We all have that favourite colour we love to wear. However, very few people know that the colour they wear says a lot about their personality, mood and emotions. You may not be aware of the symbolic meanings associated with different colours but at the subconscious level, there is a reason why you’re attracted to particular colours.
Green is said to symbolise life, renewal and health. It is associated with balance, calmness and harmony. When we think of green outfits, for the most part, we think of nature and this evokes a feeling of peace and contentment. So if you’ve been wearing a lot of greens lately, you very well could be feeling really at peace and content with the way things are going in your life.
If you’re one who’s usually not drawn to green hues, we’re going to give you enough reasons to literally go green with envy. Green is such a versatile colour and that one term isn’t even enough to describe the full range of the tones that make up the colour green. However, with such a rich range of hues – from bright greens and emerald tones to olive, khaki and forest greens – chances are there is one that will suit your personality and style preferences. The trick is figuring out which shade is right for you then mixing and matching the same with the rest of your wardrobe accordingly.
Green outfits are often considered a challenging shade to wear and this probably comes down to the fact that it doesn’t scream ‘femininity’ like some other colours. However, green can be seriously sophisticated and certainly feminine when worn well and paired with more feminine colours like pink and peach.
If you know your colour wheel, then styling green outfits will come very easy to you. Green can be paired with neutral colours such as white, navy, beige, grey or black. For bolder looks, pair with shades of yellow, pink, blue, gold, red and purple and you’ll see the resulting Rave!
The key to styling your green outfit is to first determine the shade of green you’re working with, then pair it with brighter or darker tones in a way that contrasts the shade of green serving as your canvas.
