Pastels seem to be the perennial go-to choice when it comes to gently incorporating color into our spring wardrobes (we get it—it’s been a long, long winter), but the heroes this season are the bright and the bold.
Schoolyard, Crayola-inspired hues like orange, yellow, and green (yes, green!) are the ones to watch. Just look at the spring runways of Marc Jacobs, Monse, and Tibi for confirmation. If you’re bored of soft, hazy easter egg colors, then take a styling cue from our book and inject a little life into your wardrobe with a few green pieces.
The thought of wearing the leafy shade might make you uneasy, but you don’t have to go straight for the “Kermit” variation. With the right pieces, it’s easy being green.
Statement-making outerwear, like transitional rain coats and trenches, are perfect opportunities to play up your color palette. If you find yourself more partial to blending in with the foliage, we recommend reaching for more subtle pieces like handbags, shoes, or sunglasses to add a pop of the springtime shade to your rotation.
