Fabulous! Isn t it great to see all that green! Thank you so much for the feature!

Wonderful pictures! I am excited that a vibrant green, a flattering color for me, is the new shade for spring. I have a green cropped cardigan to pair with black, white, black and white, navy and denim pieces. I love the bright green shirt, belted jacket and lace skirt in this Instagram group. Lots of inspiration.

I adore green. This new pantone green is better the the previous one which was more like a teal or petrol. Both not good on me. I love deep darker green, a jewel tone with some brightness in it. This greenery is a bit too flat, too light but I won’t complain as I am happy green is in.
Lovely examples in your line-up.

The specific shade green can make or break your look. You MUST know your color type (spring, summer, autumn or winter for example). Green is a mix of blue (cool) and yellow (warm). You need to know which side you are on. Emerald, kelly, and moss for example, are not the same shade and are not interchangeable.

Great photos! Thanks for the inclusion!

Great variety of greens! Since I have reddish hair, green is one of my more flattering choices of bright colour. I have an emerald green wool suit, about 30 yrs old, that seems to keep coming back in style (the shade, anyway). Teal or blue-green, forest and lime are my favourite greens. Yellowy or browny greens remind me too much of the 1970s!

7 Suzanne

I love seeing all this green inspiration…so many ways to wear this versatile color of the year! Thank you for including me in the round-up with all of these fashionable ladies!

Green is my favorite color. I treasure a set of green plates inherited from my great-grandmother. The examples you showed were a treat. Pantone’s color for 2017, Greenery, is a beautiful shade to wear as well as use as an accent color in interiors, especially with neutrals. Shortly, my blog will feature more on green, including the positive and negative psychological aspects which I have researched.
BTW, the recent post on comfortable/stylish shoes was so helpful. I recommend Vionic brand boots highly because at the end of the day you will not feel like “kicking them off into the fire” as one of your audience so colorfully described uncomfortable shoes.
