I Don’t Believe Red Is “Over”, But This Expensive-Looking Colour Trend Feels Much Fresher

As spring time takes the helm, I, like many others, feel ready for a bit of a refresh. Eager to shake off winter’s cobwebs, I’m utilising the new-seasons boost of energy to revive my tired wardrobe with some thoughtful spring-ready additions.

With blooms bursting on every corner, I’m newly inspired to work with a natural colours pallet that reflects the world around me. Whilst over the winter months the red colour trend ruled them all, the seasonal switch is seeing a pickup in the understated and elegant olive green colour trend and I’m here for it.

In a warm, earthy and natural hue the olive green colour trend is one of the easiest new-season shades to blend into your collection. Wearing well with the blacks and greys that dominate a winter wardrobe, now that spring is officially underway, I’ll be styling the shade with buttery yellows and bright whites to add some dimension to my a transeasonal looks.

Ever ahead of the crowd, Katie Holmes embraced the trending tone this week as she stepped out in New York wearing black trousers, kitten heel slingbacks and an oversized jacket in the earthy olive green shade. Whilst on this occasion she styled a lightweight and casual look that’s perfect for these early-spring days, when summer comes into sight I can see Holmes wearing the olive shade with her favourite denim shorts and skirts across the sunny season.

Sweeping through the S/S ’24 collections late last year, the olive green colour trend was spotted across the likes of Ami, Celine, JW Anderson, Jil Sander and many more. Styled frequently with similar khaki shades as well as with splashes of yellow and cool cream shades, the earthy neutral retained a polished edge across the board.

Whilst any millennial will tell you they still hold a soft spot for the utilitarian khaki jackets that dominated wardrobes across the early ’10s, this season shade is doing so much more. Across handbags, shoes, dresses and bags, every item you can image has been treated to the olive green touch for spring ’24.
