Outfit Post - Statement Greens

Olive shirt

Statement knit

I'm really enjoying all the shades of olive green around at the moment so I was pretty chuffed when I bagged two green trends with out even trying at my local charity shop last weekend. The first is this beautiful pure wool olive green italian shirt, I love the fact it is somewhere between a trench coat and a big shirt and does up just at the collar which creates a dramatic neckline. I've gone a little rock chic wearing it with a pair of M&S leopard jeans I dyed green, black patent Kirk Geiger cone heels, a utility belt, big Topshop earrings and stacked up some Jon Richard sparkly crystal bracelets in red, black and purple that I was kindly gifted.

For my second helping of greens it had to be this big statement knit, jade, khaki and pale mint, is about as green as it gets, I was so thrilled with this find! Bold paisley prints jostle with what I call lego print crosses and diamonds. I loved the slouchy shoulder line and the almost bubble lower half which fits snuggly round my bum and really accentuates my curves when it's belted tightly. Beryl wears it belted with my gold acrorn belt,green leopard skinny jeans as above, a pair of Asos toeless kahki cowboy boots and my Accessorize black peaked cap. Have you tried out olive or a shade of green yet? What colours did you wear it with?
