Five stylish ways to wear green

From military green to gold mix

Green means getting the florals on display for spring and summer, and it’s a versatile colour that you can wear with just about everything. There are so many different shades to work, from a warm lime to a cool olive, but it’s important to choose a complementary colour and one that will suit your skin tone and hair colour.

If you still feel the chills of winter, a lightweight parka in green can enhance an outfit. It can be teamed with jeans or a casual skirt. This essential layer will protect against the elements, and some have a modern fishtail shape, while others have a military print. As an alternative, a US bomber-style jacket also follows the military green style.

A darker green can be mixed with black and gold to create either a sophisticated or sporty casual look. If you want to dress up and turn heads, there are plenty of fashionable summer dresses, tea dresses and even ballgowns or culottes. Light green and gold can create a fashionable vintage style, and accessorising it with jewellery can finish the look.

Try a chunky knitted sweater for cool summer evenings

Green is a great choice for knitwear and it’s easy for both men and women to incorporate an olive colour into an ensemble. It’s easy to mix and match with its retro vibe and earthy tones. A chunky knit sweater can be worn on summer evenings and it can be teamed with brogues for men, or stylish pumps for women.

With summer creeping in already it’s time to get your wardrobe organised and a style idea for the warm weather is a versatile green maxi dress. The AX Paris green maxi dress will keep you cool and it will ensure you look stylish no matter the occasion. According to all eyes were on style icon Olivia Wilde who owned the red carpet in a dazzling green couture gown at a Los Angeles event.

And don’t forget the power of pastel green which gives a more summery, casual look, especially if you team it with trainers or low heels and jeans. You can have fun with green, without looking like a St Patrick’s Day leprechaun. If you don’t own anything green, now’s the time to gather those greens together and get inspired.
