Some of my clients enjoy wearing pastel and midtone soft greens, like seafoam, moss, sage, and mint. Either as solids, or as part of a pattern. Often it’s because it picks up the colour of their eyes. Some of these soft greens are more blue than others, but we are not talking about light blue. It is definitely a green.
On to some some outfit inspiration.
1. Subtle Approach
Seafoam and sage green look great with black or navy, and white. Think of ways to combine those colours in an outfit if it’s your cup of tea. Here a black sweater is patterned with a seafoam and white design. White jeans pick up the white in the top. Black boots, and black and white striped socks match the pattern of the sweater. You could complete the outfit with a black or white bag, and black jacket or coat. Sub the black for navy if you prefer dark blue.
2. Light Neutrals
Soft greens can look lovely with light neutrals like whites, creams, pearl greys, beiges, and tans. Here, a pair of seafoam leather pants is combined with a tan turtleneck. A complemented duo of cream bag and flats complete the look and pull the vibe together. I’d have thrown in cream boots to keep my ankles warm, and an oatmeal coat for insulation. The black hair of the model does a striking job of adding high contrast to the outfit.
3. Bright Green and Soft Blue
Blues and greens are infamously good together, and this outfit is one example. A pair of delicate and soft celery green wide leg pants is combined with a pastel patterned blue and green mesh turtleneck. There’s a hint of lavender in the pattern too. A Kelly green cropped jacket tops the lot, adding punch to the pastels. Slate blue shoes match the blue in the top. Cream boots can work as well.
And a fashion-forward layered look to end with. A white shirt dress is combined with a greyed green box pleated mini skirt. The dress is much longer than the skirt, thereby showcasing the layers. The shirt dress is buttoned to the top and completed with a grey classically knotted tie. A soft green shrunken blazer tops the lot, thereby adding a third tier. Spectator pumps in white and a similar soft greyed green that perfectly match the rest of the outfit are the shoes of choice. Dark grey socks worn with the pumps add warmth, and pick up the dark greys in the tie and handbag. Not your everyday outfit!
