Olive is the New Black

The color olive or military green seems to be a big color for this upcoming season. As spring approaches, olive is a great neutral that should be spring’s new black in everyone’s closet. While black will never totally be gone from a sophisticated women’s wardrobe, it can be a little harsh for spring and summer. Olive can tastefully replace black for a light and carefree spring day. As olive is warm in its undertone, it is an ideal neutral that teams well with so many other colors, such as warm blues, orange, coral pink, red violet and camel just to name a few. If you are blonde, team olive with soft, smoky warm colors in lighter tones. If you are brunette, mix your olives with the darker shades with a little more intensity.
