If you need to put some shine in your wardrobe and ultimately your style, what better way to do this than with the colour green?
Green is a refreshing and revitalising shade that lends itself to many colour combinations in fashion, beauty and interior design combinations.
Green is nature’s fresh and zesty colour. It is also associated with meanings of growth, and also brings a sense of hope, and adventure.
There are so many shades of green to choose from; from olive, lime green to emerald green and, depending on your choice, there is a shade to suit everyone. It can be one of the most beautiful colours in your wardrobe. Find the hue that works for your skin tone.
Don’t wear green head to toe (unless, of course, you are very brave). Green is a statement colour, tone down the rest of your outfit. So play it safe and sophisticated with black, navy blue, white, grey or camel, these are the best colour combinations with green.
And if you’re wondering how you can incorporate Greenery into your life, get inspired by these styles and tips.
- The Perfect Green Dress
Choose a beautiful but playful green dress that is fun and flirty at the same time, for that girly vibe.
2. Wear With White
Green worn with white is fresh and crisp. Perfect for an Independence day party. Wear silver or gold accents for an elegantly rich appearance.
3. Choose Print
If you are not one to wear a solid green dress, start with a floral print dress in green.
4. Wear Green In Different Shades
Combine two tones of green for the perfect and classy head-to-toe look and you will definitely turn heads anywhere.
5. The Perfect Green Skirt
A green skirt can add drama to your outfit, particularly if you choose a skirt with some volume. Like the pleated skirt here would look good worn with white.
6. Green Accessories
If you are not sure you want to fully embrace the green trend, you could begin with accessories. Choose a pair of green shoes, green bag or earrings to wear with your existing outfits, this can give your whole outfit a totally new look.
