In recent times, the colour green has been taking centre stage on catwalks, with lime green, in particular, having a bit of a moment. Yet, it seems that all shades of green are gaining attention, making it the latest colour to be seen wearing.
Green is a cool and calming colour, but it can be tricky pairing it with other colours, especially if you’re new to wearing this tone. However, green is surprisingly versatile and actually blends well with many other shades, including the following six.
According to The Telegraph, the best colours to wear together are shades that are complementary of each other. In the world of colour, this means shades that are opposites. Red and green are opposites and, therefore, blend well together.
Deep reds work especially well when combined with green, and can be used in accessories, such as shoes or a belt.
Green and yellow make for happy bedfellows, and they’re the perfect choice to wear in spring. Opt for pale lemons and lime greens to keep shades simple, or turn the vibrancy up a notch or two with bright green and yellow for a striking combination.
If you don’t feel wholly comfortable in green or want to keep things low-key, pair green clothes with beige for a stylish look. In particular, a green maxi dress, such as an AX Paris green maxi dress teamed with a beige cardie or beige shoes will really get heads turning.
Putting green and pink together may initially raise eyebrows. But once you see these colours together you’ll be amaze at just how perfectly they gel. In fact, a pale pink shirt combined with green trousers. For examples, exudes a classic look that others will want to emulate.
For a fresh, summery vibe you can’t go wrong when mixing green and white. Whether you opt for a green t-shirt with white trousers, or a green maxi dress with white wedge sandals. You’re unlikely to make any faux pas when putting these two colours together.
If you want to wear green for a formal occasion, then a safe choice to team it with is the colour blue. Green and blue work well together at the best of times. But for a cool and sophisticated vibe, mix a green dress with a navy blue jacket.
