An olive green jacket or otherwise known as military or army green jacket has been a big part of my wardrobe for years.  It can play up a color or act as a nuetral.  I currently have three different styles in my closet and wanted to show you six different ways to wear one.

With Pink & Stripes

With Purple & Denim

With Lace & Ombré

Adding texture and pattern to this olive hooded mixed textile jacket provide for a truly eclectic look.  The olive takes on a nuetral status here.

With Black & White + Denim

Taking an olive jacket to the office is perfect when paired with lady like pieces such as a polka dot midi skirt and floral tie blouse.

With Black & White + Coral

Yet another look with black & white only this time with a pinch of coral through this watercolor effect scarf.

As you can tell, the olive jacket is a staple in my closet that goes with so many things and outfits.  From dressy to casual, this work horse is in my wardrobe to stay!

  1. Janeane, I don’t have a true military jacket, but I do have a sweatshirt weight olive “jacket” that I wear on occasion. I’ve never really thought of pairing it with some of the things you did here, but I will be rethinking that now that I’ve seen how you put these outfits together. They are all cute and I especially like the olive with the lace top and ombre skirt as well as the outfit with the black, white and floral. Great looks! Thanks for posting. – Amy
