I am a neutral-loving babe when it comes to my color-palette choices for clothing. I love all shades of tan, brown, black and white — and most often in the fall and winter months, I wear black on black on black.
But this year is different.
This year, I’m adding grass green to my fall wardrobe. What I love about this color for fall is that it pairs so well with all the neutral tones I already adore. It’s a surprisingly versatile color to wear with all the neutrals and a select few colors I have in my closets.
Fall Has A New Color: A Grass Green Trenchcoat + 4 Ways To Wear it
I was inspired by my wish lists and purchases from this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — the theme of green kept popping up for my top choices of jackets, tops and accessories. In particular, I fell in LOVE with this gorgeous grass-green trenchcoat from Halogen. I loved it when I first saw it online, and the same was true when I had the opportunity to try it on in-store.
What I love about this trenchcoat is that it’s such a gorgeous color, has a beautiful silky green lining, and because it’s made of synthetic materials, it works so well for anyone who, like me, is allergic to wool and cashmere. It has a super-soft feel, and the ultra-wide and deep pockets will store everything you need for a quick run to the grocery store.
Outfit 1: Upgrade Your Neutral Monochromatic Look
OK, hear me out. This monochromatic look feels like a fresh take on the iconic on-the-model runway looks I have seen all over Pinterest for the past year. But instead of the neutral monochromatic look, this grass-and-forest-green combo is reviving it! I am obsessed with the all-green-on-green moment and opted to add just a hint of blue with my sneaker choice.
This outfit is beyond cozy, and the Nasty Gal sweat set I’m wearing is that perfect oversized fit, which is such a challenge to find for plus-size babes. I am obsessed with this streetwear look and can’t wait to rock it when it’s no longer 90-plus degrees outside!
Outfit 2: Spice Up An All-Black Look
While this black-on-black ensemble appears hella chic, and it is, it actually feels a whole lot like pajamas. Both the AllSaints top and the Le Ore Rimini pants I’m wearing are elevated loungewear pieces that can fool anyone into thinking you are super-put-together. For me, the icing on the cake is that the coat just pulls everything together into one gorgeous-looking outfit!
Catch a better glimpse of these Rimini pants above! The slit at the ankle is quite sexy, and I love that you can peep more of my mules.
Outfit 3: Playing With Primary Colors
Remember when I said I love neutrals?! Well, that may have just changed because I am OBSESSED with this outfit! It’s a total play on primary colors, and I have my bases covered with yellow trousers, a blue top and a red lip to complete the look. These colors all work so well together because they fall more into the jewel-tone category rather than the true primary color palette. If I worked in the office, I would 100% wear this to work. It’s such a fun outfit combo and makes me think I need to start playing with color more often!
The exact trousers I’m wearing are a part of a satin set that I bought a long while ago from Good American. I absolutely love the fit of the set, but it’s unfortunately very sold out, so I have rounded up a few more great yellow trouser options for both straight- and plus-size babes!
Outfit 4: Baggy Jeans, Cropped Hoodies & Trenchcoats = My New Fall Uniform
This fit is the most basic of them all, and it’s giving Clean Girl Aesthetic. My Good ’90s baggy jeans are still some of my most-worn, and I especially love to wear them in the cooler seasons. This entire look is such a vibe, and I love how it all just works! It feels like a great fall uniform for those weekend errands and, my favorite, a trip to Whole Foods!
This green trenchcoat is seriously so good, and I love that it goes with just about everything in my closet! Casual looks, fancy looks, elevated athleisure — it’s just so good. I am sure you will catch me wearing it on the ‘Gram!
