Olive Green: The Unlikely Hero of Your Spring/Summer Wardrobe

Olive Green: The Unlikely Hero of Your Spring/Summer Wardrobe

Move over cherry red, because olive green is stepping into the spotlight. Yep, you heard that right. Olive green, the color of martini garnishes and camouflage, is ready to take over your wardrobe. We're here to show you how to spice up an outfit with olive green accessories like bags and wallets.

We took notice of the color trend in S/S ‘24 collections such as Ami, JW Anderson, and Jil Sander. Cemented by its reappearance in F/W ‘24 Gucci, Prada, and Fendi collections, it’s safe to say olive green is in.

Olive green's history can be traced back to ancient times, particularly in the Mediterranean region. The color is named after the olive fruit, which has been a symbol of peace, wisdom, and victory since antiquity. The ancient Greeks and Romans associated the olive tree and its fruit with gods and goddesses such as Athena, who gifted the olive tree to Athens. After World War II, olive green transitioned from the battlefield to the fashion runway. Surplus military clothing became popular among civilians, particularly within the counterculture movements of the 1960s and 70s. The utilitarian aesthetic of olive green jackets, pants, and accessories found a new audience among those seeking practical yet stylish attire.

Why olive green is your new BFF

Think of olive green as the cooler, more interesting cousin of your standard neutrals. It has the same versatility as black, white, or khaki but with a little more oomph. We love it used as a pop of color to neutral outfit, or going big by sporting an array of green shades. Olive green doesn’t overpower other colors and can complement both bold and subdued outfits. It's hard to go wrong. 

Olive green is one of those rare hues that flatters all skin tones. Whether you're a fair-skinned beauty or a deep-toned goddess, olive green will make you glow and enhance your natural complexion. Olive green exudes an effortless chic vibe. It’s understated yet stylish, allowing you to look put-together without trying too hard. This makes it perfect for those days when you want to look good with minimal effort.

This color is as at home in the office as it is at your fancy dinner party. An olive green dress can take you from a business meeting (just add a blazer) to cocktails with the girls (ditch the blazer and add some statement earrings). Versatility, thy name is olive green.

How to incorporate olive green into your wardrobe

Not ready to drop money on a new pair of expensive designer olive green boots quite yet? Start small! At Cold Gold, we recently launched a new line of wallets and keychains. Our Pop Wallet is a chic cardholder that pops open to expose a compartment that is large enough to stow folded bills, cards, and coins. The Pop Wallet can easily transform into a full fledged wristlet by attaching our matching Knot Keychain. It's perfect for dipping your toe into the new trend.


How to style our favorite olive green handbags

At Cold Gold, we're all about functionality and versatility, without sacrificing looks. Our TriSling bag can be worn one of three ways: as a crossbody sling, wristlet or clutch; making it a breeze to style. For a casual everyday look, style our sling bag with an off-white button down, black trousers, and a pair of trainers. For a more dressed up look, remove the detachable strap to sport our TriSling bag as a clutch. Pair it with a lime green maxi dress and a pair of heels. The TriSling fits the essentials like: your smartphone, sunglasses, credit cards, and a lip balm. Our handsfree crossbody sling bag is super convenient when traveling, shopping, or seeing a concert.

The newest addition to our leather handbags is the Duo Bag. Our two strap settings allow for you to wear it shorter as a chic wristlet OR wear it as a longer slouchy shoulder bag. In fact, that's why we call it Duo! It's the perfect size for fitting your wallet, phone, sunglasses, and other accessories, but no so big that you feel like you're endlessly digging for your belongings. The photo above illustrates how our Duo Bag really elevates a classic white shirt and denim look. For something more bold, we're picturing the Duo paired with a metallic silver party dress and pair of platforms. Olive green is a total chameleon. It’s versatile, it’s chic, and it pairs well with just about anything in your wardrobe. It also makes for a perfect alternative to a classic black handbag.

Olive green might not have been on your radar, but it’s time to change that. This color is the unsung hero of the fashion world, ready to elevate your spring and summer wardrobe with its understated elegance. So, go ahead and embrace the olive green trend. Mix, match, and most importantly, have fun with it. Remember, fashion is all about expressing yourself, and there’s no better way to do that than with a color that’s as chic and stylish as you are.

So, are you ready to make olive green your new go-to? Trust me, your wardrobe will thank you. And who knows, maybe you’ll start seeing the world through olive-tinted glasses.
