GO GREEN: HOW TO ADD THE COMEBACK COLOUR TO YOUR WARDROBE THIS SEASON

June 14, 2014

Green is one of those colours that has a pretty bad reputation as being an unflattering colour, but is it true? The autumn/winter '14/'15 runways from Gucci, Balmain and Isabel Marant were awash with green in multiple shades and the colour worked. Whether khaki or jewel-toned green, the palette looked beautiful paired with burgundy, brown, cranberry and dark yellow. I especially loved the way it brought back a modern '70s flavour into little A-line skirts and coats or the military cool it evokes with black. It inspired me to have a little play with pieces available now to get a head start on the trend.

Culottes + green = two awesome new trends put together! I love the shape and elegance of culottes. Here, the burgundy  perfectly offsets the green while the tan pops the tones further.
