The colour of eternal life, beauty and harmony, green became one of the jewels in a rainbow crown of many spring 2011 collections. The choice of shades from the deeply rich emerald, malachite and jade to light and delicate jasper and chrysoprase created a multitude of colour combinations. So perfect for summer, the hue also made its way into autumn fashions turning green summer silks and buttery soft leather into luxurious transitional pieces.

Nature can be an endless source of inspiration for finding the right colours that create a beautiful synergy with green tones. Just look at the flowers and compliment your greens with soft rose, white or deep blue, or be bold by combining it with yellow, orange, pink or red for the striking colour-blocks. I also feel that adding a touch of gold jewellery and tan accessories brings the best out of any shade of green - something worth bearing in mind.

  2. Green is one of my favourite colours and your pic selection is great. I'm really glad that this FW season, we will see more of this 'gem shades' like ruby and bright oranges.

  3. You bring out the best of every colour you speak about in terms of fashion. And green IS one of my absolute favourites. I completely agree: paired with golden jewelry or tan accessories is just perfect. That second image is gorgeous and the Hermes outfit with the corset over the sweater dress, that's an idea! Have a beautiful day, my dear Little Rus! xoxo

  9. I have green eyes, so I like wearing green because it really makes my eyes pop when I do, and people stop and give me compliments. :D

  10. As I get older - hmm, why am I thinking about that - I find myself liking green more and more. I am excited about the fall upcoming petrol blueish green. Have already started raiding vintage stores for that. Now is the time to hit - before the masses read about the hue in the glossies (one of 'Susu tricks'... but you know these things already;)

    Are you safe where you are in Londontown? Have had you on 'me mind', dear.

    Love,

  13. I always told myself that green would not work with pale skin. Quite the contrary I found that this colour suits me quite well, and brings out the auburn in my hair.. but it is still quite hard to find much striking green colour in the shops I think. Lots of lovely inspiration here.
