Going green in the eco-sense has been a trend for quite some time. Going green in the wardrobe sense is a bit newer to the scene and this shade was a prominent color fixture on this season’s runways. We saw army green at Chloé, mossy green at Louis Vuitton, glitzy green at Balmain, bright green at Lanvin, pale green at Malandrino, pretty green prints at Anna Sui, and many more fantastic interpretations of how to work this shade into your wardrobe.
Greens are more carefree and subdued than some of the other standout colors of this season- like powerhouse pink which is a bit more blatant- and can be tamed for a sleek, minimal style, or taken up a notch for a standout one.
The green trend goes beyond clothing, extending its fabulousness to shoes, bags, accessories, even makeup.
Check out some of my favorite green picks after the jump!

See by Chloe Strapless Zipper Dress, $395 . This stunning strapless dress is perfect for a summer soirée and would look even more fabulous with some standout accessories.
