Welcome to September’s Stylish Monday link up! This month we’re asking Is Olive the New Black? Well it’s certainly a very versatile colour, much more than you might think. When I bought this faux suede biker jacket I was surprised by how many people said they preferred it to a black one. It’s a great transitional piece because it’s not too bullky or heavy, but it keeps the Autumn chills at bay. I’ve worn it lots for work in place of a tailored jacket, and I think it still looks smart. Of course, it’s also great for pairing with jeans for a more casual look.
I’m a big fan of greens of all shades, but particularly emerald and olive (or khaki). Green is said to be a balancing colour, plus it suits redheads (natural or otherwise!). I’ve worn this jacket before on the blog with grey cropped trousers and a red top, but here I’ve opted for a more neutral palette, albeit with a few dashes of red. The trousers were a fantastic bargain – only £6 from the M&S outlet near to where I work. They’re really good quality and I love the high waist style. The red and cream bag adds some light to the otherwise muted colourway and ties in with the cream sandals.

Isobel wanted to show her green jacket too…I think I’ve got serious competition from my mini fashionista!
