Olive green is a classic neutral that lets you inject a little color into your look in an understated and sophisticated way. It used to be reserved for autumnal dressing, but it’s been gaining ground recently, becoming more of a seasonless shade. We’ve been seeing this earthy hue on the streets this summer and making an appearance in fall’s upcoming looks. Here are five pieces that you could sport now and ease you into cooling fall weather.


An olive green linen button-up shirtdress is a perfect swimsuit cover up. In the fall, layer on other pieces like a pair of skinny jeans or leggings and tall leather boots to give it cool-weather edge.

Sleeveless Safari JacketSleeveless Safari Jacket

Summer has been all about the sleeveless, olive twill safari jackets, giving a little oomph to little dresses. This chic little overcoat will stay fresh come fall, too, with a long sleeve T underneath and a pair of boyfriend denim.

Wide-Leg TrousersWide-Leg Trousers

The wide-leg trousers takeover that started this summer is sure to carry on through the fall. Try them in a lightweight olive cotton and pair them with cropped tanks now, and a long sleeve T or shrunken blazer to make them fall-right.

Cargo SkinniesCargo Skinnies

Olive green skinnies (in a light/medium weight cotton twill) are obvious in the fall with denim jackets, but you can sport them now with slinky tops and barley-there heels to give the menswear-inspired piece a more whimsical element.

Pleated Maxi SkirtPleated Maxi Skirt

An olive chiffon pleated maxi is effortlessly chic in the summer. Throw it on with a plain white tank: instant fashion moment. The pleats let the airy piece work well into fall too, giving it enough visual texture to stand up to heavier pieces like chunky knitted sweaters.
