Don't you just love it when your favorite things come together?
Military is back as a huge fall trend -these olive and khaki hues make all women who wear them look urban chic and ruggedly-feminine. But why stop there? Adding sequin, gold shimmer and shine takes this look from military-issue to khaki bombshell, in a look I like to call olive shimmer.

This look is so intriguing because of the combination of very masculine (military /aviators) and very feminine (sequin, gold) pieces. The result is a sultry head turning look.
Layer your shimmery pieces with olive & khaki, pair with aviators, or rugged ankle boots.
