Complementary colors compliment each other for a reason, but I've never known how to mix red and green without looking like Christmas. With this outfit, I've figured it out by chance—the Banana jacket and Rebecca Minkoff bag (thanks to SNOBSWAP! You can read more about them here.) are two of the newest additions to my closet, and I wondered if I could pair them together. So I found that the key is not to use the traditional color wheel red and green that = Christmas. The olive green jacket and red bag with just a hit of orange play off each other nicely, without making it look like I just really miss the holidays.
