The Olive Green Sweater

Last week's weather gave us all quite a chill. We even turned on the heat. And today, the high is 75. Go figure.

But, I will say I wore my most recent sweater purchase multiple times last week. Maybe once more than I should have but I really love this sweater. It's perfectly oversized and roomy but warm and cozy. Is that not the purpose of a perfect sweater?

And the color? Neutral in my book and always a classic: olive green! Which is a welcome change in my overwhelmingly blue wardrobe. By the way, olive and denim look amazing together. No wonder the same outfit has been on repeat lately...

For some olive sweater inspo, I bring you these picks, all from j.crew because they are killing it in the sweater game this season! 


four fab / olive sweaters

1. This tunic style pullover had me at hello, beautiful. I love the oversized nature of it with the contrast of the slimming vertical line down the center. I can see this with a great pair of leather leggings and some killer booties. 

2. Ah, the cable knit turtleneck, one of my favorites! I live in them (for the purposes of fashion and function- it's freezing here most of the year!) This is the perfect chunky knit. And while the ivory is the classic, obvious choice- why not spice it up with the olive color way?! This, jeans, and some flats- very Olivia Palermo. Can't you envision her walking her dog in such an ensemble?

3. My favorite sweater. Like, ever! This dolman sleeved version is the one I've been wearing so much. The rib stitch detail is unassuming and so beautiful up close. It literally can be styled with anything from your boyfriend jeans to ecru or white jeans (which look super sharp, might I add!) 

4. A sweater with side zips? Have you ever seen such a thing? I hadn't until recently. I love combo of the brass hardware with the soft, flowing knit. And hey, if you begin to overheat, just unzip. How practical. Or let a pop of color out- very j.crew! 



Happy sweater weather- I trust anyone will look good in these four fab picks!
