Is It Just Me Or Is Green Suddenly The Colour To Be Seen In?

If the host of show goers from the most recent fashion month isn't proof enough, let princess-in-the-making Meghan Markle have the final say on the matter.

Call it the influence of spring, call it a subconscious desire to want to replicate the calming effect of trees, call it the street style crowd’s search for the next colour that isn’t pink or lavender, but it seems like the unexpected colour that is starting to seep into the “hey, that could work” part of our brain is the colour green.

Emerald. Sea foam. Moss. Olive. Forest. Deep sea. What your ma calls it.

If you recall, the colour green – or rather some variation of it – was actually last year’s Pantone Colour of The Year, but it didn’t take off quite as well as rose quartz (i.e. millennial pink) did the year before. Still, given that pink anything is still running rampant, green is allowed to linger in the year that has thus far been claimed by the colour purple.

With the exception of darker and pastel greens, the colour isn’t the most palatable. You don’t associate it with someone who looks under the weather for no reason. Still, that hasn’t stopped the street style pack from experimenting with and absolutely nailing it. Case in point: all of the above.

The who’s who to have the final say on the matter? Meghan Markle in a green Self-Portrait dress. Like the power of Kate and Diana before her, when a royal lady does something, it is highly likely to become a thing. That very dress, for instance, is almost completely sold out.

Thing is, green is extremely malleable if you want it to be. Think less Kermit and more Keira Knightley in Atonement. With the right textures and shades, green can go from romantic to corporate to disco to island paradise to borrowed-from-the-boys to preppy. It truly is a colour that deserves to be raised up the pedestal – you just need to let it. The darker shades and olive are great places to start, but even we cannot deny the sheer brilliance that is this green Gucci jumpsuit.
