There is something about the colour green that I love, always have; as soon as I put something on that’s green I instantly feel happier.
Now with this season being all about bold colours and colour blocking, there’s plenty of opportunity to use green, particularly as a contrasting colour. It works with yellow, coral pink, blue… you name it and of course with the more classic darker colours like black and grey if you want a smarter, more classic look.
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite’s here that are really easy to wear and to accessorise. Coloured jeans are really in right now; these ones are very flattering as they are a skinny fit. You could honestly wear them with anything but here I’ve teamed them up with a honey coloured pussy bow blouse (a big trend at the moment) and dress them up with these gorgeous Ella platform stilettos. You could really strut your stuff dressed like this; cool but understated.
Pussy bow blouse £14, Green coloured skinny jeans £16, Ella shoes peet toe stiletto with corsage £25
I love this dress and it’s really flattering, nipping in at the waist giving a very feminine shape. Accessorised with a glitzy or sparkly belt would work really well with this and would be great to wear to a wedding or a fancy evening do with a pair of killer black stilettos. Do your hair in a bee-hive if you can, it’ll add even more glamour to the look. But if you put a chunky black belt on this, add a tailored jacket, thick black tights and a heeled ankle boot; this would transform into the perfect office outfit. A very versatile little number!
Belted green ponte shift dress £22, Roll sleeve blazer £22, F&F signature luxury wool tights £6, Heeled ankle boot £18, Large lace clutch bag £8, Ella shoes patent peep toe platform shoe £22
Boat necked tops are very flattering and this soft cotton one is the kind of thing you can wear over a pair of skinny jeans for a casual look. Or you can dress it up with a simple black pencil skirt, dark tights and a pair black leather peep toe court shoes. Opt for chevron pattern tights and some chunky beaded necklaces to give extra impact to the outfit!
Boat neck top £4, F&F ponte skirt £10, Chevron pattern tights £3.50, Moda in Pelle embellished black leather peep toe court shoe £89.95, Large suedette buckle waist belt £5
Do you dare to be different? This brightly coloured scoop neck top is not for the shy wall flower however, it’s a fantastic piece for rocking the bold colours trend especially for the modest sum of £4. Team up with a pair of coloured jeans, I’d go for the raspberry pink ones for a true colour block look and top it all off with a blue unstructured blazer. Worn with a pair of pale coloured, court shoe heels will dress this up or a pair of pumps will make it look more casual.
F&F scoop neck top £4, Coloured skinny jeans £14, F&F limited edition unstructured blazer £28, Moda in Pelle embellished white leather peep toe court show £89.95
