Although we’re still in the heat of summer, our minds (and closets!) have begun the shift to fall. It’s about time to retire our vibrant, colorful staples and slowly transition back to autumn hues. In order to make the breakup a bit smoother, our longstanding color crush Olive Green is here to put a fresh spin on this season’s wardrobe – even before the leaves start to fall. If you’re as in love with this earthy hue as we are, read on for four ways to transition this shade from season to season.
Lingerie-Inspired Lace Tank Top
Wear It Now: For a work-appropriate summer ensemble, tuck this tank into a pencil skirt and throw a basic cardi over your shoulders. Complete the look with block heel sandals or simple ballet flats; then add a short statement necklace as an extra chic accessory. If your plans involve a day date or shopping spree instead, denim bottoms and strappy sandals create the perfect laidback look.
Wear It Later: To transition this tank from summer to fall, pair the top with an oversized ‘90s-esque blazer. The feminine floral print coordinates with the tank’s lacy details, and the silky material matches that of the olive green top. To add to the juxtaposition of dressy and relaxed styles, finish the outfit with distressed denim and neutral slip-ons or sneakers.
Embroidered Tank with Fringe Tassels
Wear It Now: Pair this olive tank with your go-to denim shorts for a casual, carefree look made for festivals or street fairs. The boho-inspired embroidery will be the focal point of your outfit – which means necklaces aren’t necessary and your earrings should be understated. Pull your hair back to let the details shine and finish the ensemble with cork slip-ons or strappy sandals.
Wear It Later: This top can transition to cooler temps in no time by adding a cozy cardigan in a neutral tan or cream. Add your favorite jeans or tuck the top into a midi, then opt for wedge booties or mules instead of sandals. This tank would also look great with a pair of colored jeans in another fall shade like burnt orange, cream or khaki.
Sheer Top with Ruffled Sleeves
Wear It Now: For a relaxed, yet temperature-appropriate look, try this sheer and breathable olive green tunic. The effortless flow of this top makes it easy to wear with anything, while the subtly ruffled sleeves still give it that statement look. Pair the tee with capris on a cool summer night, or your go-to denim skirt for a casual daytime vibe. To complete the outfit, add tan two-strap sandals to dress it up, or opt for velvet ballet flats for a more comfortable option. As for accessories, gold bangles and hoop earrings are just enough to complement this simple ensemble.
Wear It Later: As soon as fall hits, a top like this is perfect for any activity – day or night. The sheer, lightweight material can keep you cool during the day, and is easily paired with a denim jacket for a night out. Wear the top with black skinny jeans or clean-cut, denim capris to transition into two completely different looks. Finally, add gold, silver or a pop of yellow jewelry to elevate your fashion-forward fall outfit.
Suede Tee with Lace-Up Details
Wear It Now: This suede lace-up tee reminds us of all things boho, which is why it’s a natural pair for a flowy cotton skirt. Go simple with a solid, neutral midi-skirt, or pair it with a bolder patchwork style fabric. If you’d rather let the olive top do the talking, opt for a classic denim skirt or shorts when choosing your bottoms.
Wear It Later: To make this look more cool-weather-ready, add a cozy knit cardi and dark wash denim jeans. Complement the top’s tassels by choosing a sweater with fringe, then finish off the look with a pair of brown, faux leather booties. Metallic statement earrings or bracelets will make the outfit pop, while pulling your hair back will let the lace-up details shine
