Olive Green – Inner Strength & Endurance

Olive green is a mixture of green and yellow and it ranges from the bright, light chartreuse to a blacker dark olive.

While olive is associated with autumn leaves decaying and dying, there is a positive side. Olive represents the strength of character to endure tough times and become a better person after your trials. So the falling leaves and the bareness of winter lead to new growth in the spring. How apt! Those who wear a lot of olive are very caring people. Wearing muddy olive can hide your caring and strength.

Olive oil is a green energy food which promotes a sense of calm and a love of yourself and others.

Autumns like olive green and the deep and dark shades are good pants and skirt colours for them.  Purples and salmon pinks go well with olive shades. Add amber and gold when you need to be more optimistic.
