“Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it. ” -Johann Wolfgang on Goethe
I only became a fan of green a few years ago. I grew up without anything green in my wardrobe as it was my mother’s least favourite colour. Over the years however, jade and emerald have lured me into becoming their friends, especially after Karl Lagerfeld brought the colour back into the fashion spotlight through his jade jewelry. The stylish ladies below bring ”it’s chic to be green’ to a whole new level.
The quilted Balenciaga bag aside, that green cardigan is very catchy, but so is her fluffy leather jacket.
I would be laughing too if I carried a Birkin and had her dress! How amazing is the geometric print! Her dress reminds me of the funky label Antik Batik and her sandals reflect the orange lines of her dress beautifully.
OK, her sandals are probably the best feature, but her floral skirt is stunning too. Simple and chic.
So achingly elegant in this emerald silk dress, plus her red lips-a match made in heaven.
I think Karla (Karla’s Closet) is wearing Animalia Alexander McQueen heels, but it is her turquoise blazer that caught my eye.
Now here is a lady I would love to meet one day – Natalie Massnet, the founder and director of the ultimate online designer destination Net-A-Porter. I love the olive cardigan and Fendi belt her friend is wearing!
Who would have thought that a frumpy green cardigan with a cape attached to it would be so hip on. Together with those two-toned heels, she looks like she could take on the world!
This post is dedicated to Jo (it’s her favourite colour), who is making me green with envy as she is travelling around Europe.
