Could you wear one print, style or color for five days in a row—in five different ways? That’s the challenge we’ve been giving to stylish women we know… Next up, Laurel Pantin, a New York-based editor, stylist and Editorial and Fashion Director of Coveteur, who proves that camo is all about standing out—not blending in—this fall.


DAY ONE: THE CAMO CARGO PANT

Skinny cargo pant in camo print (available 8/2), academy loafers in calf hair and Signet flap bag in Italian leather with detachable bag strap.


“I’ve always liked camo but never really got too into it—so I was excited to see new ways I could wear it. I love how it looks with more classic fabrics, like this crisp cotton shirt.”

DAY TWO: THE CAMO PATCH-POCKET PANT

Laurel wears our camouflage patch-pocket pant, one-shoulder bow top in stripe (available 8/2) and orbit earrings.


“These pants fit just how I like them—high waisted, wide legged and cropped. And they look great contrasted with the girly
one-shoulder top.”

DAY THREE: THE ROMPER

Laurel, walking to Casa Magazines in the West Village, wears our romper in Tencel®-linen, camo T-shirt, Dragon Diffusion™ bucket bag (available 8/15) and satin slides with floral embellishments.

“This magazine store is across the street from my apartment, and it’s the best. They always help me find back issues of magazines when I want to catch up!”


“I love everything about this romper—it’s like that magical piece you find at a vintage or surplus store that everyone forever asks where it’s from. It feels super ‘me.’”

DAY FOUR: THE CAMO JACKET

Laurel, at Sant Ambroeus in the West Village, wears our camouflage utility shirt-jacket, new perfect-fit T-shirt in stripe and Collection rose-gold fluted skirt. “My favorite way to unwind after a long work day is drinking a Negroni with my husband.”


“I’m into anything sparkly. I also really like the stripes and camo combo. I wear a lot of stripes and a lot of leopard and treat both like neutrals.”

DAY FIVE: THE CAMO SWEATER


“I’m from Texas, so anything double denim works for me!”

Nicely done, Laurel.

OK, your turn. Instagram your own personal spin on camo with the hashtag #jcrewchallenge.
