Shade to Crave: Gorgeous Green


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!

Anna Sui Allover Sun Faces Dress, $539; NOW: $377.50. This dress summons the seventies but has an undeniable modern edge. It’s also one of those pieces that can easily work year round. Sigh, I think I’m in love.

I agree. This is a really great post. Love how green is presented as something for everyone, rather than a shade avoided by many.
