Urban Utilitarian

Fashion is indeed fickle. While Pantone is declaring that Greenery is the color of 2017, fashion runways are declaring Pink will be huge this year. (?!?!) Yeah, greenery, try harder. Lol. 

But if there's one kind of green I can definitely get used to (hey, it's St. Patrick's day anyway ☘️) it would have to be this - army/ military or olive green. This hue was big in last year's spring collection and I'd say it wouldn't hurt continuing the trend this year, no? Military green adds an interesting tone (not to mention a tough vibe) to black basics without making too much of a statement as proven in the outfits below. Agree?

If you're new to army green, you can try it with an all black ensemble like below with tough accessories. ;)
Top: Zara; Skirt: Warehouse; Shoes: Mango; Sunnies: Here; Jacket: Here

Dress: Topshop; Jacket: Here; Shoes: Zalora; Sunnies: Here

This look below is like a major throwback to military training days in high school, no? 
Jacket: Topshop; Suit: H&M; Shoes: Mango; Sunnies: Here; Jacket: Here

I especially love this waistcoat from Zaful in army green
