Call it Chartreuse or Matcha, this yellowish green colour dubbed “olive oil green” is trending like madness, especially in velvet for December 2023. When it comes to diving headfirst into all the latest fall trends it feels a lot like hitting a fashion reset button, especially when designers deliver exciting runway shows. This year’s fall/winter collections were full of bold colours, statement silhouettes, and updated basics you can mix and match in endless fresh fall ‘fit combos.

While there is a brand-new piece worth splurging on, brands like Tods, Luisa Spagnoli, went so far and beyond that I’m worried for my bank account. Fall’s 2023 biggest fashion trends were luxe enough to make my stylish mouth water. Don’t ask me to pick my favourite look. It simply can’t be done. 

What I will tell you is along with coveted winter pieces; this season’s runway shows features plenty of clothing you already own. While many designers focused on layering, seasonal go-to’s like cardigans and blazers, there were plenty of looks that turned heads. And it wasn’t just because of the craftsmanship down the runway.

Rock a velvet jacket

If you want to introduce this trending colour, without making a massive commitment. My advice to you is start with something small and or basic. This way you don’t feel pressure to nail this trending colour right the first time around. An olive-green coloured jacket can go from a casual day look to a dressier night out outfit. And you can add a pop of colour with the most basic pieces to accompany the green jacket. 


A classic dress with a colourful twist


A classic dress is an essential in every woman’s wardrobe. Why not elevate that classic dress by wearing one in an olive-green colour. It is a universal colour, believe it or not. And can be flattering on so many skin tones. And it gives a personality through your classic dressy silhouette.

Don’t be intimated add an accessory



If the idea of wearing this olive-green trending hue scares the bae Jesus out of you, then start with something less overbearing, like a green accessory. You can wear an all-black outfit and have that olive-green handbag as a colour accent. And you can look modern and sleek while doing so. Make this trending colour your friend and play around with many options. You can wear green earrings, jewellery, and even a handbag to dip your toes into this trending pool without making a full-on commitment. 

If the Shoe fits wear it

This kind of goes in the same line as trying an olive-green accessory, so you can get a feel of the trending colour without feeling obligated to commit. I think a fun green shoe would defiantly set an outfit off. And make you look just so fresh and modern.


Remix the basic jumper with a colour

The jumper has been done so many times. And changed in style, length, and even fabric. But who ever thought to remix the jumper into an olive-green tone? It is genius. You take this shocking yellowish-green chartreuse looking tone and make it work for a basic jumper, that you can wear with your favourite jeans, snappy trousers, or that skirt that is calling your name. 


No matter how you wear this olive-green trend, always make it your own and to fit a personal style that reflects who you are. 


How do you like this olive-green colour that’s trending?
