Fall is probably my favorite season. I love the crispness in the air (or, at least in LA, the promise of crispness!), the turning of the leaves, eating apples, making homey dinners, and wearing cozy sweaters. And even though I no longer attend school, September is still, in my mind, the beginning of school and so, I still associate it with “fall shopping.” There’s just something about those new sweaters and boots that gets me as excited as a teen!
I’m going to do a post on fall fashion trends soon, so for now I just wanted to focus on an item that I love and that isn’t necessarily a new trend, but is nonetheless evocative of fall. Olive green is one of those colors. And though you can wear it year round, and I definitely do, it just says “fall” to me.
Whether you call it moss, army, khaki, or olive green, it works well with the other fall neutrals of grey and brown, and can work in both casual and dressy situations. And, it looks amazing with both black and white (and we know how I love those colors!)
|Here Olivia Palermo mixes her olive green jacket with browns and tans, along with a scarf in black and white.
|Okay, this sweater might be slightly dark to be considered olive green, but I’m going with it anyway! Love it! And those shoes!!
|Looks great with white (this is when you can still wear your olive green come spring!
|This coat though! But seriously, I’m loving the olive green with the grey/silver of the coat – it works so well!
|Olive on olive.
