How To Rock: Green

- By Stacy Igel -

Over the last several years, “green” has come to be – no longer foremost a color; a way to describe grass, the leaves on a tree, or even your military inspired coat – but a way of life; eco-responsibllity and the use sustainable practices. Fashion, however, has come to reclaim green for Fall 2012.  Parlaying off of spring’s all-encompassing mint trend,  green now takes on a deeper and richer tone.  Think Emerald, Olive, and Moss, done in sumptuous fabrics, prints and embellishments, seen at Lanvin, Tibi, Rebecca Minkoff, and Gucci.
-
The biggest way to incorporate this trend is to go monochromatic; the deep tones are almost universally flattering.  Layering hints of green is a fresh way to make note of it, and looks especially on trend paired with anything burgundy – another of Fall’s biggest color trend.  For the more reserved, balance your nod to green with neutral colors – just be sure to keep within the same warm tones.
-
With the power of accessories, green can take on the role of a go-with-everything basic, or a statment-making pop of color.  Switch your black, brown, and tan handbags and flats for shades of Forrest, Hunter, or Avocado.  As the mercury falls, bundle up in Pine, Fern, and Kelly toned scarves, hats and gloves.  Spice up your little black dress with an emerald embellished shoe or clutch.
-
The jewelry is, of course, the easiest way to go green. They can be subtle, almost hidden touches, or can be the center of your look.  Emerald jewelry, either in the literal stone or in colored pieces, compliments gold with perfection, each highlighting each other naturally.
