It is part of the kale colors!
It is a color in the color palette of the year 2017!
It is a color that embraces nature in a powerful way!
It is olive-green!
Olive green sure made rounds all year 2017 and for sure, the color is here to stay!
HOW OLIVE GREEN LOOKS LIKE?
It is a kale color; I mean, a warm and earthy shade of green but looks like a mixture of dark green and light brown where the green becomes dominant if not a mixture of yellow, green, red and brown.
BEST OLIVE GREENS ARE?
The color is especially designed for skinny pants which look most stylish and easy to wear. Olive green jeans are pretty much the definition of a statement piece and thus not for the faint-hearted. But hopefully, with the proper pair, anyone can wear olive-green jeans, fashionista or not!
Again, kimonos , dusters and long vests certainly come out so well in olive-green. It is no wonder I opted for such a duster.
Also, I’ve seen tops coming out in olive-green especially chiffon tops; and dresses will also look great in olive-green.
Generally, olive-green is an easy color that can go so well when designed for any outfit but yes, the design of the outfit should be something sleek to liven up the kinda dull color.I mean, the color is not too bright and not too boring thus allows it to be paired with other colors like navy’s, blacks, whites and brights without looking out-of-place.
HOW TO WEAR OLIVE GREEN
Since the color is a neutral tone, it will look so great in neutral shades as well. For example: blacks and whites. This look is for the minimalist of color especially those who can’t afford to wear too bold. I love Yemi Alade ‘s dress…it’s a jungle green dress.
When pairing olive-green with bold colors, opt for a minimalist look. I mean, choose a blend of only two colors. For example: olive-green and yellow or olive-green and red. Another example could be when wearing a green top; Try and keep the rest of your outfit pretty neutral and light, especially when you’re going for a more casual vibe in order to allow the green to do all the talking thus allowing your outfit not to look overpowered with lots of different green colors.
ACCESSORIZING OLIVE GREEN
Learn to accessorize your color subtly. How?
Ensure you keep your accessory shades in the same family of your blocked colors; that is if you opted for the color blocking option. I have for a number of times tried accessorizing my jungle green look with red when I’d worn a red top and it looked lovely!
You can also embrace metallic and wear golden accessories. This is a really sleek look. I mean…gold itself is as gorgeous and when it is worn on jungle green, the look becomes way too gorgeous! Every fashion lover should be getting more and more gold into their closets, right?
HOW I WORE MY OLIVE GREEN DUSTER
No wardrobe is complete without a go-to-everywhere outer wear. With its open-front button-down silhouette, short-sleeved and high-low design, and super glam grace, a quite long duster is the ultimate wardrobe essential. And when it has a removable belt, it defines the modern woman’s appeal of waist cinching when necessary, that’s if not worn open.
I opted for an olive-green duster which is a blend of cotton and polyester thus light. I wore a black set: black bralette top and black faux leather pants then layered my duster before belting it up and finishing off the look with grey pointed heels.
Well, Dalene really has guts!Pairing my olive green with a pair of faux leather pants. Why them? I wanted to greatly liven up this dull green by wearing such a bold fabric that would instantly attract attention. That’s just me lol!
I look gorgeous,right?
