WEARING SHADES OF GREEN

WEARING SHADES OF GREEN

Green is so glorious that it represents luck and its variety of shades makes it such versatile palette and complimentary colour to wear. Of course, it takes a little style and finesse to wear green well without looking like a leprechaun or puke, but go forth with confidence. The many complimentary styling colours of green include, black, blue, brown and the unexpected orange.

For this look, I styled three shades of green with black. One key to not looking like a child’s colouring book is wearing shades of green closest to each other. This works better than bold stark contrasts, also using bold shades in accessories such as the print clutch bag helps. This golden green silk dress was actually a longer piece that I shortened the hem of. The t-shirt style of the dress makes it versatile enough to wear casual or dressy. With a small chill in the air, I decided to style the look with black tights.

A more lighter shade of a similar golden green was then layered over the dress with a gorgeous trench coat. Wearing it always takes me back to years ago when I purchased it as a sample piece from the designer Phyllis herself when she had just launched her label. Made from beautifully structured African fabric Ankara, the jacket adds a smart and unique finish that really dresses up the whole look.

    You look absolutely stunning. The colours look great on you and I think your we're right to make the dress shorter. I know you said you have doubts now and I didn't see the original but in these pictures, it looks great. Lovely outfit! http://www.hannahsfashionblog.com/

    I love the look from head to toe. I like how you pay attention to the details of your outfit (such as nails, hair earrings) in addition to having fabulous staple pieces (trench, clutch, shoes). Wonderful outfit, and great play with colors!
