STYLE STORY: MILITARY CHIC


Army green is a color that I've avoided for too long. It's surprisingly versatile and can be casual and chic.

I decided to pair it with black and white stripes. But since I feel that pairing is overdone, I decided to change it up by adding a bright coral. Plus, to add some extra fun, there's print mixing involved!

What's your favorite way to wear army green?

    1. Thanks lady! It really does!! I've styled the color on other people, but never for myself haha :) I always thought everyone else pulled the color off better than me. (And still do)
      Hope you have a great week, Alice! xo

  4. I love the coral with the khaki pants! :) I used to have a pair of pants like this but I donated them a while back as the fit wasn't ideal. I figured I'd find a great replacement pair, but I haven't yet! it was a nice neutral to have in my wardrobe.

  7. i don't suit army green so I would wear it from the waist down like you have here. Love the flattering peplum top - the colours and pattern are such fun and I love how you've teamed it with a stripe jacket. One of my favourite looks!

  8. Love, love, love this combo! That blouse is adorable and the perfect pop for the outfit. I love army green and pair it with black a lot. I don't know why, but I'll be exploring some new combos now. Thank you!
