Branch Out to Olive

Olive shorts look best with any neutral color—think black, navy, beige and gray—paired with a light patterned top, recommends Stylist Brittany M.

Elevated. Versatile. Fun. Yep, olive has stepped up as a color essential. If you’re new to wearing shorts with some pop, we suggest easing into it with this shade of green. It stands out, but it’s not in-your-face bold. It’s super cool and casual, but has the power to quickly turn an outfit spiffy.
