Wearing a green vest with your basic pair of green pants can give you a smart look anything but basic. Olive green pants with a green vest really is a chic way to layered if the weather becomes cold like in the mid-60 degree days. There is nothing worse than wearing the same color of pants in the snow to wear underneath a light jacket, so you can save yourself the hassle by putting on a vest. There are many different styles and colors of vests available to fit your personal tastes.
If you are going to be outside a lot in these types of conditions, or you work in an office where it snows or has a really cold temperature day, a good idea would be to wear a lightweight vest that you can layer over your pants. These olive green pants are lightweight and usually have some sort of lining to help keep the wind out of your clothing. They also are usually breathable which helps your skin stay nice and fresh longer, which is crucial to remaining comfortable and not freezing. I have worn these types of vests in both the snow and rain and they hold up great.
Most people who are looking for a smart casual outfit are looking for something that is easy to mix and match. These green, olive, or brown shirts are perfect for this type of look because they can be worn with so many different, other items from leggings, cardigans, jackets, or even over a dress. One of the best things about this wardrobe is that it is casual yet sophisticated at the same time. You don’t want to wear the same outfit two days in a row because it will get old fast. A great tip to keep in mind is to wear your top with the vest, and then switch back to your shirt or blouse for a night out on the town.
Another way to switch up your outfit is to wear your olive green pants paired with a white t-shirt. This works well with everything from a pair of khakis to a tank top. It is also comfortable because you can move around freely in it without anyone touching your waist area. If you are wearing a heavier jacket, you can still wear the white t-shirt because it will keep the heaviness at bay. Pair the outfit with a nice pair of white linen pants, a dark chino sweater, or a cardigan and you are all set for some seriously stylish fashion at any time.
The key to this outfit is to use a bit of texture in your clothing. Instead of just choosing olive green pants in solid colors, you should make your green shirt the focal point of your ensemble. For example, if you are wearing a white shirt with a pair of khakis and stilettos, you can put a cropped top over your olive green pants. This can easily be done while still maintaining a very open and free flowing look. Pair a bold printed shirt with a pair of off the rack jeans and you have instant comfort and style.
You can also mix and match your top and pants in a way that gives you the freedom to choose what you want to wear. For example, if you have been invited to go to a party with a friend who both love skinny jeans, you can wear their skinny jeans over a nice, long-sleeved olive green pants that match a beautiful, bright t-shirt. You can then wear your crop top with your khakis. The overall effect looks very casual and sweet.
For another really great look, consider pairing your green pants with an old-fashioned denim jacket. For a vintage look, pair your green pants with an old worn out denim jacket that is in one of those bright, floral prints. This look is perfect for a wedding or prom, but works just as well for any informal event. Pairing your pants with an old denim jacket also allows you to experiment with different necklines. There are lots of necklines available for today’s generation of jeans. You can try a V-neck, an empire waist, a turtle neck, or even a knot neckline to create a really unique outfit.
Green pants are not only comfortable; they are also sophisticated and stylish. A great way to incorporate them into your wardrobe is to wear them with an elegant, neutral-colored blazer. Blazers in rich burgundy, chocolate, or eggshell tones complement the green color of most pants, especially if they are worn with olive pants. Choose an elaborate blazer that includes some patterned detailing and intricate brocade fabric to pull off the look of your new pants. A well-chosen blazer will help to accent your green pants, which you can wear with an Oxford shirt, a plain t-shirt, or even with a pair of gladiator sandals for a classically fashion forward look.
