How To Wear Green With Style
Mid-Summer’s Colour: Green
As we head towards mid-Summer, I’m still on the theme of Dressing In The City Heat.
And this time I’ve looked to Nature for my colour palette and how to wear green.
If you fancy a change from the ‘traditional’ Summer colours of sky blue and white or a move away from tropical colours of sunset red and burnt orange, then read on…
Nature gives us so many greens from the palest slivers of cucumber to the warm acidity of lime, murky khaki and the dark forest greens of spruce and pine.
CWC style tip: Choose the right greens and combinations for your complexion.
Just as everyone can wear red, so can everyone wear green.
And like red, you need to be sure you’re wearing the right green for You.
It’s one thing deciding which green to wear.
It’s another to know how to combine your chosen green with another colour or colours.
If you know this information, you’re onto a winning combination.
And the chances are, you probably know how to wear a colour which isn’t the best choice to flatter your skin tone.
