Summer whites and brights are warm-weather standards, but there’s a new shade in town when choosing your bottoms this season. Olive has joined the neutral ranks full-time and is an easy option for your neutral, printed and colored tops. Add olive pants, shorts, jeans or skirts to your bottoms rotation and your summer wardrobe instantly expands.
Here’s the scoop on what to wear with your olive bottoms.
Wear Olive with Neutrals
All basics apply here. Neutral tees pair seamlessly with olive bottoms; mix in knits with unique details like ruffles or crochet to add interest to your staples. Don’t forget about chambray this summer, too! The lightweight, Tencel top comes in an array of blues and it’s an easy seasonal match for your olive pants and shorts. Prefer a darker pairing? Wear your favorite black tee with an olive skirt and pop-of-print sandals.
Wear Olive with Brights or Pastels
Bold beauties like sunny yellows, rich reds or citrusy oranges warm up your olive bottoms. Go full bright with olive’s complementing shade and wear a coral tank or cherry red tee. Prefer a more subdued color combo? Try lavender, blush or sky blue to get that summer feeling on the subtle side. Layer a lavender cardigan over those neutral tops when the evening chill sets in or create a casual night-out stunner with a blush blouse, olive joggers and strappy heels.
Wear Olive with Prints
Put some prep in your step with stripes, gingham or plaid; or channel your inner garden goddess with florals to harmonize with the earthy olive. Think a classic plaid blazer, a chic Breton-striped top or a floral button-down blouse. Alternatively, break out your boho side with peasant tops and breezy cotton styles embellished with cool embroidered details at the neckline or hem.
With so many options, you’ll soon be sporting olive pants year-round. What do you like to wear with your olive pants? Let us know in the comments!
