How To Get a Chic & Modern Earthy Aesthetic

Wearing earthy outfits is a great way to be more in touch with nature, even when you’re in the office or living in a city. As the name suggests, the earthy outfits aesthetic centers around nature-inspired textures and earth tones, with hints of boho and ‘granola girl’ elements. In other words, the outfits have a down-to-earth vibe that feels one with nature 

Compared to other fashion trends that come and go, earthy outfits are always “in style” when you incorporate a balanced mix of on-trend and classic pieces. But to really achieve that natural vibe, an earthy color palette is key.

Earthy Outfit Ideas

If you love neutrals or want to incorporate more earthy elements in your outfits, keep reading! Up ahead, I’m sharing exactly how to achieve an earthy aesthetic and the best items to shop for if you’re into natural vibes.

Whether you’re going for a casual look or something dressier, you’ll fall in love with these timeless options.

Granola girl accessories.

This first outfit has chic granola girl vibes. If you’re unfamiliar with the granola girl aesthetic, here’s a quick rundown! Granola girls are earthy, free-spirited, and love incorporating eco-friendly products into their lifestyle. 

When it comes to clothing, you’ll see them rocking earth-toned garments and toting around outdoorsy accessories, like a baseball hat, practical tote bag, and Birkenstocks (of course). I’d style these with baggy jeans and a chic sweater for a simple yet elevated everyday look. 

Barn jacket + clogs.

Christal wearing jeans, a brown top, a tan utility jacket and Ugg shoes.

get the look:

This inspo has all the elements of a casual yet cute earthy outfit.

You don’t have to live near a barn to own a barn jacket. This outerwear piece is great for layering and transitional weather. Granola girls keep sustainability in mind when getting dressed, which is one reason why I love this eco-conscious version from Everlane

Clogs of all shapes and styles add a boho aesthetic to your OOTD. Start with a timeless pair of Birkenstocks or these suede clogs from Zara that go with everything.

Wide-leg jeans, loafers + slouchy bag.

get the look:

Wide-leg jeans, loafers, and a slouchy bag have a ’70s hippie vibe that I can’t get enough of. Coordinate earthy creams and moss greens throughout your look for a cohesive, elevated vibe that still feels down-to-earth. Pearl jewelry is also a great way to add an earthy, organic vibe to your look. 

I love this outfit’s color combo, but you can easily use your favorite neutrals to create a similar look. 

Keep it casual.

Christal wearing jeans, a grey cardigan and brown Ugg flats.

get the look:

If you love the earthy outfit aesthetic but aren’t sure where to start, this is the look for you. 

Recreate this outfit at home with your favorite pair of straight-leg jeans and a casual cardigan before sliding on some Ugg Tasman slippers(or try these more affordable alternatives from Quince). This comforting ensemble is one I’d wear throughout fall and winter—just add a trench coat for a warm layer!

Cuffed jeans, button-up shirt + tote bag.

Flat lay outfit graphic of jeans, a white tank top, a striped button down, white mesh mules and a green baseball cap.

get the look:

Make this earthy outfit your new spring uniform. Complete with cuffed jeans, a white tank, and a loose button-up, this laidback look can take you from school on the weekdays to running errands on the weekend. Accessorize with a green cap, tote bag, and trendy flats for a stylish ensemble.

On hot summer days, swap the jeans for linen shorts!

Tee shirt, jeans + wrap coat.

Christal wearing jeans, a white tee, a brown duster coat and green sneakers.

get the look:

The tried-and-true combo of a tee shirt and jeans is a failsafe outfit option for casual days when you want to be comfy but cute. 

For the granola girl stamp of approval, opt for a National Park graphic tee or a logo shirt from your favorite wellness brand. Go for dark wash denim to achieve a smarter look, or light wash jeans for a more casual vibe. Green Adidas Sambas add a practical pop of color while this camel overcoat keeps me cozy on crisp days.

Shades of brown.

get the look:

Brown is one of my favorite earth shades to style. It never fails to add an elevated touch that warms up any look. In this earthy outfit, I’ve sprinkled in pops of brown with a leather jacket, sunglasses, and a brown Quince crossbody pouch

Not all earthy outfits have a rustic, bohemian aesthetic! A denim maxi skirt, bodysuit, and Samba sneakers keep this outfit feeling fresh and modern. Perfect if you live in a city and are heading to a lunch date, concert, or museum.

With a flannel.

Christal wearing white cargo pants, a brown top and a flannel button down.

get the look:

A flannel has an outdoorsy vibe that fits perfectly with earthy aesthetic outfits. For an easy everyday look, I’d style this closet basic with off-white barrel leg jeans (one of my favorites right now) and a top that pulls out the earth tones in my flannel overshirt from Jenni Kayne.

