How I wear Olive Green and new Sunglasses

olive green dress and new sunglasses

Olive green is, like black, a very cool and sexy color in my head. I always love to wear olive green in summer as it looks gorgeous on a tinted skin. Well, you can hardly say my skin is already tinted by some sun, but I am wearing the color anyway. And my new sunglasses while there is no sun at all, lol!

*Btw, have you already send us your Style Steal!

New Sunglassesolive green dress with rust cardigan

*I received the beautiful sunglasses from MessyWeekend  I chose these tortoise ones because I have always loved that. And very coincidentally, I had just told Gerben a few weeks ago that I needed new sunglasses. My old turtoise ones are full of scratches and when I am reading in the sun it is very annoying. So the invite to collaborate came just in time.What a lucky girl I am!

A while ago I went with a girlfriend to shop for her birthday outfit. She turned 50 at the end of December and threw a party, so I said to her that it was a good excuse to buy a new outfit. Not that we ever need a excuse….So we went shopping and coincidentally, yes really, I saw something beautiful for myself. I’ve always loved olive green. Can be combined with all other colors. But I think it is best to combine it with brown or other earth tones.

How I styled this olive green dresstortoise sunglasses

I have styled olive green before with pink. But mostly I will wear it with brown or, like I said, earth tones. The cardigan might look a bit red but it is more a rust. I was doubting if I would wear these ankle boots under the dress but I decided to wear the longer boots. I always like to wear a shirtdress with a belt to accentuate the waist line. And often these dresses come with a strap in the color of the dress which I think is a bit dull.

The turtoise print of the sunnies come back in my necklace! Matchy matchy! Also wearing two small golden bracelets with a brown beaded one. And some small earrings for a change. Because I already wear a necklace, I don’t like to wear statement earrings with it. I wore this outfit when we went to my sisters last Saturday. We had delicious Indonesian food! Mmmm.

    I love olive green. It’s just not a very favourable colour for me. It definitely is for you and I love how you have styled it with that rusty red and the big brown belt and beautiful boots. I am sure you will wear this combination a lot. It’s stylish, comfortable and an outfit that will be apt for many occasions. Good buy and gorgeous styling. Love, Lieske

    I love anything in olive. In the summer I like to pair it with white! I love your belt, it makes a pretty statement and is a nice way to accentuate the waist. Need to pull out my belts and find new ways to wear them.

    Your new olive dress is gorgeous, Nancy, and it suits you so well. I love how you’ve styled it with the tan belt and boots, and the pinkish red cardigan on top. I also love your new sunnies. I would have gone for tortoise shell too. It’s such a classic! xxx

    Very stylish outfit Nancy, the colour combination is lovely. I’m a big fan of olive green too, I think it’s as versatile as black but more flattering on some skin tones. I try to avoid wearing too much black now. Thanks for linking up!

    Love this olive shirtdress, Nancy. My kind of dress, for sure! I like how you styled it with the cognac boots and belt and the red sweater is the perfect topper!

    Olive is a such a great neutral – I think your belt looks great on the dress and the color of the cardigan brightens it up so much!

    Thanks for sharing your great look with my readers at the Top of the World Style linkup party. Yes, you are right. Olive is as great as black when it comes to neutrals. Moreover, it looks less harsh on our skin, i.e. it doesn’t highlight wrinkles. It’s totally underused despite it’s such a cool color. Love your outfit and color combination. I so would wear that look too. So posh casual.

    Love this unique color combo. This outfit is so well put together. The elements of line and texture are superb! Olive is a great neutral I’ve been incorporating more into my closet over the last couple of years.

    Nancy, what a gorgeous color combination! I love the deep rust sweater with the olive green and those boots are absolutely amazing! The obi belt is perfect to accentuate the waist of the dress, too. And your new sunglasses are wonderful, too! Thanks for linking up, my friend. I am back from vacation and trying to catch up on everything now!
