Even more so than the start of most new years, the beginning of a new decade always feels like an era ripe with growth and opportunity. And is there a better way to reflect that potential for growth through your wardrobe than to freshen it up with some gorgeous green hues? We think not. Minty fresh hues. Lush, leafy greens. Jewel-toned teals and turquoises. Subdued army green and olive. We love them all!
Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered to rock the newest color taking front and center in your closet. We’re here to make the official announcement, so take note or get left behind: green is the new black.
Deep Lush Greens
Embrace the luxe nature of the Roaring Twenties 2.0 with the deep, leafy green tones found in a few of our favorite pieces.
The off-shoulder faux suede Jazz dress will soon have your trusty LBD relegated to the back of the closet. The sultry vibe of this sassy little number gives its wearer a gorgeously sleek silhouette that’s sure to turn heads wherever she goes. It’s bound to become your new favorite party dress.
For an equally dramatic look that’s a little more versatile, try Ari on for size. This velour camisole is a nineties throwback that can be dressed up with pumps and a pencil skirt, or dressed down with jeans and a moto jacket. You can’t go wrong with this well-placed pop of ultra-lush color.
If you’re in need of an extra boost of trendy green, grab the Evie bucket bag in this rich emerald hue. It’s vegan friendly, so you can feel good about using this as your everyday go-to purse.
Faded Army Greens
Army green has moved way beyond drab standard-issue military fare. This color feels like it was made for bohemian tops, dresses, and any other hippie-style clothing you can think of. It’s that natural.
Take the vintage style of this lace boho open cardigan, for example. It walks the line between delicate and casual with just a touch of seventies glam. It’s available in 15 different colors (including neon green if that’s your preferred shade), but we think olive is just right for 2020.
For a comfortable choice that screams confident style, you’ll love the Lolli backless boho dress. The ballgown silhouette provides a cool-girl contrast with the linen material for a fun bohemian dress you’ll wear all summer long.
We can’t talk about trendy greens for 2020 without mentioning the crown jewel of the color spectrum: turquoise.
The pretty handkerchief vibe of the Bohemian Dream maxi dress will be the perfect way to rock jewel-toned green all summer long. The button down style and flowy boho skirt will keep you cool when the weather gets hot without sacrificing glamour for comfort. Plus, we love the aztec-inspired pattern in blues, greens, and browns.
Don’t want to wait until the weather gets warm to rock your turquoise? Grab a thermal instead. The Delilah long-sleeved boho shirt is a lovely mix of waffle-knit and chiffon, so you don’t have to choose between keeping cozy and showing off your hippie soul.
For the ultimate hippie style dress, add Alessandra to your wardrobe. The three-quarter sleeves and lace-up neckline will add a double dash of seventies style to your everyday look. Finish it off with a brown belt for a cinched-in waistline to contrast with the floral bell sleeves.
Light Fresh Greens
To embrace the lighter side of green, we recommend opting for a fresh minty shade. It’s a fun, modern take on a hue that’s often on the richer side. You heard it here first: light green will be the color for Summer 2020.
Speaking of which, have you met Scarlett? This ruffled bohemian dress will be your new go-to for a versatile day-to-night look. Pair Scarlett with sandals and a floppy hat for a sweet daytime look. When the sun goes down, just grab a pair of heels and throw your hair up; you’ll be ready to dance the night away.
If you love florals as much as we do, you’re going to fall in love with the Lucie maxi dress. Minty green pairs with pretty purple for a sweet look that will have you grabbing it for every casual occasion this summer.
When only the most comfortable dress will do, Rosie will never let you down. This floral embroidered maxi dress has fun tassels and a vintage style that looks fancier than it feels. Get it in green for a fresh, flouncy look that looks just right with a pair of aviator shades.
Green Is The New Black
