HIT OR MISS – GREEN PANTS
Yay! My favorite time of the week is here!!! It is Wednesday, so that means that the week is half over, and the weekend will soon be here. AND, it also means that it is time for my Hit or Miss post. I am showing an outfit each Wednesday and asking for your input. Is the outfit a HIT, or is it a MISS? Plus, would you wear the outfit or parts of the outfit?
With all outfits, there will be items that you love and parts that are only okay. Maybe the proportions are off, the colors do not go well with your skin tone, or the style is too trendy or matronly. Today, I’m challenging you by wearing a bright green pair of pants. It will be fun to see who loves this look, who would wear it, and who says the green pants need to be switched out for another color.
I bought this striped button-front shirt intending to style it with dark wash jeans. My thoughts were that the shirt added a tiny bit of green to look festive for St. Patrick’s Day, but not add so much green. Once I saw the shirt, I knew that I had to take a photo of it with a pair of green pants that I had just received. The shirt would also look great with white, navy, or khaki pants, or you could be wild and add it to pink or red pants.
This shirt is a tad on the loose side, so the medium fit me great with no issues or gaps with buttons. It has a shirttail hem, so it is nice and long in the back, and I like long sleeves that allow me to cuff them if I want. The shirt is 100% cotton and machine washable.
Here is a side view showing you the shirttail hem. I have it tucked in the front, so it would be a little longer if it weren’t tucked in.
I love combining navy and green, as I mentioned in Monday’s post. I love how the dark navy trench coat tied this outfit together and gave it a completely different look. Adding the completer piece made the outfit look finished and polished. That is the beauty of adding a 3rd piece to a look; it makes it look complete.
A classic trench coat is a great essential piece for spring. Trench coats in the past have been too “old” looking, and I have never embraced the look on me. I’ve been looking for a great trench of excellent quality and a classic design so that I could wear it for years. This one is it! It is an excellent medium to heavyweight, and it will be perfect for spring and fall, so you will get more wear from it. The classic navy color will work with any outfit, which is also versatile.
Here is the length of the trench coat in the back. I’m wearing a size 10, and I think the fit is great. I can wear a lightweight sweater with it, and it will still button closed if needed. Honestly, I usually never button my coats, but I will occasionally use the belt as a tie to keep them closed.
I added my favorite Gold Statement Hoop Earrings to this look and a multi-strand necklace. The multi-strand necklace is an old one that I’ve had for a while, but there are still plenty of multi-strand necklaces to choose from on the website. Also, I noticed the Hoop Earrings were almost sold out on one website, so here is another website that carries them for the same price.
Okay, now for the Riveria Slim Pants in green. You’ll either love them or hate them because they are such a statement item. The Kelly Green color is bright and bold, and it will get lots of attention. Honestly, I was surprised that I liked the pants; I didn’t think I would. Instead, I kept thinking of other ways to wear them, and these pants are staying in my closet. I’m wearing a size 8 in the pants, and they fit me great.
I had someone ask the other day if I keep all of the clothing I style, and the answer is no. Some don’t fit me correctly, some are repeats of things already in my closet, and some I don’t end up liking. Plus, I don’t have as large of a closet as before, so I am trying to be pickier about what I keep. Since I don’t have green pants in my closet, these get to stay! Unfortunately, the green color is sold out, but I’ll link to similar options.
My Coach Signature slingback flats are adorable. Flats are something that I struggle with, and I tend to reach for heels instead. But, I know a lot of you need flats because of issues with your feet, so I will try and include more shoe options for you. I love a pointy toe, so these were perfect in that department. Plus, they have a great unique detail of gold studs that outline the sole of the flats. These run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9 in them.
Now, it is time for your input…Hit or Miss? What do you like about the outfit, and what would you change?
