People Who Accidentally Blended Into Their Surroundings

Camouflage is an effective tool for animals in the wild who need to stalk their prey. Even humans use this technique in times of war in order to sneak up on the enemy. And as the most advanced species on the planet, we humans can be really good at blending in. In fact, sometimes people find themselves disappearing into their surroundings without even trying! This list of fashionistas who inadvertently blended in is full of people whose outfits did the camouflaging for them.

Cool color palettes and design trends are not limited to clothing; you might see certain styles mirrored in wallpaper, phone cases, even airport decor. So it's not surprising that your favorite outfit could match the exact pattern on a bus seat, cafeteria floor, or hotel hallway. Fortunately for all of us, someone was around to capture these serendipitous moments. 

Take a look at this awesome list of people who matched their surroundings. Some of these are so accurate, you won't believe they weren't intentional! Don't forget to rank your favorite accidental camouflage picture!
