Rich, earthy and symbolising balance, green is a gorgeous addition to any fashionista’s wardrobe. If you’ve never dared to wear it, now’s the perfect time to try. Check out our tips below on how to rock the shade, plus our hottest fashion picks from RCS stores across SA.

 

LIME UP!

The great thing about green is that there’s such a variety of shades to choose from, you’re almost guaranteed to find a hue that suits you. And it’s not just about pairing it with your skin and hair tone – it’s about finding the right match for your personality too.

Are you the life and soul of the party? Go all out in vibrant emeralds and jades (or lime if you’re feeling particularly bold). If you prefer to keep things toned down, slip into more understated olives and khakis. You’re spoilt for choice at RCS stores, where you can find everything from hats and shirts to shoes in shades that are perfectly you. We adore this knitted top (R300) paired with an ultra-cool leather skirt (R799), both from Forever 21.

 

 

HAT TRICKS

You don’t have to go head to toe in green to rock the shade. In fact, stylists recommend you pick one statement item in the shade and pair it with a more neutral tone. Think dark greens and beige, or clover greens and black.

And of course, you have one powerful secret weapon at your disposal: accessories! Hats, scarves and bags are a great way to test-drive a new shade without committing to an entire wardrobe. We love this scarf from Poetry (R150) and beaded cuff from Foschini (R79). Feeling a little braver? Rock a fabulous felt hat from Forever 21 (R599), or splurge on a Dune handbag in gorgeous dusty green (R1 400).
