The warm summer heat is almost upon us. This of course does not only mean that we will be getting a change in scenery, but we will also be getting a change in fashion trends! Of course more than just the type of clothes that go well in summer, we also have to consider the colors that go well with summer as well. For this year’s summer — consider olive green.
While our coats and jackets did their job of pulling off our curated looks during the winter and spring, now is the time to let loose and don clothes that are much more liberating, revealing, and downright bold! Olive green doesn’t only inspire feelings of freshness and peace in our minds, but it is also the color of new beginnings. So without further delay, here are some of the best fashion items that you can get in olive green this summer.
The best part about olive green is that it is a very versatile color. When you get your swimwear in this color, for example, you will be able to pull off a look that seems far more exotic. You can pull off swimwear in this color when you are on the beach because the dark intensity of the color gives a very good contrast to the natural lightness of the sand and of the water. If you wear these during your escapades to other bodies of water such as waterfalls and lakes, your look will blend in perfectly with the natural fauna of your surroundings.
Because you want to be able to expose more skin during the summer, you would look very daring when you try on an olive green top. This look is even more effective if you have a lighter skin tone because the dark hue of the color will make your skin radiate even more profoundly.
You could pull this look off with a pair of dark denim jeans or shorts. You have to make sure that you wear bottoms that have an equally intense color because with olive green, you want to be able to blend the hues of your outfit instead of letting them contrast.
While a dress that is plain black or white does really well in the colder seasons, when it comes to summer you want to be able to wear a dress that is both shorter and more vibrant. Getting an olive green dress that is just above the knee is a very good way to pull this off because not only will the dress fit the occasion if you are going to a formal event, it is something that you can even pull off while in the outdoors. Imagine yourself in a beach resort, taking a stroll and taking the fresh air in while wearing a dress like this.
When you think about the perfect bottoms of summer, you think about pulling off a look that makes you seem more active and more dynamic. That is what summer is all about, after all, it is about being vigorous, full of energy, and awake. An easy way to pull this off is by getting yourself a pair of olive green cargo shorts. The reason why this is so effective is that this can imitate the type of look that you would expect from someone in the military, and nothing gives off the feeling of being active better than that.
Once you have your main articles of clothing ready, having a few olive green accessories is also the perfect way to make your look seem more vibrant. The benefit of this color is that it is very prominent so having accessories with this color would really make them a bigger part of your look compared to how they would be if you chose to get them in a more plain and less intense color. If you wear a white bikini, for example, strolling around with an olive green hat and bag will add a ton of character to the look and make it that much more eye-catching.
