On My Radar – Fresh Green For Spring

123 total views

Spring has arrived with all the exuberant colors that come with it. When Pantone revealed in December that Veri Peri (periwinkle) is their color of the year for 2022, I was thrilled. Sadly, manufacturers didn’t get the memo early, so I’m not finding much of it to buy. What’s I am seeing and loving is fresh green for spring.

My outfit of the week features a gauzy dress I wish I’d discovered before my trip to Mexico. No matter, it’ll be great for the warm summer months ahead.

Color pyscology.org says, “Out of all the colors on the color wheel, green is regarded as the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye. Green symbolizes harmony, tranquility, peace. As a soothing, relaxing color, it enhances stability and endurance. It is most often associated with growth and renewal, and it promotes optimism, hopefulness, and balance.”

BRIGETTE 360 SO SLIMMING PANTS IN ENVY GREEN

Green first hit my radar when I spotted these Brigette 360 pants at my local Chico’s in Envy green. This shade reminds me of “Fair Green” which is from Pantone’s Spring/Summer 2022 London Fashion Week Color Trends. It’s stronger than a pastel and seems neither too warm nor too cool.

My caftan may have been my first fresh green purchase, but it will not be my last. It looks great with black, white, navy, pink, yellow, denim, and on and on. In fact, I’m discovering that green makes a great base color to build many outfits around.

I went hunting for more fresh green for spring and here’s what I found:

KELLY GREEN RIVIERA SLIM PANTS

The Loft has lots of kelly green this spring.

J. Crew’s latest spring collection is out with lots of faded pistachio.

LACE-UP HOODIE

J. Jill has some green papaya this spring which I’m loving the look of.

No matter the name, green seems less common in many of our wardrobes and this may be the season to change that. There’s a flattering undertone and intensity for every one of us.

Is green a color you reach for and which shades appeal to you?

FYI- Ulta is having their 21 Days of Beauty Sale and today, some Bare Mineral lipsticks are on sale.

Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
