdom today?
I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
And I find knowledge and discretion.
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
“Counsel is mine and sound wisdom;
I am understanding, power is mine.
“By me kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
“By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge rightly.
“I love those who love me;
And those who diligently seek me will find me.
“Riches and honor are with me,
Enduring wealth and righteousness.
“My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold,
And my yield better than choicest silver. ~ Proverbs 8:12-19
