With St. Patrick’s Day behind us and Earth Hour coming up this weekend (27 March), we’ve put together a list of the hottest green fashion items to (literally) go green this year. From lime and chartreuse to emerald and forest green, here’s how to rock the latest colour trend for SS21:
Jacques Marie Mage Squeeze sunglasses
Jacques Marie Mage’s emerald green Squeeze sunglasses are created in collaboration with Universal Music Enterprise and draw inspiration from a style sported by musician Nico formerly of The Velvet Underground. Handcrafted in Japan in see-through green acetate, these shades will go great with retro-fitted tailoring.
This lime-green bag is from Natasha Ramsay-Levi’s final collection at Chloé. It features a Kiss top handle, which is crafted to resemble the silhouette of a pair of lips, while the long, detachable shoulder strap ensures you can carry it handheld or cross-body.
This cropped cross-body knit and matching buttoned knit skirt is a bold yet comfortable choice, and a great way to ease back into normal dressing after months of lockdown. Crafted from emerald-green and black mélange yarns, the top also features a sweetheart neckline and close-fitted sleeves. Pair your ensemble with neutral footwear (pumps for a dressier occasion or lace-up sandals for the day).
There is nothing run-of-the-mill when it comes to Nadine Ghosn’s label. Her fine jewellery designs have been spotted on stylish celebs such as Beyonce and Alicia Keys, and her latest collection, Build Blocks, is a nostalgic and fun take on our beloved childhood game of Lego. We have our eyes set on the Bare Block Ring in Jade and a Green Forest Topaz. And, just like the building blocks, stacking is definitely encouraged.
Spotted on everyone from Hailey Bieber to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, this Bottega Veneta bag is a statement bag that can go with just about anything. From sweatshirts and bike shorts to a summer-friendly slip dress, this bag is the perfect finishing touch for any day or night look. Looking for an easy way to wear it? Keep your outfit monotone to ensure that the bag is your standout accessory.
If bright green dresses and accessories may prove too much for your wardrobe, a fun pair of tie-dye socks from Suicoke may just be the way to ease into this colour trend. Sport them with chunky sandals and a slip dress for the weekend, or wear with sweatpants and trainers for a fun WFH look.
Drawing inspiration from nature and its elements, Nanushka’s contemporary ethos of comfortable, confident dressing is all that we stand for right now. This sea-washed finish shirt is made from wrinkled fabric with a subtle metallic sheen. Pair this twist-front top with vegan leather trousers from the same label or a pair of high-waisted denim for an elevated, everyday look.
Barely-there sandals continue to reign in SS21, and we have our eyes set on By Far’s Nayla sandals from Lane Crawford. Slip into summer in these lime, square-toed sandals with a sculpted heel. Pair with anything from warm-weather tailoring to slit-hem leggings and a cropped T-shirt.
Amsterdam-based musician Lieselot Elzinga is the creator behind her eponymous label, so expect dramatic, avant-garde silhouettes in retro colour-combinations and patterns. Hit refresh this spring with this bold, asymmetrical ballon sleeve blazer dress while keeping your accessories in soft shades of pastels or neutrals.
