While green on our plates has always been considered a plus, the colour is slowly making its way into our wardrobes and we’re totally here for it. Often overlooked when it comes to colours in style, green is the choice of hue this season, if these celebrity OOTDs are anything to go by.
Katrina Kaif spent her Saturday wearing a bright green and white striped dress, while Janhvi Kapoor recently stepped out in a gorgeous pastel green sari that we’re already eyeing for the Summer weddings we have to attend. You can follow our expert guide to going green by making your wardobe sustainable and stylish at the same time, and you can read on to find out how you can also take that a bit too literally and make your closet more verdant.
So bring out your notebooks and prepare to take copious notes, because class is in session on how to wear green like a celebrity this season…
You can’t go wrong with pastels
There’s nothing like a good pastel green outfit to beat the Summer heat while looking like a million bucks. It’s a universally flattering shade that is neither too bold to be considered risky, nor too dull to be boring. Take cues from Janhvi Kapoor in this Anita Dongre sari.
Go bold with the jewel tones
Give your little black dress a break the next time you go out and opt for a deep green instead. The stunning colour looks great on all skin tones and is a fun way to break the monotany every once in a while. Malaika Arora shows a great way to do it in her Alina Anwar sequinned dress.
Monochrome separates always make a statement
Co-ord separates in one hue are always a good way to make a statement, as Nimrat Kaur proves in this Kanika Goyal pantsuit. You can play around with prints to off-set the bold effect of one solid colour in your whole outfit, if you want.
Keep it cool with a mint hue
A mint green outfit is a perfect way to make sure you’re on-trend without stewing in the hot, Summer sun. It’s the perfect alternative to tried-and-tested hues if you’re going to a wedding too. Aditi Rao Hydari wears the non-traditional hue in her Raw Mango gharara set.
Play with patterns
If you’re not too sure about going all the way with an all-green outfit, you can play around with patterns like Katrina Kaif did with her striped green Jacquemus dress, and wear the colour this season.
Pair it with neutral tones
Lean into the whole nature aspect of the colour and pair it with earth tones to keep the look understated yet glamorous. Ananya Panday showcases this with her sexy Groot cosplay outfit.
Add pops of neon to keep everything interesting
Neon green can be a tricky hue to pull off. If you’re on the fence about going green with your style and potentially end up looking like a particularly tall highlighter, then add pops of neon green to your outfit to play around with the colour. Take Deepika Padukone and her black and neon green outfit for inspiration.
