While falling leaves and crisp air means the return of sweaters, booties and jeans, it also marks the return of our favorite autumn shades. This year, olive green is our cool weather color crush – and we can’t wait to let it take over our closets. If you love this hue as much as we do, here are three trendy ways to wear it this fall:
1. As a focal point
While our first favorite look features a solid-colored top, this olive green ensemble is anything but simple. Add stylish detail with texture or accessories; then add a mock neck or cut-out sleeves. Pair with dark wash denim for a classic-chic look, or choose to go bold with paisley print leggings. If you opt for the latter, stick to wine, cream and brown – they’re the perfect shades to complement to your fall wardrobe.
2. As an accent
Fall fashion has always been all about layering, so don’t be afraid to rock a vest or light jacket. Wear solid, olive outwear with a pattern like plaid, then pair with classic blue jeans or simple black leggings. For the perfect finishing touch to your laidback, autumn look, add neutral ankle booties and dainty, metallic jewelry.
3. As an accessory
There’s no such thing as too much olive, so why not wear it with your accessories as well? Choose a cross-body style for a casual day out and a small matching clutch to go inside (or hold alone!). Our favorite styles feature braided details and fringe tassels.
If you can’t get enough of this trendy autumn shade, it looks great on dad and the kids, too! When paired with casual denim or a fall-inspired flannel, your fam will look just as runway-ready as you do.
