Friday Favorite Finds: Olive

Written by Hannah Lyons

Happy Friday everyone! I’m especially eager for the weekend, because the temperature has dropped more than twenty degrees here in the past week! Thus far, I’ve waited patiently for the cooler weather to present itself. Alas, it is finally here!

This Friday we are continuing with our Fall 2016 Color Story. In case you missed our past weeks Friday Favorite Finds, we’ve covered pink and leopard and this Friday’s color choice is olive!

Ya’ll… I seriously can’t get enough of this shade of green. While leopard and pink can be worn in multiple seasons like spring and summer, olive is pretty much constrained to fall. When fall arrives, I don’t waste any time in pulling out my olive pieces. Who among us doesn’t have or need an army green jacket for fall?

Bonus tip: Shop our three favorites army green jackets here, here, and here.

I specifically like dense olive green, almost an army tint. As for mixing colors, don’t be afraid to mix olive with other neutrals like camel and black. Olive also pairs perfectly with the color pink!
