Happy Monday, friends! Cyndi Spivey and I are continuing with our fall fashion series styling fall color trends, and I have another sold-out jacket to share with you today. 🤪 I’m truly sorry, it seems like inventory is moving faster than ever this fall.
Army green is one of my favorite colors to wear this time of year, although for the purposes of this post, we should really be calling it olive because the exact Pantone color that is trending this fall is called Olive Branch.
At any rate, my jacket is really more of a sage green than army green or olive, but all shades of green are trending this fall. I really like this lighter shade for pairing with light wash jeans.
Last week I styled a dark green corduroy utility jacket two ways, and this is yet another variation on that simple outfit formula.
I kept the color palette on the cooler side with the green jacket, light wash jeans, and white tee; but then I added some warmth with cognac brown boots and bag. There are a few sizes left in this jacket, and it’s true to size. Also, you can save 15% at Evereve with code SEPTEMBER.
These are the NYDJ Marilyn stretch jeans that I picked up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a few months ago. I like this more relaxed fit for a change. They look really good with a bit of a heel. This is the Sea Shore color, and I did size down in these; I’m wearing the 4.
The boots I’m wearing are Marc Fisher. He does a really good pair of fashion boots, but his prices are getting higher every year. I recommend waiting for a sale.
This cognac color is a classic, especially for fall, but it took a back seat to taupe and white over the past few seasons. I’m glad to see it gaining popularity again this season.
And I carried a bag that coordinates with the boots. I don’t always match my shoes and bag, but in this case, I like the combination and the way these two pieces contrast against the lighter colors in the outfit.
I’m also wearing a Victoria Emerson animal print wrap bracelet that brings in a little bit more of these warm brown tones.
I like how these delicate pieces add some interest and bling to the look but aren’t overpowering. Bold jewelry can be fun sometimes, but these more delicate styles are a better fit for my personal style.
Army green utility pants are another fun way to incorporate this hue into your fall wardrobe. I wore these with a cream top and sandals for a late summer look, but they will also look great with mules, ankle boots, and fashion sneakers this fall.
See my post on 5 ways to wear olive utility pants for more ideas like this, and remember to use code SEPTEMBER for 15% off at Evereve.
While army green utility jackets and pants are classic fall wardrobe pieces, this season we’re seeing army green across all clothing and accessory categories. For example, I love how this convertible leather backpack in the army green complements a neutral outfit.
See the full outfit here.
This army green bag also looks great paired with shades of rust. Basically, just treat army green like another neutral in your closet.
Green shoes and boots are another way to incorporate this color trend into your fall looks. I just ordered these platform loafers in the Alpine Green to try, and these boots in the Greek Olive are fun too.
