How "Camp" Can Become Part of Your Everyday Fashion.
The 2019 Met Gala has brought Camp, and all it has to offer, to an all time high in the mainstream media. This year's theme, Camp : an aesthetic style that brought us over the top, anything goes, extravagant outfits and looks. From Lady Gaga’s four piece costume performance, to Jared Leto strutting the carpet with a replica of his own head, it is clear that Camp means something different to everyone. The question is, how can you bring Camp into your own everyday wardrobe?
Camp is all about an individual expression. It is individual style and the freedom that comes with self expression. Being comfortable in your own skin and sharing it with the world. One can tell a story through their appearance, accessory, and or clothing. Because the flamboyant trend has endless interpretation, there is no one right way to execute it. Wanting to participate in this new wave of fashion doesn't mean you have to clean out your wardrobe completely.

Perhaps Camp is a bit much for you, maybe it reaches a little bit too far out of your fashion comfort zone. Fear not!
