Before the 19th Century, most armies didn’t put a whole lot of thought into camouflage. Military technology of the time made sneak attacks a difficult proposition, and there wasn’t a whole lot of point in disguising yourself when you were part of a regiment marching in formation against another army doing the same. Opinions vary, but the United States military might have first gotten into camouflage during the Spanish-American War, when troops started smearing mud on their bright blue uniforms to make it tougher for enemy snipers to spot them.
After that, camouflage caught on fast. By the time America got involved in World War I, the Army was experimenting with uniforms designed by professional artists and designers who understood the effects of different color combinations. In modern times, of course, camouflage is the standard for military apparel, with different variations for every branch of service and field of battle. But for something that’s specifically designed not to be seen, you certainly seem to see camouflage everywhere these days!
Of course, hiding out is probably not the main purpose behind this particular camouflage ensemble, but you can bring a little of the combat zone to the costume party in this short, stretchy polyester dress. Featuring a modern camo print with gold trim, this dress includes a zipper down the entire front and a pair of patches reading “ARMY” and “Major Cutie.” Clearly, protective coloration has come a long way from the days of soldiers smearing mud on their uniforms!
