How to Style Green for Spring/Summer

Green is one of those colours that I feel really split opinions when it comes to styling it into your wardrobe. As a keen lover of the colour, I wanted to share a few of my thoughts on wearing it this Spring/Summer. I’ve always been a fan of the colour but I have to admit that I don’t wear it enough. I’m therefore challenging myself to integrate it into my wardrobe more over the next month or so. If you’re reading this and thinking green is NOT you colour, just give me a few minutes to try and change your mind. Who knows, maybe you’ll be surprised!

Go Subtle with Accessories

When you think of styling up a colour your automatic thought is what clothing you can get. But you haven’t got to go straight in with a bold piece of clothing. Why not opt for a subtle bit of jewellery? I’m pretty lucky that my birth stone is actually a peridot, so finding myself green jewellery is easy. My first idea, therefore, is to add a pop of green in your jewellery. This necklace from Statement Made Jewellery*  is the perfect way to do it.

If you’ve ever read any of my accessories posts in the past you’ll know that I usually go for a fairly bold piece of jewellery. However, layering up subtler pieces is also a favourite style of mine. This necklace from Statement Made Jewellery is ideal for layering up or as a standalone piece too.

Beauty

Another more minimalist way to adapt green into your wardrobe is through a bit of beauty product. A classic way that I wear green is on my nails. I love a darker, olive green shade on my nails as it has a sophistication to it. Olive green is an all time favourite colour of mine so getting to wear it is always a treat for me.

Knitwear

The British Spring and Summertime is definitely changeable when it comes to its climate. One minute you’ll be out in the glorious sun in your favourite summer dress. The next, the clouds will come and the temperature will quickly cool down. A green jumper could be a great way to get colour in your wardrobe. One of my favourite looks is a midi dress with a jumper over the top. I just think it adds something different to your outfit and doubles your dress as a skirt! Plus, you can choose whether you want to wear it or not throughout the day and just roll it up in your bag, or around your waist. My go-to is my American Apparel dark green jumper that I’ve had for years. I think I had it back when I was in school about 5 years ago!

    

Outerwear

I couldn’t write a post about my love of green without featuring some of my favourite outerwear. You’ll already know all about my prized possession; my green leather coat. But, of course that isn’t ideal for the Spring/Summer at all. My olive green mac however, is perfect. I featured it back in my post all about Einstein Bier Haus (a favourite spot of mine back home in Liverpool). And I’m featuring it again here because why the hell not, ey?

What are some of your favourite ways to wear green? Are you a fan of the colour or would you rather give it a miss? Have I managed to convince any of you to give it a go? Let me know in the comments.

    The coat & the jumper are just the types of green that I’d pop on myself!! Such a classy look, and the necklace is gorgeous as well x

    Love that necklace, it’s so pretty! Also that coat is gorgeous, you styled that outfit really well 🙂 I don’t often wear green thinking about it, although I do have a long top that I bought last year ready for the warmer months so I’ll make sure I wear it because it is a gorgeous colour. Thanks for reminding me about it!

    I love Statement Made Jewellery, they have some really unique pieces! I love the colour green. I had red hair for years and thought the two colours went together so well, I now have a whole wardrobe of green clothes and accessories. xxx

      Red hair and green clothing is such a gorgeous combination! I love the fact that my birthstone is green – even more of an excuse to wear the colour x

    I love the colour green. It’s one of my favourite colours to wear, that is when I find a shade I like! I have green eyes, so I like using green to make my eyes stand out. I love your coat too – it goes really well with your outfit and is a really nice colour on you!

      I love the idea of using green to make your eyes stand out! I have two different coloured eyes (blue and green) so it’s always fun to experiment with different colours to bring them out 🙂 x

    These are some great ideas. I usually wear a touch of green in my accessories as my birth stone is emerald. Along with a khaki green cardigan. But I haven’t ventured much further than those two; some green jumpers would be a great addition.
