Green with Envy

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a fantastic and relaxing weekend! I thought I was going to get some time to relax, unfortunately that did not eventuate as I was busy as a bee, spending the whole weekend rushing from place to place! On a more exciting note, last week, I welcomed the newest colourful member to join my pants family. This family is currently undergoing rapid expansion in preparation for winter, and I am delighted to have found a green pair to add to the current repertoire. I love the beautiful shade of crisp kelly green, making it almost impossible not spot her from a mile =). She is well structured, finely tailored, and the material is quite polished. The search for a pair of well fitted and flattering pants never stops. You know it's a keeper when you find one that also displays some strong colour personality!

I love adding bit of green to what I wear, from hunter green to mint, to lime; I think they are full of life! Green is closely associated with growth, recovery and rejuvenation. To me, it's a very safe colour and reminds me of youth, which is something we all like to be linked to =)

In case you are wondering what to wear with green pants, here are some of suggestions:
  1. If you are not too adventurous, I would go with the darker shades of green (e.g., hunter green, olive green and forrest green). These shades are perfectly versatile in pairing. If you are keen to try some brights, experiment first with smaller pieces such as accessories
  2. In general, safe options to pair with green are neutral colours (e.g., navy, white, black, grey and cream/ivory)
  3. I would probably avoid pairing green with too much red (so we don't become a Christmas nightmare) or brown (so there's no chance of being mistaken as a tree) =P
  4. Depending on the shade of your green, you can kick up a notch and pair your green items with some fresh coral pink. Of course, soft pink will also work, and particularly well with darker shades of green
  5. I personally find patterned tops can go well with the green pants too (I paired my green pants with a classic houndstooth patterned short coat).

When winter knocks on our doors, we don't need to stay in doors and hibernate. Put on your best pair of sharp green pants and go out for a stroll in the park. You are sure to bring some life, energy and colour to your surroundings!
