Olive Green Goes with Everything

Olive Green Jacket Outfit

Olive green goes with everything this season, making it the new neutral.  Pantone chose Olive Branch symbolizing growth and that is positively perfect for 2021.

Below you’ll find several ways to style this core classic color (with shoppable links and widgets). 

Need help to pull off this trend?  Schedule a personal styling appointment (virtual options available) and I can help you leave your following army green with envy.

Color Block Staple

A must have staple in everyone’s closet is the jacket.  Why?

  • The jacket elevates the corporate casual dress code
  • You look “put together” when out on date night or with the girls
  • The lightweight fabric wears comfortably, even indoors

As this season’s new neutral, the olive green jacket is a show stopper.  cabi’s Academy Blazer fits right in to a trademark outfit combo I described in Best Ways to Start a Capsule Wardrobe.

To complete the look, add a black cross body bag (shown here is Stella McCartney)

Finish off with olive green shoes. (Shown above is vintage cabi but I’m including similar alternatives).

Patterned for Perfection

Weave olive green into a plaid pattern.  The classic look shown here is paired with the cabi Dinner Trouser and cabi Snapshot Top

Pull the outfit together with chunky gold jewelry and top off with animal print shoes.

Styled for All Color Pallets

Another way to wear this trend is in a trouser, like the cabi Academy Trouser.  For cooler skin tones, this is perfect because you can pair back to something that compliments your complexion and the army green trend. 

Warmer skin tones, you can do the same thing!
