From jeans to sweaters to jackets, olive is the fashion world’s favorite new hue and a must have staple for your fall wardrobe!

Fall Trend 2016 ~ Cargo and Camo

In Style Magazine, August 2016 featured this layout of cargo jackets and how to style them!  So many options.  Their advice includes the following:  olive and white work well together, dress it up with a pencil skirt, red add-ons amp up a utilitarian ensemble, wear it as a shirt and roll up the sleeves and go.  How do you like to style your Army/Cargo Jacket?


Pairing cargo and camo is one option.  This camouflage tee features a rhinestone skull.  As you know, I love me some bling!  A v neck tee is generally very slimming.  This particular tee is loose fitting and doesn’t cling to my body, which is far more figure flattering.  A black cross body bag and camouflage flats both with metal studs and black rhinestones complete this look!


Striped tops paired with cargo jackets and cargo vests is another trendy look for fall!  Horizontal stripes do not add width, a fashion myth so don’t be afraid to give them a try!  Dare to be bold and mix and match patterns as Cindy did with her floral scarf, striped top and cargo jacket.  Cargo and camo can be styled casual and dressy.  Which do you prefer?


To say I’m obsessed with this fashion trend is an understatement! The stud details of the cargo jacket paired with the stud details on my olive sandals are a perfect match.  The plain black top paired with the cargo jacket give a slightly more dressed up look.


Camouflage pants, olive booties, black moto jacket, olive top…Love this combination!  The whole look is from New York and Company.  The pants are high waisted, which helps to hold in my mid-section.  The loose flowing, high low top cover all my mid-section flaws!  The booties are from DSW.  I truly feel like a fashion bad a$$ in this outfit!


Workwear in Olive:  Another example of mixing patterns:  stripes and color blocking – a fall trend.  Striped jacket and color blocked top from Carson’s.  Animal print top in olive (two fall trends in one top) from Charming Charlie’s.  Olive sandals from New York and Company.  Black pants from Old Navy.


Don’t forget about accessories such as scarves to add a punch of olive color and camo…olive nails and toes are also an option!

When all else fails…borrow a camo helmet like Lori!  But watch out for helmet head!  LOL
