I love the effect olive green has on bright colors– it seems to make them pop even brighter. So white jeans and red shoes stand out even more in its presence. It’s a perfect neutral in that way. It blends in and stands out.
And, of course, Isabel Marant’s rendering of olive is one of my favorites. Her military coat is different than the many others I own and wear all the time. It’s got a bit more personality and shape. And its tie front adds a feminine touch to what can otherwise be a boxy look. Color me smitten.
