If there is one thing that might compete with my giant denim collection, it’s army green outerwear. I started growing my collection a couple years ago with a vintage camo jacket and it has since grown to various utility jackets, trenchs, blazers and more. This army green color is extremely versatile, and if you don’t already own something in this color, I suggest you do! They can be dressed up for a party look with a lace and sequin top, or dressed down with a graphic tee and wide leg trousers. Let’s see 5 different ways I styled my army green outerwear pieces for fall!
1. The Office Green
This is a lightweight trench coat that I belted with a vintage beaded belt and wore as a dress! I unzipped the hood attachment and left the zipper a little undone for a more blouse-y appeal. I paired the ensemble with platforms and my structured tote; if you don’t have a trench coat like this, you can use a kimono, vest or shirtdress for the same feel. This outfit comes across as super tailored and chic, but it literally took less than two minutes to get ready. It’s perfect for those rushed mornings!

2. The Date-Night Green
I paired this green suede mini with a leopard print utility jacket. The monochromatic look makes the utility look more elevated and date night ready! I kept the accessories to metallics and blush tones for a nice feminine touch.

3. The Girls-Night-Out Green
You’ve seen me wear this floral slip on WIW before, but I absolutely loved the idea of pairing it with the camo jacket! I added a blush pink floral clutch, green heels and a corset belt to cinch the dress at my waist. I think this look is fun, flirty and the perfect amount of “cool-girl”

4. The Casual Weekend Green
Forego the jeans for this look and pair your utility jacket with a graphic tee, wide leg trousers and sneakers. It’s extremely comfy and if the layers are too much, just tie the jacket around your waist!

5. The Party Green
Ok hands down, this is my favorite look! I layered a sheet sequin top under a sleeveless trench and it makes for the perfect party look! I added shimmery statement earrings, a vintage clutch and sock heels.
