How to wear the colour of the month: emerald green

7 March, 2022

Call it quetzal green, bottle green or emerald green: it is clear that this shade of dark green will be the star of the season.

In the short period of 2022 we have already seen how natural greens have taken over the street looks. Shades that convey freedom, fun and permissiveness. In fact, during the Copenhagen Fashion Week we have seen this tone in light and intense ranges and satin was the preferred choice for all of them. Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dolce & Gabanna are some of the designers who have embraced the energetic quetzal green in their collections.

Colours that work well with quetzal green

Its intensity makes quetzal green a great match for neutral and timeless colours. Your essentials in white, beige and black will go perfectly with this shade of green with bluish undertones. You can also try something new and come up with less predictable combinations. Here’s how to style the colour of spring 2022:

A delicate combo in emerald green and pink

Elegance and femininity: these two colours are the perfect match for any casual look. Our Personal Shoppers tip is to go for an openwork jumper in powder pink and a pleated midi skirt in emerald green. If you want to add a touch of freshness to your look, choose comfortable shoes, such as a pair of white ballerinas. A spring look you can’t go wrong with!

These two cool colours create a striking contrast. In between seasons, wear your ruffled bottle green blouse with red skinny jeans. Choose flat sandals or kitten heels and get a bold look for an evening out with friends.

Quetzal green and grey: the most elegant combo

These two elegant and sophisticated colours, when working in harmony, can elevate any look. Team a lightweight jumper that will stand up to the warmer spring temperatures in quetzal green with grey tailored trousers. Make this combination your go-to look for those days when you want to smarten up a bit but keep it simple. For an evening outfit, simply step into a pair of stilettos and add some red to your lips. Flawless!

How to wear your green must-haves

Winter garments are gradually being put to one side and new, lighter fabrics are making their way into our pre-spring looks. Take into account the tips from our Personal Shoppers to get your hands on these 3 trendy pieces that will help you create lighter looks this new season:

How to combine an emerald green dress

Green calls to nature, so nothing better than wearing it in an animal print. Take your wildest look into the night and combine this emerald dress with an oversized black blazer and matching bag with gold details. Throw on some heeled sandals or flats (if it’s going to be a long night), maxi earrings, and you’re ready to party!

How to combine a pair of bottle green trousers

Green trousers always work well in spring, especially when you’re going for a casual, safari-style vibe. Look for a pair of high-waist Bermuda shorts in bottle green and match them with a terracotta blouse. These two natural hues look great together. Either go casual with a pair of white trainers or get a more feminine and chic look by swapping them for sandals, also in white.

The key to wearing a quetzal green skirt in style

Finally, a very harmonious look. Yellow and green are closely related colours on the colour wheel, so they are perfect for creating looks with very flattering contrasts. For this spring season, choose a powdered yellow jumper and combine it with a wrap skirt in quetzal green.Add some espadrilles or loafers and a natural jute bag. With this look you’ll radiate good vibes under the sun.

A green for every woman

With green it is like with any other colour: to choose the right shade for you, the key is to play with hues and intensity.

If you are an Autumn woman, you will look best in a warm colour like khaki.

On the other hand, cooler shades of green, such as quetzal green or bottle green, look great on Winter women because of the contrast with their skin and hair.

If your colour scheme is Summer, i.e. you have light skin, eyes and hair, choose a pastel or greyish green.

Finally, if you identify with a Spring woman, usually with light eyes, freckles and blonde or red hair, you will look great with greens with bright shades.
