FASH­ION’S FIX­A­TION WITH GREEN­ERY IS SURE TO SPRUCE UP YOUR AU­TUMN-WIN­TER WARDROBE IF YOU CHOOSE THE HUE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU

Warwick Daily News - - Weekend - WORDS: CHANTAY LO­GAN PHO­TOS: JERAD WILLIAMS

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 skin tone.

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 like these Saba cu­lottes.

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. Model: Cay­ley Scrooby, Chic
