Think green is only for St Patrick’s Day? Not so. Take your cue from Mother Nature and embrace this year’s freshest must-wear colour in every shade from rich emerald to softest sage
Last year, Bottega Veneta kickstarted the green love-in with its range of bold accessories. Since then, the green trend has spread like wildfire. A polka-dot dress is the perfect way to nail the look. Keep the rest of your colour palette simple with pared-back accessories such as these loafers, adding a gold-tone necklace for a chic finishing touch.
The right stripes
If wearing bold green from head to toe is out of your comfort zone, why not give a subtle nod to the trend with discreet green stripes? A clever update on the nautical theme, the green hue gives a fresh twist to this classic look. This gorgeously lightweight striped shirt will work for the office or weekends – team it with tailored shorts for an off-duty feel or wide-leg trousers for something a little smarter. If dresses are more your thing, a striped number is just what you need. Layer up with a bolder green hoodie.
It’s a cover-up
Another way to dip your toe into the trend is by pairing a softer shade of green with neutrals such as black and white or, alternatively, your favourite denim pieces. A stylish textured knit with on-trend collar detailing, this lightweight jumper is the perfect layering piece. It’s ideal for adding a pop of on-point green to elevate even the most low-key outfits; wear it with jeans and a striped T-shirt for a casual yet chic vibe.
