How to Style Olive Green Pants for Spring


I always like to have a pair of olive pants as a denim alternative in my spring/summer wardrobe. They tend to read as a neutral, so they go well with other neutrals, but you can also pair them with bright colors or pastels. I tend to gravitate to neutrals, so these looks are all fairly subdued, but you can always add color in with your accessories or substitute a color for one of the neutral tones.

3 Easy Ways to Wear Olive Pants

These popular KUT from the Kloth Meg Wide Leg Pants were just restocked in the olive, so I’m sharing a few ways that I’ve worn them this spring. I also added some outfits with olive pants from last season for more neutral outfit inspiration!

Olive Pants + Denim Jacket

Olive pairs beautifully with denim, so the way I wear them most often is with a denim jacket and some type of tee or tank underneath. In this case, I’m actually wearing that v-neck sweater I styled yesterday in a calming shade of beige oatmeal heather.

Brown accessories warm up the look and create a pleasing contrast to the cooler tones in this outfit. These Sam Edelman sandals with the raffia accents add texture and tie in nicely to the straw clutch.


Here’s a similar outfit from last season, this time with a white tank and slim straight cargo pants. The sneakers and faded denim jacket give it a casual vibe, while the accessories and quality of the wardrobe pieces keep it polished.

Olive Pants + White Blouse

Another great way to style olive pants in the springtime is with a light and airy white blouse. This popover top has stripes in muted shades of black and beige, which brings some pattern to the neutral look.

I added a brown belt and did a front tuck to help define the waist and add another point of interest.


I wore a similar look last year with those slim straight cargo pants and a white popover top. The texture in the gauze fabric and the details like the button placket and cuffed sleeves are nice details and keep the outfit from looking so plain.

One again, I added a brown belt, and I love how these slide have a subtle print to them, but unfortunately they’re no longer available.

And of course, you can never go wrong with olive and black. Again, I’m borrowing pictures from last year, but happily, everything I’m wearing is still in stock! This elevated tee has a flattering v-neckline and a nice slub texture, and I bookended the look with black wedge sandals. These sandals are super luxe, and on sale right now at Saks!


For other options, I love this smocked tank from Evereve. I plan to wear it with the KUT from the Kloth Meg wide leg olive pants as soon as the weather warms up here. This flutter sleeve top would also be super cute with them.

I hope this post inspires you to style your olive pants this spring!
