IT’S EASY BE­ING GREEN

HOW TO MAS­TER THIS SEA­SON’S COOLEST FASH­ION TREND

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - FRONT PAGE - W O R D S : C H A N TAY LO­GAN

It’s not that easy be­ing green, as ev­ery­one’s favourite frog was fond of lament­ing. Yet, with gor­geous gar­ment green­ery grow­ing on shelves, there’s never been a bet­ter time to join the jade brigade.

The trick to pulling off au­tumn’s state­ment hue is in choos­ing a shade that suits your skin­tone.

Deep for­est green is the flat­terer of the fam­ily and uni­ver­sally be­com­ing.

If your skin has cool un­der­tones, you’ll look best in a blue-based teal, while warm un­der­tones work bet­ter with yel­low-based moss-like shades.

Pure jewel tones make the strong­est state­ment, but you don’t have to com­mit to a block colour.

De­sign­ers are ex­plor­ing darkly ex­otic flow­ers and pre­cious plants for print in­spi­ra­tion, per­fect for pair­ing with mid­night sta­ples.

Gold jew­ellery is the clas­sic com­ple­ment, but con­sider pa­tent or metal­lic boots to add a mod­ern edge to silky cock­tail num­bers.

Don’t be afraid to play with power colours, con­trast­ing jewel greens with equally bold ac­ces­sories.
