30 Ways To Wear: Jeanswest Olive Soft Pull On Shorts With Floral Embroidery

It feels a little strange to be featuring these soft pull on embroidered olive shorts while it's winter here in Queensland and definitely not shorts weather any More! Having hit 31 wears with them this year though they definitely deserve a post to showcase the different ways I've worn these cute soft shorts.


30 ways To Wear: Soft Olive Embroidered Shorts


30 ways to wear olive soft pull on shorts with floral embroidery | away from blue blog

Unlike the striped tank I shared 30 outfits with last month, these shorts were not an impulse buy but something I'd thought about for a while before buying. A sale was the prefect time to snap them up, and it's nice to have a light, soft alternative to denim shorts in Brisbane's summer heat and humidity. Plus the elastic drawstring waist is a nice change from button or zip up shorts! They are made from Tencel, so it's a nice light fibre for a hot day too.


Cost Per Wear


I bought these Jeanswest Tessa embroidered olive shorts back in November 2017. I'm surprised it's taken me four summers to get them up to over 30 wears, they feel like such a staple to me now! At the time I didn't have a lot of green in my wardrobe but I was trying to challenge myself to wear it more - and with the floral embroidery and soft Tencel these shorts are so cute I had to have them, even if I found green tricky to wear at the time. I bought them on sale for just $41.99. At 31 wears that's $1.35 per wear - not quite at $1 per wear figure most people aim for, but certainly getting there!



Olive Shorts With Yellow

5 ways to wear olive soft pull on embroidered shorts with yellow mustard to pastel awayfromblue blog

Green and yellow are wonderful together and the nice thing about these neutral Olive Shorts is that they work with every shade of yellow I've tried with them! From a pastel, mustard or even more golden yellow, olive is the perfect pairing.



Olive and White

4 outfits of white with olive shorts easy summer outfits awayfromblue

Being a neutral, olive does go with so many shades and while I've paired it with brighter yellows above it also goes well with other neutral colours! White is one of those. From a white tee to a white kimono, any white piece is good to wear with olive shorts.



Olive And Grey

3 ways to wear grey tops and olive soft shorts awayfromblue

Grey is one of my favourite neutrals but can be a little tricker to wear with these olive shorts when there isn't much contrast with the tones of the grey and olive shades. I usually counteract this by adding other bright pieces, like necklaces, kimonos or a neon pink bag to a grey and olive outfit.



Olive And Black


Much like white, black is another staple neutral I wear with these shorts. I'll happily wear black year round, so of course it works in summer with olive shorts too. Black tanks or even light jackets when it's cooler are a good option to let the simple embroidered shorts shine.



Olive And Navy

3 ways to wear olive embroidered shorts with navy tops awayfromtheblue

Definitely not a follower of the "blue and green should never be seen" rule - I think that blue and green are beautiful together! I wear navy a lot with these soft olive shorts. A classic navy tee is a great choice, but you can add more navy with a bag or kimono as I have in a couple of these outfits.



Olive Shorts And Striped Tops

3 striped top and olive pull on shorts outfit ideas awayfromblue

Like the navy outfits above, stripes are another frequently worn option with the olive embroidered shorts. I like mixing stripes with other prints and so I like the way the stripes look with with delicate little floral embroidery on the hems.



Olive Shorts and Prints

4 different outfit ideas olive shorts and printed pieces awayfromtheblue

Because the floral embroidery on these shorts is so subtle, sometimes I'll  try other prints with these shorts too! As you can see in this trio of outfits and the ones above a kimono is a good way to do this, but you can also try a mixed print tank, tee, or light scarf too.



Olive Shorts Layered With Knits

5 ways to layer up olive shorts for autumn mum style knits and cardigans  awayfromtheblue

I've shared a lot of summer outfits with these shorts - as they are so good in the heat! But I've layered them up a little with knits for spring and autumn successfully. I find bright colours like the blue knitted jumpers work well, but cosy neutral cardigans in black and navy, as I've shown in the outfits above too, are a nice choice against the navy shorts.

  8. You look wonderful in shorts!
    Olive color is one of my favorites (quiet and neutral). It goes well with the pale yellow and also with mustard color. However, I like the olive colored shorts mostly with a black top.

  18. Fantastic, Mica! You're really showcasing how versatile these shorts can be! I would challenge you to even try further - you don't have any deep pinks or reds here, and both of those look amazing with olive, as does purple. Keep experimenting!

    I think my favourites are the yellows - it's such a pretty summery combination.

  29. Perfect timing for those of us experiencing summer. Those are a great pair of shorts - soft, comfortable, with the embroidery interest. Of course I LOVE them with the navy, but I was surprised how much the yellow looks held my attention. I can't wear all those shades of yellow, but I am interested in trying light yellow with my olive pieces now.

  31. Ooooo, you have a lot of yellow on here. It's such a cheerful color to wear in the Summer months. I actually just bought a yellow lightweight
    blouse. I like all the accessories you're wearing, they look a bit Bohemian. And I love the yellow cardigan. It looks really nice on you.

  33. I really like olive and navy together. I haven't worn my olive shorts as much this summer as I have been drawn to my longer shorts. But they will probably be in my closet for years to come as they are versatile as you have shown.

  57. It's amazing how those shorts do seem to go with everything. I don't even think of olive green as green in all respects. Obviously it is. But it's so muted that I think of it more like a brown.
