My New Go-to Neutral: Olive Green

23 July 2018


I'm finding my love for the color olive green has heightened quite a bit lately. Especially in my wardrobe. In fact it seems to have merged right in there as a go-to neutral. Not sure I have actually considered it a neutral until now, but it makes perfect since to be one. Neutrals go with everything and I'm finding olive green very well fits in that category. It's a nice soft change from our beloved black and I'm all over it!

Generally we see more of the earthy shade during the fall months. But I have really enjoyed seeing it year around lately. Not only does it compliment all skin tones. But pulls off both cool and warm sides of the tone spectrum beautifully. I haven't come across a color combo it doesn't pair well with.

My dress has been in and out of stock, but I linked a few other pieces I'm also loving in the color.

    I have a couple of items in this shade, too, and I agree that it’s a lovely color — and not just in the fall. I love those tess pants you featured as well.

    Oh yes! I definitely consider olive a neutral – especially for redheads! It’s so beautiful and complimentary. I especially love wearing it in autumn – so this post has me super excited for the upcoming season!

      Yes, I think greens in general look great on redheads. Autumn will be here before we know it!

    That dress looks so comfortable yet looks so good too! What a great color too. I think it’s perfect for late summer and can easily transition into fall.
