Menswear style enthusiast Akin Faminu shows how the modern guy can wear solid colours like olive green!
Akin Faminu shows how the modern guy can wear bold colours, making a case for olive green.
Decked up in menswear brand Bankole Thomas' pieces for the editorial, the menswear enthusiast and blogger shows how to incorporate the colour otherwise seen as feminine (strictly for the ladies) in the rather bold and stylish edit.
In recent times however, green has made its way into men's fashion as military inspired looks are done in solid green/olive green.
The style enthusiast however thinks the colour is back with a bang this season and to go all out green then olive green it is!
"If your tailoring rotation is looking kind of blue, green is the subtlest way to jazz things up. Olive green is a great alternative to the ubiquitous navys and greys. Because the tone is lesser-spotted, and a touch less formal, you can break afford to break some other rules, too.
Try with a Cuban collar or granddad collar shirt for something that oozes relaxed seasonal style.” That’s two trends ticked off without breaking a sweat" Akin Faminu revealed why he thinks the colour is making a major comeback this season.
Luxury brand Burberry Prorsum featured the hues in figure hugging suit designs with perfectly tailored 3-piece done in cotton as well as linen so it's a must try out look for the modern guy. (who he says will look best pairing the bold hue with burgundy or black pieces).
The best part about wearing olive green he revealed is once one finds a shade that complements one's complexion the colour looks great on EVERY skintone.
Guys, are you daring enough to wear olive green?
