Mix things up by pairing flowy tops with cargo joggers for a feminine take on the trend, or go classic camo with camouflage pants paired with a cropped graphic tee.

Start from the bottom up with Lived-In Cargo pants featuring light distressing and cargo pockets or with Trekker Joggers made from soft, lightweight twill, then add your favorite neutral-colored t-shirts and button-up shirts.
