How to add green to your wardrobe

How to... wear the color green

You don’t need the luck of the Irish to give you some green flair. From spring-green shoes to emerald-colored accessories, here are some of our favorite, and easiest, ways to incorporate green into your wardrobe.

Step 1: Know your green

If neutral colors rule your wardrobe, keep your choice of green in the same tone. If your fashion palette is wild and bold, keep it wild and bold. You don’t need to spend money on green items that you will only wear once. Instead, think of items you like to wear and explore those in greener shades.

Step 2: Accessories are necessities

The easiest, and often more affordable, way to incorporate green is to add a green accessory. Whether it's a green belt to go with your favorite jeans or a frilly green scarf to liven up a casual outfit, these one-item wonders will go far and aren’t overwhelming.

Step 3: Mint is green

We love the spring trend of pastel colors, and mint looks great on every skin tone and with every style. Consider investing in mint-colored items like a pair of mint skinnies, a minty blazer or even a pale green nail polish.

Step 4: Think toe to head

While a pair of green-framed sunglasses can be fabulous, be sure you take your whole outfit into account. Sometimes the best way to add a pop of green to your wardrobe is with clover-colored heels, sandals or flats. One of our favorite sandals is the green Erin Braided Sandal from Target for $15. And remember, don’t overdo it. A couple green items are enough for an outfit, but too much can make you look like a leprechaun. (Target, $15)