Comfy footwear is always in fashion, so I’ve gone with my Zara clogs that are basically slippers you’re allowed to wear outside. What’s better than that? If clogs aren’t your style, sneakers or loafers would look just as cool. Oh, and don’t forget a suede tote like this one for all of your essentials. 

Cargo skirt + denim jacket.

get the look:

This cargo midi skirt is a fresh take on the current cargo pants trend. Paired with this denim barrel jacket from Everlane, the outfit has an outdoorsy, utilitarian vibe that’s super practical. To make this look feel more high-fashion, I’d style it with sandals, chic sunnies, and a woven leather bag.

Slouchy sweater + ecru jeans.

Christal wearing white cargo pants, a mauve sweater and Ugg flats.

get the look:

This simple outfit formula is one I wear on repeat. 

You can’t go wrong with jeans and a cozy knit (this one from Jenni Kayne is incredibly soft and the color is very earthy). Swapping denim jeans for these off-white barrel leg jeans brings an airiness to the outfit that’s perfect for transitional spring weather.

Lean into the laid-back vibes with your comfiest pair of shoes and a shoulder bag that holds all your essentials. 

Cargo trousers, vest top + heels.

get the look:

Tailored pants are one of those elegant, versatile pieces that never go out of style. I think these cargo-inspired trousers are a great way to have fun with trends while staying timeless! They have that earthy aesthetic but are still dressy enough for work or evenings out. 

In my opinion, these cargo trousers look best with simple garments like a white tee shirt or elevated linen vest top. Let your accessories shine with silver jewelry, a straw bag, and heeled sandals. If it’s chilly, grab a trench coat or oversized blazer to shrug over your shoulders. 

Natural prints.

Christal wearing a printed slip skirt with a brown cardigan and black accessories.

get the look:

Nature-inspired floral, animal, and botanical prints are another way you can add an earthy element to your outfits! I love this Jenni Kayne leopard midi skirt because it can be dressed up or down and acts as a fun pop of pattern without being over the top. But you could achieve a similar look with leopard print pants—another huge trend for 2024.

Leopard print goes great with black and brown. I’ve pulled in both shades with a teddy brown cardigan and black accessories. Make this look more casual simply by swapping the kitten heels for white sneakers.

Keep it neutral.

get the look:

Incorporating earth tones is one way to soften up a monochromatic black-and-white outfit. I love the combination of a white tee shirt and off-white jeans, especially with cute woven ballet flats and a trend-forward shoulder bag. The Cooper Cardigan simultaneously warms up the outfit’s color palette and adds a warm layer for cool spring days.

Summer chic.

Christal wearing linen pants and an oversized cardigan with a straw bag and black flip flops.

get the look:

This is one earthy outfit I’ll be wearing on repeat this spring and summer. Linen pants should be a staple in everyone’s closet, especially if you love wearing natural and sustainable materials! 

Here, I’ve paired mine with a slouchy cashmere cardigan but you could also opt for a bodysuit or tee shirt in any neutral shade. This woven Anine Bing tote, chunky flip-flops, and Celine sunnies (affordable alternative) are my go-to accessories for summer.

If I were making this an evening look, I’d swap out my shoes for heeled sandals and my tote bag for a smaller clutch.

Gorgeous in green.

Try this earthy outfit idea for your next fancy occasion. 

I love how these soft earth tones complement one another. A mossy green slip skirt and coordinating bodysuit are a stunning base. Combined with a tan cardigan and matching sling-back heels, I feel like the final look is streamlined and timeless. Diamond accessories and a cream clutch are the cherry on top! 

I’d wear this on my next romantic date night, but it also looks elegant for the office or an event. 

Linen pants + cashmere hoodie.

Christal wearing white wide leg jeans and a beige oversized sweater.

get the look:

This outfit has a hippie chic vibe that is super easy to wear come spring and summer.

I wore my wide-leg linen pants with this cashmere hoodie for an elevated take on loungewear. I swear, it feels just as comfy as wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants, but you look more put-together. I’ve worn this outfit with suede clogs and an oversized bag for a boho touch.

Earthy tones and textures.

Flat lay outfit graphic of linen pants, a crochet tank top, a denim jacket, white mesh loafers and gold accessories.

get the look:

This final outfit is all about embracing earthy tones and textures. Linen blend pants, knit tank, denim jacket, raffia bag, and gold jewelry are all made from natural materials, which adds a lot of texture and brightness to the overall look. Finish with a playful element, like these on-trend mesh flats.
