Shop The Palette :: Bright Red + Deep Olive

Whenever a new fashion season comes along, I try to go through all the shows for trends that really stand out to me - including color. I remember saving this one from the Karen Walker FW13 show purely for that reason - the combination of a deep olive green and bright bright red - offset by neutrals of course.

This summer I incorporated this combo more than a few times with my thin red cotton pants and a lightweight olive green linen tee - and attempted to look half as adorable in a head scarf too - but now that fall is here, I'm ready to keep it going in a whole different way...

I absolutely loved this lookย captured by Vanessa Jackman at last year's fashion week, and vowed I'd bring it back onto the blog come fall. So here we are, and here I am - lusting for a bright red hat and repurposing that scarf as a belt! Naturally, I pulled together some of my favorite picks in this palette...

To me, the key to this color combo is to keep it mainly to accessories, and definitely offset the red-green combo with khaki (for a very safari-inspired style) or shades of grey (for a bit more chic in the city).
