WARDROBE MAL­FUNC­TION WITH Alexis

QWHAT COLOURS CAN I WEAR WITH MIL­I­TARY GREEN TO A MORE FOR­MAL OC­CA­SION?

AThe colours that best com­ple­ment mil­i­tary green are black, brown, mus­tard and bur­gundy. Try not to mix prints. If one is a mono colour, the other should be a print, but not both. For darker skin, al­ways break the green with a lighter colour and not a dark one such as black. For lighter skin, the op­po­site ap­plies. For ac­ces­sories, go as bright as you want as mil­i­tary green is a dull colour and needs bright colours such as gold, sil­ver or yel­low to brighten it up. But avoid bright shoes as they will clash with the ac­ces­sories. Rather go for black or brown. When go­ing to a for­mal event, avoid mil­i­tary green as it may be re­garded as too ca­sual.
