It might be a summer of blues, but green is reigning as fashion’s favourite shade; mint, sage, jade, bright kelly green, the list goes on. Perhaps it’s a sign of times: More than ever, we’re yearning for one of nature’s most popular healing shades to give us hope and harmony.

Yes, green is the colour that is about to be everywhere. The key is to combine the hue with timeless neutrals for endless options (and endless envy). Take a look.

LOOK 1

Chances are you have a few neutrals stacked in your closet, whether from past seasons when you wore head-to-toe beige or simply because they are good keepers in your conscious wardrobe. Refresh those investment neutrals with an injection of eye-catching green as seen here with this beige cape/trench from COS mixed in with Anna Antal’s print leisure suit.

LOOK 2

Green is the colour synonymous with growth and new beginnings. Let’s start the new year with a positive green dress that will keep you looking undeniably bright. Otherwise ease in with a handbag or one that combines a summer basket and scarf in one.

LOOK 3

Colourful separates can be styled up or down depending on your mood. Take to light layering to break up a sea of green with a daily uniform blazer or cardigan. Of course, the easiest option is with a pair of bright strappy heels as seen here from Scanlan Theodore. The socks are optional but certainly add that extra degree of optimism.

LOOKS 4 & 5

You can’t go past a beautiful tropical print with hints of palm green partnered with another high-spirited shade of citrusy yellow. This one is particularly good for those of you who want to gradually move into colour while elevating your neutrals in new and unexpected ways. Ultimately, accessories are the easiest way to maximise your look. Take this Maggie Marilyn body scarf which can be worn as a sarong, head scarf or kerchief – the perfect summer must-have.
