How to wear forest green

I sometimes get too excited about popular colors like grey, black, white and blue. These are colors that are easy to style. At the same time, I don’t want to have a fixed mindset when it comes to outfit ideas. I want to be proud to tell my friends that I have a growth philosophy. Variety is good for outfits as there are 365 days a year. In this blog post, I’m going to explore one of the prettiest non-stream outfit colors: the forest green.

Dark green knit sweater & forest green skirt


I’ll start the list with a nice outfit next door. Pair a dark green cable sweater with a forest green mini skirt. If you don’t know how to finish, a pair of leggings and black ballerina shoes are a great option. The feel of the outfit perfectly matches the mood of autumn and winter.

For a business-casual look that’s fit for spring, you can wear a green slim-fit sweater with a black striped pencil skirt. To look even more demure, simply replace the skirt with a black pencil or flared skirt.

Forest green blazer with orange blouse

This is a great example of how unconventional color combinations can make you look creative and fun. Just wear an orange blouse with a forest green blazer for the top. Instead of protecting it with black trousers or skinny jeans, the outfit becomes crazier when paired with navy blue floral pants. The contrast of the orange, green and navy is stunning but you absolutely have to try them on and see how it looks as some people just don’t look good with crazy colors.

White button down shirt with forest green pants

One thing I like so much about the white button down shirt is that it can be worn in any color. You can at least look decent as long as the shirt and pants are cut to fit your body and you make a good choice of shoes to match your pants. For this outfit, simply wear the white shirt with forest green drainpipes. The brown suede ankle boots are the perfect shoes to wear.

Green button shirt is not seen that often. If you can get one, you can just wear it in black skinny pants and light pink heels. Alternatively, white jeans also go well with the outfit.
