Hunter Green in the Summer
I’m not sure why, but I usually associate hunter green with Fall clothing, and maybe even Winter. Certainly not for when it’s hot out. But one thing I’ve noticed is that it’s actually a really great year round color (and I’m clearly not the only one).
Here I’ve put together a pretty casual summery look, anchored by some cut off white denim and Venetian loafers. A softly constructed light blue striped shirt that rumples in the heat of a summer day is a perfect complement for the half-lined 3 patch pocket jacket. A knit or grenadine tie would be perfect, but for those of us of lesser means The Tie Bar’s ‘grenafaux’ gets the job done at $15.
