Outfit Inspiration

If you like these budget-friendly and versatile olive green cords, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to check out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Cute & Cozy

Product Info: Cords- Old Navy, Sweater- Dorothy Perkins, Hat- Fossil, Shoes- Tilly’s, Knuckle Ring- Miss Selfridge, Black Stone Ring- Swell

Create a stylish everyday look by pairing the cords with an adorable, attention-grabbing sweater. (Seriously, who doesn’t like penguins?!) Combat boots give the outfit some edge, while this rhinestone-adorned knit hat adds a bit of sparkle. For the finishing touch, accessorize with several unique rings, like the ones above.

Outfit #2: Pretty & Polished

Product Info: Cords- Old Navy, Blouse- H&M, Cardigan- Mango, Shoes- ASOS, Watch- Target, Earrings- ModCloth

For another casual and trendy outfit, try pairing the cords with a white button-up that features a studded collar. A leopard print cardigan is a fun touch, while oxfords are the perfect shoe choice for cooler – but still not snowy – weather. Rose gold jewelry, in the form of a watch and some leaf-shaped earrings, finishes off the look.

Outfit #3: Golden Glimmer

Product Info: Cords- Old Navy, Top- Lord & Taylor, Necklace- Ann Taylor, Clutch- ASOS, Nail Polish- Essie’s “Chubby Cheeks”, Shoes- Zappos

This week’s Fab Find can work for dressy occasions, too! Just try pairing the cords with a metallic dolman-sleeve top and taupe ankle booties for an on-trend, seasonal look. Accessorize with a layered statement necklace to add interest, then grab a tasseled clutch. Also, try painting your nails a pretty red shade, which contrasts nicely against the olive green color of the pants.

    I love outfits number 1 and 2 because they are the perfect transition from day to night, and as a student on a budget I am always looking for a way to make my wardrobe pieces multitask.

    I love outfits two and three! I wish they made cords that aren’t skinny though, I have so much trouble trying to find boot cut ones.

    I agree with Alana – I really want some good bootcut cords, but they are SO hard to find. As much as I want bootcut, I’m going to snag these skinny ones from Old Navy anyway since I basically own everything for the first outfit. As for Katha’s comment, the cords are also available in 12 other colors. I think Olive is a great choice for these outfits because it works for many climates; here in South Carolina where it’s not that cold, up in Michigan where it’s quite chilly, and probably even in California. Olive is also a neutral and unlike, say, the Green Goddess color, can go from casual during class to semi-professional. Time to go order these and hope to goodness they fit.

    Nice! I’ve been looking for olive colored jeans for a while, and cords are even better. Forever21’s cords are even more expensive than this. I will probably buy these. :)

    @Alana & Virginia- I found you guys some bootcut cords at AE, Anthropologie and Victoria’s Secret! They’re pricier than the Old Navy ones (around $50), but definitely check them out if you’re looking for that style.

    LC Lauren Conrad at Kohls (both online and in stores) has some pretty awesome and high quality skinny cords on sale right now. They aren’t in olive green (red, blue, grey, pink, ivory if i remember right) but they are so warm and transition easily from casual to dressy. I bought the red and ivory ones, and they are quickly becoming my favorite pairs of pants for this chilly Utah winter.

    As soon as I saw this post, I immediately bought these pants! Same color and everything, they are skinny yet non-restrictive, somewhat stretchy. They are warm!!! love the color, love everything (also the price). THANKS CF!
