Obviously a gorgeous color, which I'm also debating, but just wondering of those who have one - how does it work with your wardrobe and matching with various colors? As beautiful as I find some of the colors like Outremer or Cyclade or even Raisin, I really need something that I can carry often and can match with just about any outfit.

I'm not too careful about matching, BUT having said that ... I think Light Olive could go with a great many things (black, grey, brown, blue, tans, white). Like I said, I'm not too careful about matching, so maybe someone with more fashion sense can chime in. :smile:

I tend to like when my handbag "clashes" with my outfit. I love the unexpected pop of color, whatever color it may be. Just my two cents..:Partyhat:

I held a poll at another thread with light olive as one of the choices. Although I did not end up picking light olive, a lot of people said it is a very wearable color and quite neutral. It's my DH's favorite and he's a bit disappointed I didn't pick it.

I TOTALLY get that and love that look on others, but for me, not so much. That's why although I think colors like Outremer are GORGEOUS, they aren't the best for me - but I think Light Olive might be...maybe...we'll see...;)

I have a light olive day bag on order. For me it is the perfect shade as it will go with everything I own. I tend to go for browns but figure that this olive green can work for me as well as any brown. I am really looking forward to this bag.

I love this! So true, maybe I'm thinking about it the wrong way and should get the B Bag colors I want and then match my wardrobe to them ;)
I quote another post "Ask not what your Bbag can do for you, but what you can do for your Bbag" !! :graucho:

But on a more practical side, I'd see how much I LOOOOOVE the color. Deeply TDF love (which means you can wear clothes to match the bag) or just a huge admiration with no long term commitment.

I am waiting for an olive City to be delivered today. Since I haven't seen the color yet IRL, I'm not sure how neutral it is. I did have an 06 Origan City that was a light olive color, and I really wore it with more than I expected last summer (as I didn't think at the time that I was a green bag person, lol). But, if you think about it, what doesn't green go with in nature?

I don't have one but I'm absolutely loving the color. And I'm also not too careful about matching, if I like the color, I wear it!

I've already seen one in the boutique (City in Olive) and it's absolutely gorgeous 'cept that i'm wanting to buy a First so i've passed (sth tells me i'm going to regret that)!

Anyway, great colour. me thinks it will go well with many colours.
