Khaki and similar shades like taupe and camel have become associated with bland office wear and corporate banality, and for good reason! These shades tend to wash most people and fade into the background – which is why we suggest you wear an alternative. Like the olive trend for instance.
This flattering but neutral shade of green works in nearly any situation and with almost any color that khaki would, but looks more creative and interesting. Here are some of our favorite olive options.
Slim Cut Cropped Pants
Skip the basic denim and go with olive green instead. We love these cargo pants from Blank Denim.

Classic white tees most certainly have their place, but they aren’t as interesting as an olive tank. Especially one that’s perfectly draped with special details, like this one by POL.
There’s no better way to do than the military look than with an olive tailored jacket like this one from Nic and Zoe.
Barbour rain jackets are classics in general, and an olive version is a bit more interesting than basic black or khaki.
Skip the beige and do this summer classic in olive. These Marc Fisher open toe espadrilles are just about perfect.
We want to wear this Lush olive tunic with white jeans all summer long.
Whether you wear them now or save them for fall, olive ankle boots like these from Lucky might be the unexpected MVP of your closet.
What are your thoughts on olive versus khaki?
