When Olive Green Pairs Up with Different Animal Prints
Quote of the day: “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.” William Arthur Ward
When olive green pairs up with different animal prints, you have a recipe for fun outfits! Now that you can find animal prints in all sorts of clothing, the three of us put it to the test to compliment our olive green piece.
As I’ve discussed in a previous post (here), animal prints are quite popular and could be considered the norm. Some of you might remember the times when this print was thought of as sleazy or cheap!
Considering the entire idea of this series was to show how versatile the color olive green could be, another option was pairing it with red items in the last post (here).
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Who says animal print has to be browns and blacks? I figured the pink animal print scarf was a perfect accessory and it gave me an excuse to wear my favorite shoes again!
This scarf is an infinity scarf and I tried to get creative with tying it differently in this look. I put it around my neck, twisted it once close to my neck. Then with the remaining loop portion, I just tied a knot in it!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Since Nancy’s olive green and animal print are both muted in color, I added in white jeans.
I think white jeans are truly my go-to jeans in many outfits because they lighten up the entire look.
For the footwear, we had Nancy put on her black & grey booties, although you only see the black portion in these photos. Then to keep some cohesiveness, we picked black earrings and a black & gold necklace.
70’s Olive Green (Dress): For those of you who don’t love bright colors, here’s an example of an outfit with only muted colors, yet with some interest!
My mom’s animal print came into this outfit in the name of a belt and shoes!
The dress was created by my mom and she put all of the gold coins on the front for decoration. Since the coins are gold, we kept the bracelet and earrings in the same gold family. However, you may notice that the belt buckle is silver. Luckily, mixing our metals is now considered acceptable, so we have one thing less to stress over!!
Combining colors is a great way to to switch up the items in your closet, I believe!! We’ve tried to show you that any olive green item can work nicely with an animal print! Let me know how you feel about this combination! And for your convenience, here’s our outfits ready for you to pin on Pinterest!
Thanks and happiness to all!!
