Style Trend: Going Green


I love the look of these military skinny cargo pants that Khloe Kardashian, Leighton Meester, and  Jessica Alba are wearing.  They are urban chic and stylish yet comfortable and relaxed.
So a couple of weeks ago I was Nordstrom and I came across the oh so popular and adorable JBrand Houlihan Skinny Cargo pants.  I really like these skinny cargo pants and  I really like JBrand jeans in general because they are high quality and fit me well.   I am thinking about adding a pair of skinny cargo pants to my fall wardrobe because they are a nice change from the denim and black skinny jeans I wear all the time.  These cargo pants would look great with booties or heels and a nice feminine top would complete the look.


Here are a couple of more options by Level 99  and Free People.



So, I decided to check out asos and see if they had any cargo pants.  I know many of you bloggers out there have shopped at asos.   But for my friends who are not familiar with asos, you should check out this UK site. They offer free shipping to the US and the prices are reasonable.

Here are a few "green" items I adore from asos.  As you can see I got a little sidetracked when I was searching for some skinny cargo pants.   But, since asos does not have a wide selection of cargo pants I figured why not share with you some other cute "green" items.


And here's just a picture of me wearing my favorite green item from the summer.  This beaded tie-neck tank from Banana Republic has been one of my go to tops for the past couple of weeks.  In a few weeks when the weather gets chilly here in Boston, I will pair this top with a blazer or cardigan and it will be perfect weekend wear. 

Have you added "green" to your wardrobe yet?

Personally, I don't think Jessica Alba puts a foot wrong in the fashion stakes. I think she's a good example to follow. Your outfit looks great!

Tamara Nicole said...

Love it! I am loading up on green and gray for fall, so excited:-)

Josie said...

You look so darling! I'm loving this shade right now -- how cute does Leighton look? I'm drooling over a pair of army green Current/Elliot pants right now!

I want a pair of cargo pants so bad!! Great outfit. Love military green! SarahD:)

Café Bellini said...

I like Leighton's look! Now I want a pair, too! ps the inimitable intense mascara is really good, at least for me but it always depends on the lashes. Worth a try!

Krystal said...

oh my gosh you look beautiful!! and i love this because green is my fave color :)

Constant said...

I love this!
Your bag is great!

miffalicious said...

I love that top and the pants(: Green and olive are the colors that keep recurring in my fall wardrobe!(:

Fashion Meets Food said...

definitely loving all these. I was never a green fan, but it's wearing off on me.

phoebe said...

These pants are great! I am definitely checking Asos out!

MelissaNibbles said...

I love your top!
I like cargo pants as loose, comfy pants. I think the skinny jean version looks weird.

Cara said...

I used to have cargo pants just like these- I used to give away all my clothes, but not anymore, b/c styles always come back!

GB said...

Love this!! Skinnies don't look all that great on me, but I love the military greens and I liked all your picks too!

Lynzy said...

I have been on the lookout for the perfect army green cargos :)

I've been wearing this shade all summer and will take it into fall. I also die over Khloe's shoes.

I agree, I love the look of the skinny cargos. I got a pair at Zara at the beginning of summer that are similar to the JBrands. Love your outfit too!!

i like this trend. cute top!

Valerie said...

The army green is really tickling my fancy right now as well. It's so understated but fresh. You look amazing in that outfit, Naina! I'd say this is definitely your color. I currently only have a few items in this color, but I'm always on the lookout for an extra addition for Fall. Hope you had a great weekend!

I definitely really like the skinny cargos as long as they're worn with heels..

Thank you so much for your sweet comment this morning! xo

bollywoodstylediaries said...

I love the skinny cargo pants and I am planning to buy one..My issue is I am only 5ft so have to find the perfect top to balance it and not make me look very short:(

U look cute and I love ur hair!! prefectly tousled:-)

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ooh, I love the color that Leighton Meester is wearing - I would definitely buy a pair of those! I actually added two green military jackets/cardigans to my wardrobe this past week - can't wait to wear them this fall!! :)

Emma said...

I love this post, and I am completely going green this season.

No, I actually don't, but that's just because I haven't done any major shopping in the longest time! It's on my list tho ;-)

Alicia said...

I have the JBrand cargos and I love them! I hope this trend sticks around for a while.

this free bird said...

Naina I am in full on recovery mode, but wanted to stop by and say hi - and thank you for the kind birthday wishes :)

I have the JBrand cargos and they are well worth the money. Picked them up in spring and have worn them straight through. So far so good!

Jammer said...

I have a pair of skinny cargos that I CANNOT wait to wear! I can't believe my wardrobe actually has me wishing away summer lol.

I love the purse, the belt, the top (on the bottom/center), the jacket.... and your top! I have not yet added green to my wardrobe, but apparently, I need to!!

Love that gorgeous green top of yours - and love how you paired it with the braided belt! Very cute.

cargo skinnies a fall must-have i think. they're the perfect casual chic go-to. want everything you've selected from asos...the leather jacket and boots are incredible! very cute BR top and the woven belt is the perfect for this look

I like how they've glammed the pants up with heels. I love your outfit and shades

Vibhuti said...

Naina,

And youve made such perfect choices...I love the entire 'Green' idea..and yes, you make me itch to add some stuff like these to my fall wardrobe too..Though i'm not'Skinny' at all! LOL
And to tell you, sadly I came down with viral flu this weekend and there was 'No SHOPPING' at all as planned..:((
