The hue’s so hot that at least five shades of it swept the runways recently. Make a statement in brights like emerald, or give new classics like moss or dark teal the (hur hur) green light.
3.1 Phillip Lim
On roomy suits or dresses, and freshest when paired with bright accents of red, blue, yellow or purple.
THE NEW DRAWSTRING BAG
Did you know that fabric drawstring bags were the choice accessory of women in the 14th century? Fast-forward to 2016, and the modern-day versions come in slouchy leather, with lots of ruching. Although most sport handles or shoulder straps, the coolest way to carry them is more eﬀortlessly chic – hold them by the neck and think of them as your grab-and-go daytime pouches or wristlets.
Michael Kors Collection
Think of it as your alternative to navy. We’d wear teal on oﬃce-ready shifts and cocktail dresses, and with black or yellow.
Yes, it looks sharp on military-tinged parkas and coats. But it also looks oh-so-sexy on miniskirts and mesh tops. If in doubt, the shade always looks great paired with beige or purple.
Pretty isn’t the word that springs to mind for this shade, but the new mossy green looks are precisely that. Just look at the silky finishes, embellishments, bows and feathers. Best with soft neutrals like grey, nude and white.
Yellowish green has never been easy to pull oﬀ, but it’s now on modern, desirable tailored jackets and leather pieces. It’s also teamed with lots of black and white, and futuristic details like studs and metal hardware.
