Here are the exact items that I wore from my wardrobe to create the outfit:
I combined an olive midi sweater dress with a roomy olive parka, which I kept open and oversized. The olives are different but work together. I finished off the look with sheer black hosiery, tailored cream booties that pick up the cream in my hair and the faux fur collar, citron bag, and playful pom-pom. The cream accents and pop of citron add a crispness to the outfit, which feels more my style.
It isn’t essential to add cream or a pop of colour to the palette. Keep it earthy and warm if that’s more your thing. There are many ways to combine the olives. Use patterns, solids, pattern mix, and throw in some metallic. Any metal is fab. Try NOT to accent the outfit with black.
The ensemble on the far left approximates my own outfit by pairing an olive dress and topper. The other two outfits combine tonal olive separates with an olive pattern. The patterns can be introduced through the scarf, shoes, skirt or top. Finish off the outfit with neutral footwear, a bit of jewellery, watch and eyewear as desired.
Of course, this isn’t going to work if you don’t like or wear olive. But if you do, go tonal and see what happens.
