We first started seeing green last season, where some of the pieces of Fall/Winter collections were in a shade of bottle green, which seemed like the ideal non-glittery but still lustrous enough for evening wear and holiday celebrations. Now though, it’s Spring and a lot of what we’ve been adding to our carts and bookmarking on Instagram seems to follow that green trend – but this time the shade is identified as a bold jade or emerald.
Fact is, we tend to reach for light tones with a pinch of floral as soon as the warm weather graces our cities, but we so often overlook other colours that fit right into the season, without necessarily being a dark shade. Thus, we’ve made it an effort for the past weeks to purchase pieces in more flamboyant tones such as burnt orange, dark emerald and red to give us a push into avoiding to wear a full white outfit or a cream sweater paired with a pair of light wash jeans. What’s better, most pieces we’re eyeing can either be worn with a more neutral combining piece, or as a monochromatic look with a matching top or bottom. Either way, dressing will become simpler and all you’ll be left with is adding a touch of accessories or classic gold hoops.
At first glance, especially if you’re naturally not too keen on introducing colours to your wardrobe or prefer to play the safe card by opting for your no-fail outfits, it might be a tough start. But you’ll soon realize that a satin dress or wrap skirt will instantly elevate your look and will work as well during the day, worn with a white button down, as for date night with your S.O.
Below we’ve rounded up our newest arrivals, ranging from jade-coloured matching crop top and skirt, to more subtle pieces like this striped shirt by rTa. On top of this dress and this one-shoulder satin number which are both foolproof wedding guests looks, and we say *extra points* if a dress can be both daytime work appropriate and night-time whether date night or girls catch-up with a simple change of shoes.
