Olive You So Much

Olive green is making an epic comeback this Spring. Go green in more than one way.

Tops, bottoms, playsuits, jumpsuits, bodysuits, dresses, jackets, shoes, and even accessories, such as hats and scarves, have even been found manufactured by major retail stores. Similarly, Fenty x Puma, Louis Vuitton, Sonia Rykiel and Versus Versace all displayed stunning olive green pieces and accessories. At this year’s New York Fashion Week, Versus Versace, in particular, debuted olive green lace-up boots, strappy sandals, purses, and sunglasses, during their runway show.

Specifically, Steve Madden and Addidas have both released a variety of styles of shoes in this deep tone, which are both picture below.

For more affordable prices, worldwide retail stores, such as ASOS, Tobi, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and Steve Madden, carry olive green pieces in all different styles. Essentials for this upcoming spring definitively include olive green, making it one of the most popular go-to color for the Spring and Summer.

Olive green is a versatile color and a great way to accent your outfit. The army green looks great when the green is complimented with any black, or dark wash, or nude tones.

Olive green is the new black. The army green, or kale green, is ideal for outerwear in particular, as army green military-style jackets and trench coats have been “in” since this past Fall.

Olive Green can be worn during all seasons. However, olive green more specifically works well in the Spring and the Fall, making it one of the most versatile hues.

This color can be worn dressed up or down. Most designers have taken a grungier approach to their green pieces, adding a tough, military-esque vibe.

At this year’s New York Fashion Week, spring/summer 2017 runway shows were filled with olive green pieces, specifically coats, bomber jackets, and trench coats, in the color olive green.

Deep hues, such as olive green, are captivating against all skin tones, making it a versatile color palette customized for all skin tones. Everyone from light to dark can feel beautiful in this color.

It seems as though the olive green is here to stay, even past Saint Patrick’s Day. Post-Saint Patrick’s Day and post-New York Fashion Week, olive green, or kale, made several appearances all over the runways.

Salvatore Ferragamo showed off his perspective on the trend with a fitted and flared scalloped dress, and included an olive green trench coat to tie the look in.

Similarly, Altuzarra debuted a dazzling trench coat in the army green color that is just so desirable this season.

To think that New York Fashion Week was centered around the green color palette is silly, however, even Balmain debuted an olive green ensemble, with an olive green trench coat, and a sheer, and flowy two-piece dress.

Not only does this trend look good on every individual, but it also symbolizes nature and the healthy lifestyle that comes with Spring and Summer. So, as you prepare for your Summer body, olive your green.
