Have you tried olive & purple yet?

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with fun new color combinations is a great way to liven up your wardrobe. In this series, we feature unique and unexpected color combinations, then give you stylish outfit ideas so you can try out these color combos yourself.

Outfit #1

An anorak is such a fantastic fall staple and an easy way to jazz up a standard olive-hued one is by pairing it with a feminine purple blouse. Distressed boyfriend jeans keep things casual, while lace-up ankle booties are a trendy touch. Throw on a knit beanie and accessorize with a long pendant necklace to complete the ensemble.

Outfit #2

This next look is both laid-back and fashion-forward. Start with a cozy olive-toned frock, then pair it with some lacy tights in a muted purple shade. Add another dose of purple with a structured satchel. As far as footwear goes, classic riding boots continue the casual vibe. Lastly, accessorize with a few edgy stacked rings.

Outfit #3

If you're a bit wary about trying out this color combo, this outfit is a good way to ease into it. For the base of the outfit, wear a comfy cable knit sweater with some olive skinny jeans. Pointy-toe flats are a stylish addition to this campus-worthy ensemble, while vintage-esque drop earrings add a dose of glam. Finally, incorporate the purple into this look by wrapping a floral print scarf around your neck.

Outfit #4

On the other hand, if you're no stranger to rocking bold ensembles, this final look is for you! Pairing an olive green long-sleeved top with a bright purple skirt is a surefire way to make a statement this fall. To tone down the outfit a bit, add a pair of sheer black tights, as well as some menswear-inspired brogues. A jeweled necklace adds just the right amount of sparkle, while a dark purple nail polish adds the finishing touch.
