OLIVE – Fall’s Military Inspired Color

olive falls military inspired color fall
For this fall, martini’s aren’t the only place you might be seeing olive(s).  Olive is back in the spotlight for many reasons.  The military angle is certainly strong this fall, as is all things hunting, camping and camouflage.  And we have been wearing plaids and ginghams for quite some time now, so let’s call Olive the perfect palate cleanser.

We rounded up some of our favorite olive fall pieces from a variety of brands we like:

Coach – Quilted with a brown suede shooting patch on one shoulder, has a stow-away hood, zippered closures at the cuffs, and shirttail hem to keep you protected from the wind. This sporty jacket is tailor fit and has a bit of dressed-up hunting vibe.

Aether – Lightweight pullover hoodie made from 2-layer duo fold cotton jersey. This fabric was originally developed by the U.S. Army for their Extended Cold Weather Clothing System. It combines softness with thermal properties making it great alone, or as a layering piece.

Howe – This jersey short sleeve t-shirt emblazoned with RPBLC CLFRNA. Great it’s own, or perfect for a layering piece, for all you West Coast lovers.

Burkman Bros. – With ribbed waistband and cuff, this woven cotton style is a cross between a fatigue and an athletic pant. It’s two front hand pockets and back patch pockets, and zip fly and button closure, make it perfect for any weekend.

G.H. Bass – With a suede upper and sturdy non-marking sole, it’s a shoe that takes you from work to weekends. The Pasadena Buc is a rugged oxford, but can still be worn like a dressed-down dress shoe for your favorite pair of denim.

Cole Haan– The Greenwich Messenger bag is made of soft Italian leather, and is very multi-functional. With two external pockets (one with a magnetic closure) and three interior pockets. One of inside pockets is for your laptop, a second pocket for files, and the third, a zip closure, for your secret stash.

Skagen – Seamlessly blending natural elements with modern design, Skagen, designed in Denmark, features a jet-black steel dial connected with an olive leather strap.
