Discover this guide on how to style outfits with green pants to look fashionable and attractive at any time of year!

Let’s admit this – we all have at least one piece of clothing we don’t know how to wear. For instance, green pants can often get overlooked in our wardrobe just because we don’t know how to style them. 

This issue can be common among those who usually prefer standard denim jeans or black trousers, and trying new colored pants can be too much for them. 

Luckily, I’m here to help you out by sharing some trendy outfits with green pants for him and her.

So, without wasting any minute, let’s dive right in!

What Colors Go Well with Green Pants?

The first step in styling green pants is understanding which colors would complement them.

Green is a combination of blue and yellow; therefore, both colors will go well with green pants. However, if you’re wearing a lighter shade of green, you need to pick a shirt in pastel yellow or blue.

Next, if you want to spice up your style with brighter colors, it’s recommended to go for orange, purple, or red. These colors stand on the opposite part of the color wheel, making them perfect for outfits with green pants.

Finally, if you’re wearing khaki or more neutral-colored green trousers, you should also look out for shirts in neutral colors. For instance, you can choose white, beige, black, and tan.

7 Styles of Green Pants and What to Wear with Them

Outfits with green pants are on top of trends this season. You can find them in various designs, and there’s no shortage of styles to choose from. 

Below, I’m sharing the top seven models of green pants fashion and how you can style them

1) Straight

This style of trousers is extremely popular nowadays. You can see girls wearing straight pants with large pockets, also known as cargo trousers, in various colors, including green, beige, black, and white. This model is usually high-waisted with slightly wide leg room going down in a straight manner. 

Khaki straight trousers, as well as army green pants, are also widely popular. The best way to style them for girls is with crop tops, while men can wear these pants with oversized T-shirts or hoodies. 

As for the shoes, white sneakers are perfect for creating stylish outfits. You can go for chunky sandals as well. Since the large pockets add volume to the design, I recommend wearing voluminous shoes to maintain balance.

2) Skinny

Skinny green pants are highly versatile, and you can use them to create formal as well as casual male and female outfits. For creating formal outfits with green pants, men can wear a tucked-in white shirt with a black blazer and classic shoes. Women can style them with a louse shirt, high heels, and a big bag to create an official outfit for business meetings. 

As for casual style, you can wear skinny pants with anything, as their sleek design fits every type of top and jacket. Both men and women can style skinny green trousers with a basic t-shirt and put on a comfy sweatshirt or hoodie when it’s chilly outside.

3) Boot-cut

This style of pants is a combination of skinny and wide-leg trousers. The upper part is slim, usually with a high waist, while the bottom part near the shoes is wider. Outfits with green pants that have a wider bottom can be both formal and informal. 

If the material of the pants is thicker, like in jeans, I recommend styling them with sneakers and sweatshirts for a comfy outdoor look. However, if the material is softer, like silk, these trousers can be styled with heels and a nice blouse to create a more formal look.

4) Flare

Flare pants are another trendy model for styling casual outfits. The most notable feature of these trousers is the super wide-leg part. You can style them with a mono-colored tank top or a cute top with flare sleeves that matches the pants. 

Also, you can create outfits with green pants of this model with a white tank top and a green blazer but in a darker or lighter shade than the trousers. As for the shoes, chunky white sneakers are the best option.

5) Wide-leg

Green pants with a wide-leg design are ideal for creating both formal and casual looks. The cut of these pants is narrow at the top and goes wider as it gets lower. You can create a perfect everyday outfit with these trousers by styling them with a black crop top and cute sandals. 

As for a more professional look, you can style them with a loose white button-down shirt, and for a more edgy look, you can choose an animal print shirt. Complete the outfit with stylish hills and a bag in the same color.

6) Palazzo

Green palazzo pants are perfect if you’re planning to go out with your friends or looking for an alternative to a cocktail dress. This model is also suitable for formal outfits. Palazzo trousers are known for their unique style with super wide legs that go wide from top to bottom.

To create an evening look with green palazzo pants, make an accent with accessories. For instance, you can wear elegant shoes and a bag with some chic jewelry to complete the look. However, you can style these pants in a simpler way for non-formal occasions, too.

7) Sweatpants

What can be more comfortable than a pair of soft sweatpants? To me personally, these are unbeatable when it comes to comfort. Sweatpants are usually used for creating casual and relaxed outfits for both men and women.

You can style green sweatpants with t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies in colors that go well with green. For instance, it can be other shades of green, white, black, beige, or brighter colors like purple and orange. The same color palette works for the sneakers.

Now that you know how to style green clothes, it’s time to find out what you should never wear with green pants.

What not to Wear with Green Pants?

Even though green pants are easy to style with other colors, there are some colors you better avoid. I definitely don’t recommend wearing green pants with red unless it’s Christmas. Green and red are considered to be the main colors of the holiday, and wearing them together is only suitable during this time of the year.

Also, you should bear in mind the fact that not all shades of green go well together. Some of them contain more notes of yellow, and some are close to blue, so combining these shades of green can look off fashion.

Over to You

To sum up the article, I can proudly say that green pants are very easy to style, and the above examples will hopefully help you out in the process. 

Both men and women can create stunning outfits with green pants. All you have to do is follow the earlier-mentioned color combination tips.
