19 Christmas Season Outfits with Olive Green for Winter Style

I will be posting Christmas season outfit inspiration Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri of this week (with Style Imitating Art on Wed).


Green outfit idea posts: green + black, bright green, dark green.



Today's focus is on shades of olive green: moss, sage, fern, aloe vera, asparagus, army green, tea green, laurel green...all the green colors with a soft, muted quality.


Green is a great Christmas color that doesn't have to be paired with black to be effective. Other neutrals, semi-neutrals, and accent colors can work well in a green holiday season outfit. Use green as a dominant color or as a pop of color against a neutral background. Incorporate seasonal textures like suede, velvet, faux fur, tweed, leather, and sweater knits...or not. Go all-in with touches of red and/or Christmas motif prints/jewelry or keep the nod to the season more subtle.


Here are 19 outfits from my previous OOTD with olive green suitable across a range of temperatures/weather and occasions for some Christmas season outfit inspiration. (Of course this color works outside the holiday season, too...so pin any outfits for future inspiration.)

Your bracelet stacks and scarves add so much interest to your outfits that feature the olive green color. I especially like the amber, salmon, and coral hues in your accessories against the olive green in your apparel pieces. Thank you for sharing this post in the Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 46.

Those colors really do pop nicely against olive green, don't they? Thanks, Carol!

I like the way you use your accessories, it makes the same outfit look different, adds texture, colours and vibe. Great collection, Sally. Anna

I am trying to become friends with olive green. It’s a rocky relationship. But I do have ine olive green outfit, which I will eventually share. It’s tricky for me. I’ll be pinning this post for olive green inspiration. Michelle

I can see how olive isn't a go-to color for you, Michelle, since you tend to wear brighter shades. I'll be interested to see what you came up with!

It is amazing how olive green seems to go with everything. I especially love how it contrasts with pinks and yellows too. XOXO Jodie

It is such a versatile color, and I love that it can read like a neutral while still having that "color" feel. Thanks, Jodie!

I love this colour and vowed to get more in my wardrobe, but there's really not much around now! I thought it would be the colour of the season! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier my lovely. x Jacqui

It's frustrating when the color you're looking for isn't available! Well maybe the next year will be better on that front. Thanks, Jacqui!
