COLOUR CRASH COURSE: TAKE A SIP!
MUCH LIKE JAMES BOND’S FAVOURITE DRINK, THE MARTINI OLIVE HUE IS SOPHISTICATED WITH A MYSTERIOUS ALLURE. HERE, WE PRESENT A DIVERSE MIX OF LOOKS TO PROVE JUST HOW VERSATILE THE COLOUR REALLY IS.
Whether you like it shaken or stirred, Martini Olive is the shade to add to your wardrobe this month.
There’s a reason why the military uses olive green for its uniform; it’s the colour of nature and easy to camouflage when you’re in the great outdoors. That’s why we say that Martini Olive is the perfect base to match with your B&W pieces or a funky range of brights in your wardrobe. It’s warm and earthy, yet really packs a punch in the trend department. Lately, we’ve seen some of our favourite fashionistas like Caroline Daur and Camille Charriere effortlessly rockin’ the rugged look in this hue, so get inspired and start hunting for bomber jackets, sock booties and asymmetrical skirts just like the one from Lemaire (bottom right). We love how easy it is to incorporate it in your outfits; try layering an olive deep V-neck blouse with striped paperbag pants and add a lightweight trench coat as a finishing touch. Tie the coat around your waist for an asymmetrical twist on warmer days.
