Blame it on spring, but suddenly, we feel like wearing green all the time. And the thing is, not only does it look great on screen, but there’s a shade for everyone — the trick is to find the one that suits your skin tone. Moss green, lime green, olive green, Kelly green: whatever the green, we’re into it. From tops to bottoms (including shoes), Rebecca Tay presents five green styles to try right now.
As the weather warms up, we’re turning to spring dresses to give our wardrobes a lift. This ‘Sidonie’ mini style by Wilfred is sweet and pretty, thanks to its ruffled hem and shoulders, but it’s also supremely easy to wear, with a forgiving, flattering shape and sage green hue that suits almost every skin tone.

OFF THE CUFF
Every wardrobe needs a pair of trousers that are both smart enough for Monday morning and casual enough for Sunday, too. Enter these cropped chinos, which come in this lovely, soft green (a shade called aloe), as well as classic khaki and dark graphite. Wear with a white shirt and loafers for work, or sandals and a tee for the weekend. Club Monaco, clubmonaco.com | $159.50
Maybe you’ve already dipped a toe in the water, but if not, it doesn’t feel like too long now until we’ll be able to dream about lying on the beach and swimming in the ocean again. Get in the mood with this one-piece, recycled polyamide swimsuit by Ganni, featuring a swirly green ‘island’ print that’s also available on a pair of shorts and a maxi dress. Nouvelle Nouvelle, nouvellenouvelle.com | $245
TO A TEE
There’s no easier dress shape than a T-shirt dress: it’s our go-to when we have five minutes between getting out of bed and our first video call of the day, or when we need to pop out to the corner store for a treat. This long-sleeved, striped pastel green version looks great with a wicker bag and white sneakers or slides.

GET YOUR KICKS ON
We’ve always been fans of CDG Play, the fun, sister line by Comme des Garçons known for its signature heart-andeyes logo. This spring, its continuing collab with Converse includes the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 sneaker in new shades such as this highlighter green; they’re a surefire way to add a peppy punch to any old jeans-and-tshirt combo.
