Because olive green is the “it color” this season
New York Fashion Week is right around the corner and our KCM staff noticed that the latest fashion palettes can’t get enough of the color olive and all it’s green hues. We’re recommending you up your style with this season’s “it color.” From the trending Crocs olive green classic clog to 2020’s Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Earth,” the color olive is having a moment. Try one of these KCM-recommended olive green products to add some style to your daily routine.
#1 Baggu Merch Tote
Baggu’s Merch Tote aims to be your favorite concert or record store merch tote but in one, solid clean color. It also, of course, comes in a light olive, caper color that we can’t wait to get our hands on. If you don’t know about Baggu, here’s your introduction: Their goal was to create the perfect functional and reusable tote bag in the shape of a plastic shopping bag, at a reasonable and affordable price — the result was the Standard Baggu. They’ve expanded to even more styles for every activity. The Merch Tote is made from lightweight recycled cotton canvas, and perfect for the farmer’s market or a quick errand. It’s the ideal minimalist, practical everyday bag.
#2 Athleta Olive Whisper Featherless Jacket
This is the puffer jacket Clare’s KCM wish she had bought at the beginning of the fall and winter season. But the bright side is now it’s on sale! This has to be one of Athleta’s best cold weather essentials. The Whisper Featherless Jacket in Shadow Olive — a softened, muted olive — is made from recycled nylon and thinsulate, a down alternative, that keeps you warm and dry without the bulk. The padded quilted look elevates the jacket but is still casual enough to wear for a quick walk outside or to the park. This is one of those items you’ll regret not buying.
#3 Gap Vintage Soft Mockneck Sweatshirt
We love a good work-from-home sweatshirt, especially when they’re super soft and fit great. This vintage mockneck sweatshirt from Gap pairs perfectly with your hours long Zoom calls or a warm, cozy layer underneath your outerwear. We love the olive green as a winter, fall, and spring neutral. It easily transitions to every season! If you’re looking for a matching olive set for your man, or maybe just want a gender neutral look, we’re also eyeing this olive classic hoodie and olive classic joggers from Topman.
#4 Olive Winter Accessories
We really want olive all over. A standout winter accessory is this unisex olive waffle knit beanie from Blenders Eyewear. It’s a pop of color with your standard winter getup, and will keep you warm all winter long. We also found this great olive fleece neck gaiter from Brixton, to wear around your neck or over your mouth for an extra layer of warmth, whether your keeping comfortable on a wintery walk or on the ski slopes. And since you’re spending extra hours outdoors this winter, these knit olive cashmere texting gloves are a must buy.
#5 Veja Olive White V-12 B-Mesh Low-Top Sneakers
Upgrade your sneaker game with this olive pair from VEJA. If you haven’t heard of this sneaker brand, listen up. VEJA was founded in 2005 with the mission to reinvent the way sneakers were made. These kicks are environmentally friendly, made with raw materials sourced from organic farming and ecological agriculture, without chemicals or polluting processes. Feel good about what’s on your feet — and look stylish while you’re at it.
#6 Hunter Chelsea Rain Boots
We’ve done it. We’ve found the perfect rain boot. This Chelsea-cut version of Hunter’s Original rubber boot is a style-savvy companion on drizzly days. You can also buy this warm boot liner to keep your toes nice and cozy when it’s cold and wet. These boots come in six colors, including a dark olive that will go with any outfit.
#7 Athleta Elation Tight
If you’re like us and haven’t worn jeans in almost a year, try these Athleta leggings. They’re perfect for both indoor and outdoor yoga practice — and life off the mat. Each pair is made from a buttery soft Powervita fabric and compression that feels like a gentle hug. (Because who couldn’t use a hug right now?) These leggings come in two colors, but you already know our eyes are on the Arbor Olive pair.
#8 Apple Watch Sport Band, Cyprus Green
Calling all Apple Watch lovers. This cyprus green Apple Watch band was made for the person looking to close their exercise rings… before noon. The custom high-performance material is durable, smooth and surprisingly soft against the wrist. This strap comes in both the 40mm and the 44mm size. If you’ve had enough of olive, try the soft Northern Blue shade.
#9 Outdoor Voices Hudson 4” Skort
We know what you’re thinking: “A skort? Really?” Trust us. Outdoor Voices medium coverage skort is our go-to item when the seasons start to change. It’s made with a lightweight quick-drying recycled polyester fabric and comes in three colors — black, navy and evergreen. This skort can take you from the gym to running errands around town. It’s comfortable, flattering and even features a hidden pocket for your phone. Looking for something a little more sporty? Try Outdoor Voices famous Exercise Dress.
#10 Patagonia Women’s Raven Rocks Coat
KCM’s Eliza has been on the hunt for the perfect winter coat. She was tired of looking like she was wearing a sleeping bag all of winter and decided to find something with a little edge to it. This Patagonia puffer is just that. It’s made with 100% recycled down (duck and goose down reclaimed from down products) and enclosed in a 100% recycled polyester face fabric. Eliza went with the Basin Green look, but it comes in Basin Red and Black. The best part? It’s on sale.
