Khaki green is a new neutral pairing color this season. From maxi dress to jackets to cargo pants, this color is trending in all major departments and why shouldn’t it be? when it blends beautifully with the fresh blooms of spring.

For some reason whenever I think of khaki/army green, I think of a chill out laid back look with a basic tee and sneakers but you can actually (obvisiouly) pair them in multiple ways by dressing up with a blazer or by making a statement with bold colors or by going all bohemian with chunky acessories. Whatever you are feeling in mood for or whatever you style is, you can incorporate khaki green into your style. I am sharing 6 looks today that are classy, laid back, chic and colorful. I hope you find some motivation to opt for some olive this season 🙂

Khaki/army green has a unisex and edgy vibe to it. I tried to add feminine touch to all this outfits by picking pieces with feminine details or pairing them with chic colors and accessories.

Color Combinations– Khaki green is a neutral color hence it blends pretty well with most colors. Here are some combinations you can try

  • Work–  Stick with warm and neutral hues for work and business like black, white, grey, oatmeal, Leopard print, navy, olive and pink
  • Casual– For Casual you can either go with neutral or Pastel colors like sky blue, emerald green, denim blue, ruby, lavender, came print and pink
  • Statement–  For bold and colorful outfits go with orange/ coral, red, yellow, purple, sapphire blue, and fluorescent green

 

1. Classy and Casual- Pair your army green pants with chambray shirt or denim jacket

The rolled hem chinos, untuck tee and oversized denim jacket makes this look a little more laid back. The pop of yellow and oxfords shoes adds a feminine vibe.

I recently bought this long denim jacket for an amazing price ($24). I love how versatile it is. I will be sharing more chic outfits with it soon.

5. Casual Boho- Pair olive pants with flowy chic blouse or dress

These olive wide leg pant are stylish version of pj’s, they are the most comfiest thing in the world. Plus the color goes pretty well with anything.

I kept the look casual by not tucking in the shirt as I wanted a breezy and boho look but for a more structured look you can tuck in the blouse and add a waist belt.

    I like to keep my army green on the bottoms too. I love the color, but sadly, it’s not flattering with my complexion, so when I indulge, it’s a green on bottom, statement color on top. I love it paired with a statement color.

  • Donna

  • Great combinations. Goes well with the season.
