How to Wear Green Well

Post by Taislany Gomes • March 14, 2022 • Other

Green is one of the boldest, brightest colours, so wearing it is a great way to make a statement, but it is its boldness that outs a lot of people off ever wearing it at all.

If you want to make a statement by wearing something green and lovely, but you want to avoid any fashion disaster and ensure you look good, check out my guide to wearing green well:

1. Wear it with neutral colours

Wearing green from head to toe is totally doable, but if you aren’t used to wearing the shade, you could end up looking more Robin Hood than pretty good, but of course, wearing green with other colours can also result in an embarrassing clash.

The good news is, you can use a colour wheel to identify complementary colours that look good together, or can you? Usually, this works fine, but when it comes to green, its complementary shade of red can give off a distinct Christmas vibe! That means if you don’t want to wear green from head to toe, and you don’t want to clash, then you’re going to want to stick to blacks, browns and greys alongside your green.

2. Pair it with florals

If you do want to wear a block of green, perhaps because it’s St. Patrick’s day which is celebrated around the world by wearing green, then a really good way to look less like a Merry Man and more like a fashionable woman about town is to pair your green with floral accessories. You can ignore the colour clash here and safely wear a bright green dress with floral pumps or a spring green jumpsuit with a red and yellow floral bag. In fact, this is the best way to wear green in Spring.

3. Analogous colours may work too

Complementary colours and green may not be a good match, but you might find that using analogous colours helps to bring your look together. Analogous colours are colours that are adjacent to each other on the colour wheel. When combined, they tend to balance out a look and make it less in your face.

So, what are green’s analogous colours? Yellow and blue. So, you could wear, for example, a green sweater with blue jeans and yellow pumps or a green dress with a blue belt and a yellow bag and it would look great, and provide you with a more quirky option than if you were to wear your greens with neutral colours.

4. Black and gold accessories

If you want your green outfit to look a bit more stylish and sophisticated, then you casn’t go wrong by pairing it with black shoes and gold accessories. This combination not only looks great together, but it helps to lend a sophisticated, serious note to green which can often seem like more fun and frivolous colour.

I hope these tips help you to embrace more colour in your wardrobe, give green a go and look even more fabulous than you already do! It’s time to go green.
