Winter olives are nothing new. Although olive is a shade I don’t regularly wear all year round because it is more suitable for fall, I love injecting this color into my wardrobe once in a while to amp up my looks.
Styling an olive hue can be intimidating for some people but it is actually quite simple and effortless. I treat this color as I would any other neutral like beige or camel.
If you have a cargo jacket or any item in the olive shade just mix it with other neutral colors for a classic look. If you want to go bold, then infuse colors like burgundy, mustard yellow, fuschia, teal blue, and red into the mix and keep everything else in neutral.
Luckily, I didn’t pack away the short sleeve olive jacket that I bought at Zara in Sicily. I wore this outfit to work last week and it was cool enough to keep me warm but not too warm that would overheat my temperature.
Winter olives may not be a hue that is synonymous with winter, but it’s a perfect neutral color to embrace a wardrobe color change.
