All about the Olive!
As the season heads in to winter, the palates of our wardrobes mature. A tone of green has started popping up across the high street and throughout the department stores. Reminding every woman not the threat about the upcoming cold season as winter wardrobes are extremely fashionable!
In particular, there is one colour in which women everywhere crave throughout the summer season, olive green.
It hints towards the military trend. Which is a source of inspiration frequently circuiting the fashion conveyer belt. Ellie Saabs womenswear collection, opposite, shows how designers aspire to reinvent this trend. Because, they are aware that the masculine elements redesigned into womenswear, creates a sense of sensuality. As if implying the woman has just rolled out of her bed and grabbed her boyfriends’ item of clothing. Which also ties in with the boyfriend trend. Therefore the multiple referencing and timelessness of this tones concept, encourages some fashionistas to invest in more luxurious olive pieces.
On the other hand, if you are inspired by the trend but dislike the idea of second hand, why not explore army supply stores for brand new, authentic pieces.
However, If you too admire the colours historic referencing, but can not afford the designer versions, I would suggest a rummage around some of Manchester’s’ vintage shops. Such as Cow located in Northern Quarter. Which often has a great selection of olive green army jackets.
Alternatively, the trend can be worn with more femininity. As seen in this delicately crafted maxi skirt; which has been pressed in to an organ pleat.
However, the overall aesthetic, evokes a tougher attitude. This should be taken positively because it creates power dressing. After all, no outfit looks better than one worn with confidence! Which, is how the majority of women will feel when wearing this colour because its tones compliments and lifts every skin tone. Olive, also appears compatible with a wide range of colours. As identified here, the skirt has been accompanied by a thin blue knitted sweater and red thin strap heels, very fashion forward!Overall, reinforcing the tones strong wardrobe positioning for this coming season.
