Over the last few years, camouflage has become a fashion trend that many people can?t ignore. We all know that the fabric was originally made for soldiers to go undetected in jungle environments, but it turns out that it?s actually a cool design. It can be used for anything from headbands to shoes and everything in between. One new trend is the advent of camo sunglasses. Numerous prominent sunglass brands have released their own camo designs and all of them tend to look amazing.
