Even if you’re a major color enthusiast, there’s no denying that—come winter—you often find yourself instinctively filling your closet with neutrals. While you can never go wrong with minimal shades of black, navy and gray, gloomy days often call for something a little bolder.

That’s why we’re all about army green as a perfect compromise—and as the next installment in our ROYGBIV Report series (named after the handy acronym for the sequence of hues in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) in which we highlight fabulous finds in one chic shade. Army green—also called olive and military—is just basic enough to be versatile but also interesting enough to add some spark to an otherwise monotonous ensemble.

From Burberry‘s utilitarian jackets, to Victoria Beckham‘s sleek cocktail dresses, the shade made an undeniable mark on the season’s collections, and now it’s time for it to make its way into your wardrobe.

Here, we’ve compiled 30 army green pieces to suit every taste and price point, so browse through the gallery and shop away!
