The very masculine and versatile shade of military green has made a stylish comeback this season to secure a spot among the top colour trends for men right now. Today we show you five ways to incorporate this seasonally-appropriate colour in your clothes:
Take a break from the blacks, blues, and greys with this hot men’s colour trend of the season. The beauty of the dark green suit is that it works for both dressed-up and dressed-down looks. A two-piece in this colour goes equally well with your regular white shirt-blue tie combo and your more flamboyant reds, maroons and oranges. Whether you’re dressing for work or for a wedding, military green lends a sophisticated edge to any look. Since the shade is warm and more appropriate for the cold weather, opt for a heavy fabric like tweed, herringbone, flannel, or wool to bring out the true essence of this rich hue.
If you find a whole suit too much to handle, then make a chic addition to your wardrobe with a military green blazer. Wear it with denims, trousers, or chinos, but your autumn-winter collection would be incomplete without a blazer in this elegant shade. When picking blazers in military green, look for textured items like a flecked tailored blazer or a wool and cashmere blazer. This season, rock separates like never before with the leading fall-winter colour trend.
Men have been playing it safe with grey, blue, or black trousers for too long. Time for a stylish change in the form of rich green legwear. If you’re fond of your classic khaki pair, then this one should appeal to you. Military green trousers are striking and sophisticated, perfect for an understated look. Pair dark green satin chinos with a chambray print shirt for a semi-formal attire, or with tailored shirt and a dark blue jacket for a more formal look. The earthy tones go well together to impart a perfect finish to your ensemble.
Be it turtle-neck, V-neck, or round neck, with the cold season inching closer, it’s time for your knitwear to spring into action. And when we’re talking knitwear, can the good old jumper be far behind? This menswear classic re-invents itself every year, given its vintage charm and debonair feel. Make a retro, collegiate statement with the shirt under a military green, V-neck pullover, or go for a roll-neck with tailored pants teamed with leather brogues. Heavy fabrics bring out the colour more beautifully, so choose a jumper in a chunky knit to channel the timeless look more effortlessly.
Originally created for the US Air Force and popularized by movies like Top Gun, the bomber jacket’s timeless appeal makes it an autumn-winter favourite. While there are plenty of dark bomber jackets to be seen, military green makes for a standout colour option. Go for leather inserts and quilted detailing for the extra dash of panache. Team a green bomber jacket with a pair of pleated pants, or a V-neck sweater with a classic white shirt and a tie, or a pair of trousers in a contrast hue for a louder winter style statement.
As summer fades, and autumn knocks on the door, get set to embrace the nip in the air with the best colour trends for men. Add a touch of military green to your wardrobe and easily stand out in a sea of greys and blues this season.
