Green day

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

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.

DRESS CODE

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. Aritzia, aritzia.com | $128

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

DIVE

IN

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.
