I need help on what color dress pants and dress shoes to wear. I am thinking khaki color dress pants and black dress shoes?

I think khaki because this person has something similar on and is wearing khaki color dress pants.

White polo underneath, Navy Blue pants, black shoes, and a black Belt. But that's just me.

1. Bottom:
I think jeans will be appropriate. Dark-washed blue colored jeans. For pants: try to wear something darker on the bottom. Avoid matching it by wearing light-colored pants / khakis unless it is not winter OR your are in tropical places such as Miami or LA.
2. Underneath:
I would say you can wear a button down underneath that. The color can be either white or natural / non-popping colors. But they have to be lighter colored than the sweater. Avoid black at any cost. Or if you want something to accentuate it, you can wear white shirt with stripes (the striped SHOULD be darker than the sweater color).
3. IF You dont want to wear anything underneath:
You can wear it as a pop-up color on your dull-colored winter ensemble. Like you can wear that with nothing underneath and black peacoat and dark grey pants.
4. Shoes:
Preferably something lighter than black. Perhaps brown. But again it will depends on the shoes / boots you wear.

That is what I suggest. However you can also wear it with whatever you want!

I recall another thread where a poster commented that she hates when people wear green shirts with tan pants. Apparently it makes them look like a tree.

I can't help but think of Garanimals when I see alligators on sweaters.
