Making Trends Work For You – How to Wear Green

Each season different colours take centre stage and for Autumn/Winter 2018 we’re going GREEN.

The perfect shade for Autumnal weather, the key to embracing this trend is to choose YOUR GREEN and wear it in a way that complements your colour characteristics.

Here are our guidelines to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe for the season ahead…


For those of you who fall into the LIGHT colour category Autumn/Winter can be a harder time to get hold of the delicate, bright shades that make up the majority of your colour palette. Avoid the dark, rich greens that you’ll see in abundance at the moment and instead opt for Apple, Mint or Turquoise. Rather than teaming these with Black which is too harsh for your delicate colouring, consider a lighter neutral such as Stone, Pewter or  Light Navy.


Deep, rich colours look beautiful on you so a darker green like Pine will work beautifully on you.  Team with Dark Navy, Damson or Browns (another key colour trend this season). A statement coat in a gorgeous green will be the perfect addition to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.


There are so many colours that will work for you in the shops this season. When it comes to shades of green try Olive as your neutral. It can be combined with with Mustard, Bronze, Amber or even Terracotta for a gorgeously cosy, Autumnal look.


The key for you COOL customers is to opt for a shade of green with plenty of blue tones running through it; nothing too ‘warm’ (yellow-based). Remember, this doesn’t have to be an all-over look, Cassis and Purple look gorgeous accessorised with Teal or Spruce for a subtle nod to this colour trend.


Contrast and vibrancy are key for you when choosing and wearing your colours. Fern and Emerald Turquoise both look gorgeous worn alone to enhance the sparkle in your eyes, or try mixing them with Black Brown to create an Autumnal feel to your look. Add contrast to your look with a dash of white if you have cool undertones or ivory if you have warm undertones.


A tonal look works well for you so try blending different shades of Green in one look. There are many different options for bottom halves in the shops this season, try Spruce or Olive trousers or jeans worn with Greyed Green tones on your top-half for example. Finish with mid-toned accessories in colours such as Pewter or Tan as very dark shades like Black don’t work so well with your colouring.
