I love style challenges, especially the ones that take me out of my comfort zone! Today’s style challenge is all about olive, the newest neutral color this summer! Like most people, I was initially intimidated by this color because it has somewhat of a masculine and melancholy vibe to it. But surprisingly, when pairing it with other complementary colors, I find that olive is a very flattering and versatile color to work with and can be incorporated into just about any outfit. Above are two distinct looks I created in which olive was seamlessly incorporated into each of the outfits. Which one would you wear?

Casual Chic

Since I want olive to stand out, I’m pairing the top with light neutrals and adding in hints of pink to soften the look. This casual feminine outfit is super chic to run errands in or have brunch with your girlfriends.

Glam Chic

Nothing elevates an outfit more than a beautiful, fitted trench coat. In this look, I’m pairing the olive trench coat with a white dress shirt, nude sandal heels, and lots of gold accessories for that glam factor.

How would you incorporate olive into your wardrobe?
