Every season there seems to be a new It color that rises out of the abyss and becomes one we never knew we needed in our wardrobes. We obsess over these color trends and live our lives in them until we wear them thin. (I think I have enough Millennial Pink in my closet to last me a lifetime.) But the next cool color? Olive green. From fashion-forward looks to minimalistic ensembles, our CF Community Members know how to make the color their own. If you’re feeling stumped on how to pull of the color of the moment, we’ve rounded up five olive-green looks to try.
Pair It With a Denim Skirt and Solid Shirt Combo
If you want to start simple, pair an olive-green jacket with a go-to denim skirt and a turtleneck. The foundation for this look is incredibly easy and brings emphasis to the color of the jacket.
Get Fancy With a Matching Set
A coordinated top and shorts combo is the perfect way to nail the color trend. For a polished look that doesn’t feel like a uniform, go with a dressier material like silk.

Go Bold With a Puffer Coat
Sometimes the best way to show off a trend is to go big, and this cozy coat is the perfect way to do that. Plus, it creates instant protection from the frigid winter cold in addition to being Instagrammable.
Double Up on Olive
Wearing different shades of the same color creates an unexpectedly cohesive look and draws attention to the hue itself. We love the monochromatic look paired with simple black booties.
Personalize a Bomber Jacket
Take a DIY approach to your look by embellishing a bomber jacket with patches. The individuality of this outfit is a great conversation starter.
