5 Outfits With Olive Green Linen Pants for Summer

Huge thanks to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post

I’ve been telling you about these PMT favorite linen joggers for a while, so today I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle to show you five different outfits with olive green linen pants!

I’ve told you all a billion times why I love shopping at Nordstrom, but in case you’re new around here, there are some things you NEED to know! Nordstrom has some amazing pieces that are super comfortable, first of all. It’s where I find my most comfortable jeans, denim jackets, work pants, and more, that are amazingly stretchy and soft! Another reason I have to highlight is that it’s so easy to shop online there. Nordstrom offers free shipping and free return shipping on all orders in the U.S. Ordering online can be tricky, so I appreciate that I can always order multiple sizes with Nordstrom to find my best fit and return for free the ones that don’t work. You can also order online and use the curbside pickup service. Very convenient! And, if you’re a member of The Nordy Club, you get perks, like earning points on your orders and receiving store credit for using their alterations services. Check out The Nordy Club HERE!

Now, onto the linen joggers. Linen pants are a must for me in the summer! Sometimes you just need to wear pants, and linen is lightweight and more breathable. And, these particular joggers are favorites of fellow PMT readers. They’re really lightweight, NOT scratchy like other linen pants can be, and have a great jogger silhouette. They come in 5 colors and are available in straight and petite lengths HERE and plus sizes HERE. I wear size S.

There are so many different tops you can wear with these joggers, and today I’ll share a few of them so that you can make the most of your summer wardrobe!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

 

Outfit #1
A white tee is a great basic that goes with tons of bottoms, including these linen joggers. This tee by Caslon is one of my favorite white tees because it has an awesome drape. That said, it’s fairly thin, which is great for the summer when you want lighter weight clothes, but it’s not great if you want a thicker tee. As far as whether or not it’s see-through, this is a bit sheer, but the heather texture compensates for it. Some PMTers don’t feel the need to wear a cami under it while others do. I personally wear one sometimes and don’t other times, depending on my mood. It comes in lots of colors and a few prints, which you can find HERE. I wear size S.

Shop the Outfit:
Tee: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Pants: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Sandals: c/o Nordstrom (exact—wearing size 9)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact; similar—great quality, has zipper)

 

Outfit #2
If you like the ease of tees and live in them during the summer but want to have at least some variety in your style, go for a striped tee! It will provide more visual interest and look different and distinct from a plain tee while being just as comfortable and easy to wear.

This tee is thin and lightweight, but it’s not see-through. So, it’s a great weight keeping you cooler on warm summer days! Similar to the tee above, it has a good drape. It comes in 9 colors, which you can see HERE. I’m wearing size S in Black-Ivory Northshore Stripe.

If you prefer a more open neckline, there is a super similar version with a rounded v-neck HERE in Black-White Julia Stripe. It’s the same tee as the white one I’m wearing in the previous outfit above, just in a black and white stripe print. I wear size S.

You can finish off this outfit with black or white sandals, but since I like to mix up neutrals, I went with tan! Check out these sandals HERE. I’m wearing size 9.

Shop the Outfit:
Tee: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S, similar)
Pants: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Sandals: c/o Nordstrom (exact—wearing size 9)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact; similar—great quality, has zipper)

 

Outfit #3
Olive is a pseudo-neutral and can go with a lot more colors than you’d think, so have fun and pair it with pinks, blues, yellows, purples, and even orange, like we’re doing here!

I really like these muscle tanks, BTW. They are lightweight without feeling paper thin, and they are slightly textured, which I feel like gives them a bit more style. Sometimes that little touch goes a long way! They come in 6 colors. Check them out HERE. I wear size S.

Shop the Outfit:
Tee: c/o Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Jacket: Nordstrom (exact—I wear size M; similar—I wear size M)

Pants: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Shoes: Nordstrom (similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact; similar—great quality, has zipper)

Outfit #4
You can also break out of the t-shirt and tank top realm and pair these joggers with a slightly nicer top for an elevated, but still relaxed, look.

This top is thicker and has a bit of structure, a square neckline, and a ribbed texture (which you can see much better on the product site, HERE, if you zoom all the way in), which all help elevate it from a casual t-shirt. However, the material feels somewhat casual, so you can pair it with casual bottoms like these linen joggers. This top is a fun piece that can be dressed down with linen joggers like I did here or paired with denim shorts or jeans for an elevated casual outfit. It comes in this cream version and a black version. Check them out HERE. I’m wearing size M, but I think I might prefer size S, as the shoulders are a little too wide for me in M. Sizes are somewhat limited, but see if you can score one in your size! If not, there is a super similar one with cute buttons down the front, HERE.

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size M, similar)
Pants: Nordstrom (exact—wearing size S)
Sandals: c/o Nordstrom (exact—wearing size 9)
Bag: Nordstrom (similar)

 

Outfit #5
Even though these joggers are really casual, you can pair them with a nicer top, like this versatile blouse that I’ve shown you before. This top is fantastic for business casual outfits and transitions seamlessly to elevated casual outfits when paired with jeans and nice flats or wedges. But, you can dress it down even more with a pair of linen pants like I did here. If you still have plenty of video work meetings and want to look nice on top but be comfortable, casual, and stay cooler this summer, this outfit is great for that!

This print is nearly sold out, but this top comes in soooo many more great solid colors and prints. I think that any of the solid black, Blue Cashmere, Pink Chintz, Ivory Cloud, Blue Cool, Tan Abstract Animal Print, the black polka dot version, and Pink Sheer Meadow Floral would all work really well with these olive joggers! Like I said, olive goes with way more colors than you’d think, and there are tons of options with this top. Check them all out HERE. I wear size M.

You can make quite a lot of outfits with olive linen joggers, and these are just a few of them. They are super versatile and are really useful in the summer! Remember, they come in 5 colors, so check them out in straight and petite HERE and plus sizes HERE.
