How to wear green: Autumn’s most underrated color

Some tips on how you can subtly incorporate green to your looks this season

Published

on

Despite everything I see on fashion editorials and on my feed, it’s always this time of the year when I become obsessed with green.  When I think of fall, colors of rustic countryside and foliage come to mind. I imagine deep but vibrant hues — earth tones like rust, mustard, a deep red, and the entire brown spectrum.

This is why there’s no more perfect time to add green pieces to your looks than during autumn to winter — it’s not anyone’s go-to. Here are some tips on how you can subtly incorporate green to your looks this season:

Play it safe with olive

If emerald green is too much for you to pull off, start with moss, olive, or army green first. It’s almost like wearing a neutral but it still adds a hint of color to your outfit. A parka in this color is an easy choice that will go well with a lot of casual outfits. For when you want to look a little bit more dressed up, try wearing a mini bag in this shade.

The girl in the green scarf

Adding a splash of color to a neutral outfit with accessories is the easiest trick to pull off on anyone’s styling book. Make a green accessory the focal point of an otherwise ordinary everyday look. If you have a signature styling item, get it in an emerald green color. I’ve been obsessing over silky scarves lately. I wear them with my ponytail, as a headband, or on my purse.

New phone, new color

If you’re due for a smartphone upgrade, get a new color option instead of black. A lot of smartphones this year come in a new shade of green, including the new iPhone 11 Pro. Like a statement necklace, it can be a great focal point for your outfit. When there’s already too much going on with your look and you’re not confident enough to pull off color blocking, it’s best to cover it up with a neutral case that matches your purse and shoes.

Go green, all-green

Here’s yet another tonal dressing suggestion. While I love an all-nude look to stand out in a sea of tans and blacks this season, all-green is my next go-to — and it’s probably my favorite. It’s what started my love affair with tonal dressing to begin with. An all-green outfit is not as feminine as nude, but it’s just sophisticated. It’s not as much of a statement as wearing red from head to toe, but it will stand out just as much in a sea of blacks and tans.

Green was never something I would wear growing up; my teenager self never saw it to be flattering or versatile. Age changed that. It’s still a tricky color to wear — especially the bolder, more vibrant shades — but when styled right, it can be the most polished look you’ve pulled off in a long time.

The modern woman is preoccupied with a lot of things: work, spending quality time with family and friends, learning new skills, self-care, maybe even finding romance. She has a lot going on, so what she needs in life are tools that help her just be who she is.

When it comes to smartphones, the Huawei Nova 5T is a phone she can rely on. With its super fast fingerprint unlock and 8GB of memory, she won’t need to do any more waiting than she already does in her day to day.

Having 128GB of storage, she can take as many photos and videos as she wants. And the flagship Kirin 980 processor assures her that she can do anything she ought to do and multitask like the career woman that she is. No compromises here.

Who says a girl needs an Instagram boyfriend? The 32MP selfie camera on the Huawei Nova 5T lets her take wide-angle and beautiful selfies and outfit shots all on her own, without having to rely on anyone else. And those cameras at the back give her professional-like photos, too. No more boring photos.

The modern woman hustles and stays connected and the Nova 5T can stay on with her for for as long as she needs it to be. When it runs out of juice, it gets up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
