Taste of Style – It’s Camo Season!
Hunting season is officially upon us, and even if you don't spend your spare time sitting perched on a deer stand, you're probably familiar with the season's biggest fashion trend: camouflage!
Thanks to the Robertson family of 'Duck Dynasty,' camo is making its way into the high fashion world. The Robertsons even admit they helped the trend that country artists are frequently seen sporting. Maybe the goal is to blend in with your surroundings, but we still see you lookin' fancy, Faith Hill, Brantley Gilbert and Luke Bryan!
Check out the wide array of camo fashions, including undies (ooo-la-la!), tank tops, Daisy Dukes and more in this week's Taste of Style.
When it comes to awards shows, Danielle Bradbery dresses to the nines! 'The Voice' winner knows how to wear a designer gown and heels with the best of them, but the Texas girl isn't afraid of a little camo every now and then. For one of her shows, Bradbery added a feminine flare to some camo skinny pants. She paired an oversized tunic top with the pants for a casual look, and although she may not wear it hunting, we give this shade of camo a 10!
The leader of BG Nation is a huge fan of camo. Gilbert is frequently photographed wearing camo tank tops, no matter where he is! In this behind-the-scenes shot from the 'Small Town Throwdown' video he's rockin' just that look (gun not included). Although his record label pal Justin Moore isn't wearing any of the disguising material in this shot, he does have one incredible camo accessory: Moore was given a camouflage guitar to play in his 'Backwoods' video, and it was love at first sight.
"Probably my favorite thing about it is my guitar," Moore admits. "They made me a camouflage guitar for the video. It’s the simple things in life that make me happy!"
Tim McGraw's wife may be the last person you'd expect to see donning some hunting gear -- especially while on the red carpet -- but she does! Her camo is doing what it does best and blending in here. Can you spot the cleverly masked green? At the 2013 ACM Awards, Hill sported a black lace Chado Ralph Rucci dress with three-quarter-length sleeves and a big slit! She looked super sexy with her slim legs peeking out and the buttons on the dress primarily left open. On her feet she wore Christian Dior peep-toes and she carried a Roger Vivier clutch. So, where's the camouflage? In a place McGraw probably doesn't want you looking. Under her floor-length gown, Hill apparently wore camouflaged short shorts to make sure all of her assets were concealed. Camo at its classiest!
Jessie James Decker
If you follow Jessie James Decker on social media, you know the brunette beauty has no shame. Although she was born in Italy, she is a self-proclaimed "hillbilly at heart." In an Instagram photo she posted while preggo, she sported no makeup (how does she look that good?!) and a camouflaged hat from Nashville's Loser's Bar. Decker even captioned it with the hashtag "#hillbillyatheart." She's the best looking hillbilly we've ever seen!
Much like Hill, Jase Robertson wore a little camo gear in the unlikeliest of places: the red carpet. The 'Duck Dynasty' member is sporting ... oops! Where’d he go? Just kidding. Robertson put on a pair of real camouflaged pants just before the 61st Annual BMI Awards. We'd bet these are a pair Robertson would even wear while using his duck call in the backwoods of Louisiana! To be fair, he did dress them up, wearing a dark grey jacket on top. Lucky for us, the photographers were there to capture this great face before Robertson disappeared into the background!
During CMA Fest, Kellie Pickler showed her fans she knows just how to party. She also proved that despite wearing a hunter green tank top, she is still quite the lady! Pickler dressed casual for the high summer temps, pairing her camo tank with dark jeans. While on stage, she carried a 'Red Solo Cup' and made Toby Keith proud! Pickler's ready for a Nashville party, for sure.
This Week's Fashion Diva: Luke Bryan!
Although it was hard to see him in all that camo, it's obvious Luke Bryan makes hunter sexy look effortless. Whether shooting with his pals Jason Aldean and former Atlanta Braves third baseman, Chipper Jones, or just spending time reeling in a few fish, Bryan sports the disguising material a lot. We never thought we'd be so excited to see camouflage! He credits Cabela's for a lot of his hunting and fishing gear. And if you can believe it, last year, Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry let it slip that Bryan wears the print on his undies ... (yes, we're picturing it). Seriously, give us a minute.
When Perry and Bryan hosted the CMA Fest TV special, they shared a space near their dressing rooms, which is where she saw the goods haphazardly lying around. "Well, Luke's clothes were kind of strewn all out in the middle of the middle space, including his camouflage underwear," she explains. "I'm not sure why he wasn't wearing them, but they were on the floor."
So You Think You Know Luke Bryan ...
