Kermit the frog may have said that it’s not easy being green. But, wearing green is a whole different story if these fabulous looks are anything to go by!

This is one color that all of the designers seem to agree on for Fall 2018.The fashion shows from Milan, Paris, New York and London, showcased a plethora of green, sending models down the runways in everything from bright neon, to bright primary play-doh green through to the darker, mossy-type greens we are used to seeing for Fall.

So, you’re sure to start seeing much more green appearing on the high street when the Fall collections hit. Investing in green now means you’ll be bang on trend when Autumn arrives! Here’s how some fabulous ladies wore the color, in some of my favorite green looks shared through the #40plusstyle Instagram tag. Don’t forget to share your own!


Here the jewel tones of purple add extra glamor to a polka dot skirt which could either be styled formally or casually. The circular shapes in the statement necklace pick up the polka dot shapes in the skirt.

Green is the color of nature, so it goes without saying that it pairs beautifully with florals. This look features bold blooms in both the dress and duster coat in a look which could clash, but which works wonderfully together.

This look was for a day out at the races, but would be equally suitable for occasions such as a summer wedding. Keeping the shoes and handbag neutral lets the dress stand out as the star of the show.

A bold color combination which many would shy away from, green and pink can work well together. I’ve seen everyone from Vogue fashion guru Anna Dello Russo to Queen Elizabeth II embrace green and pink. It’s also a combo which fashion house Moschino frequently puts together.
