Bleed Green CELEBERATE THE AZADI WEEK WITH STYLE


Issue Date 12 - 18 Aug, 2017 at 2:00 PM

Green is not only the colour of immortality, life and nature, the hue of opulence, rebirth and the universe, but is also special to us because it represents our national identity, our flag. One of the best things is that this colour family has so many shades varying in richness and class that it suits ladies of all complexions, hair and eye colour, and personal style. Incorporating green can kick up the style quotient of the dress and self-confidence of the wearer by a few notches. There aren’t any special tips on choosing the right green shade for oneself, except to keep the season in mind, yet there are many shades that work well all year round. Here are some of the different ways you can style yourself in green this week to celebrate the Independence week.

1. Head-to-toe solid green
The best way of standing out in the crowd with a bold green dress is to flaunt the shade from head to toe. A dress or a tunic, jeans or cropped trousers with a tee or a light chiffon blouse, both in different shades of green, would immediately get you noticed. Complement the clothes with green accessories, such as bright emerald green high heels or ballerina flats, a flirty handbag with big buckles, some oversized sunglasses or a wide-brimmed hat, and, of course, sparkling emerald earrings. This look would especially flatter brown-haired and brunette ladies.

2. Colour block the shade
Green looks amazing with almost any other colour. It makes a harmonious couple with the hues at the opposite end of the colour spectrum. Pair green with purple, red and orange to create the most impressive look. In all the cases, the symbolic glow of green will give your silhouette a touch of purity, energy and freshness. You can choose a green dress and finish off your look with red accessories, for instance, or go for the unmatchable combo of green and gold with a tiny gold clutch and stylish golden strappy sandals. Green also looks chic with all the neutral hues, including black, white, brown, camel, beige, gray, nude tones, as well as with burgundy, eclectic blue, bright yellow, metallics and pastel hues.

3. Green and earth go hand in hand
Green with beige (as well as with white and light gray) makes the clearest and calmest combination. For instance, you can pick green tights and wear them with a breezy white top, a thin brown belt and camel shoes. Or go for loose green pants paired with a cream blouse, brown bag and black shoes. Don’t forget emerald earrings to top it off. You can keep the blouse monochrome or printed in delicate polka dots, as well.

4. Pair green with jewel tones
This is a soft and light colour combination, which comes like a breath of fresh summer air. Think, for instance, a green flirty dress accessorised with a pale blue bag, blue bracelets and green high heels. This outfit is ideal for a romantic date or for an evening party. All the jewel tones look astounding together; the combination of deep green and fuchsia or that of emerald green and eclectic blue looks like a dream. Go for a green dress of your choice and finish it off with a fuchsia clutch and scarf and golden shoes and jewellery.

5. Have a floral party
Nature is the best designer, it never makes mistakes. Look around and draw inspiration from the flowers and plants: bright and beautiful flowers always look amazing with the lush greenery. This is a royal combo. From pale pinks to juicy fuchsias, pink tones look amazing with the colour. Opt for a romantic floral printed blouse, a pair of blue jeans and an emerald bag, for instance. Combine a pair of lovely crimson trousers and a green bag with pastel pink touches. The combination of a soft purple blouse, a bright skirt and an emerald clutch is also a striking one. Play with floral prints, various shades of pink and green and you’ll be a real winner.

6. Create a hot mood board
Besides the classic pair of green and red, this opulent colour looks amazing also with orange, creating a crazy summer mood. For instance, choose a deep green outfit and finish it off with fiery orange shoes and accessories. You can also try the combination vice versa.

7. The classic green-on-green
If you aren’t into eye-popping colours and prefer neutral clothes, you can liven up your look by opting for emerald green accessories. For instance, a white dress finished off with emerald green shoes, emerald earrings and bracelets and a golden clutch will look incredible. Whether it’s a gray, black, cream, beige or brown outfit, emerald green embellishments can instantly balance any look and make you appear trendy.
