Green is a big colour for this season, but there are so many different shades of green, so here’s a quick video of me walking you through some of the greens you’ll find in the shops:-
Here’s a summary of the types of greens that will suit you depending on your colouring type too:
Light+Warm – the yellow-green and lighter warm shades, like sage and apple green will look lovely on you.
Light+Cool – the paler cooler yellows are great for you like mint and sea green, for example.
Deep+Warm – you’ll look lovely in the deeper and bolder shades of green, like the forest green Baukjen dress above. Deep khaki shades as well as bolder shades like kelly green and emerald green will also work.
Deep+Cool – the deep blue-based pine greens and true green shades will complement your deep and cool colouring perfectly.
Warm+Bright – green is a fabulous colour for you, so you’ll be able to wear most greens from the neutral khaki’s and olives to the bright limes and evergreens like the M&S dress above.
Warm+Smokey – green is a great staple colour for you, especially the softer toned varieties like moss and khaki. The Hush trousers above are a great example.
Cool+Bright – your green needs to have a blue undertone, so choose shades like pine or, for lighter shades, choose a mint or blue-green
Cool+Smokey – you’ll also suit the cooler green shades, so try a pine or sea green colour.
Bright+Warm – a bright warm green will look great on you – the M&S dress being a good example. Or create contrast by mixing lighter greens with your darker neutrals, like navy for example.
Bright+Cool – choose bold greens with a cooler undertone like blue-green for example, or again create contrast by say mixing a mint green with black or navy.
Smokey+Warm – the gentle shades like light moss, verbena, jade, and khaki will be particularly flattering for you. The Hush trousers and boots are great examples.
Smokey+Cool – choose the cooler toned greens that aren’t too bright. A sea green shade or sage will work well for you.
As I always say, why not delve into your wardrobe and start shopping your own wardrobe for green pieces. You’re bound to have things that you can perhaps put together in new ways to create new looks for the autumn/winter season.
If you’re not sure which colours suit you, maybe now is the time to book a colour consultation – either face-to-face or online. It honestly makes a huge difference to how healthy and vibrant you look. It also makes shopping so much easier too by lessening that feeling of overwhelm you can get when faced with too many choices. Once you know which colours suit you, it narrows down your choices plus makes it easier to create outfits as your colours will all go together.
