What I Wore: Olive

Nubby Twiglet | What I Wore: Olive

To me, there’s nothing better than Fall fashion. Maybe it’s because the change of seasons reminds me of all those years of going back to school (I didn’t officially graduate from college until I was 27). Chunky, cozy knits and wool blends are great, as are all those very Fall (and Winter-centric) hues like olive, oxblood, pumpkin, mustard and navy.

Back in the late 90s in high school, I desperately wanted a bomber jacket but all the styles I found at my local army surplus store were just too baggy for my frame. I’m glad the trend has had a recent resurgence — this Zara version is perfectly cropped and basic enough to move from dressier looks to jeans. I’ve been wearing it everywhere lately, including this look to the Reed College campus.

These are some of my favorite olive-hued items right now:

1. F21 waffle-knit sweater, 2. F21 utility jacket, 3. Zara parka, 4. Zara bomber jacket, 5. Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses and 6. F21 knit beanie.

I wore: Zara bomber jacket, Banana Republic wool wrap skirt (very old), H&M socks and Dries van Noten wedges (2008).

Have a great Monday!
