Green has often been undermined in popular fashion choices. It just doesn't seem to have the same appeal as pink, blue or red. Many women are hesitant to pick clothing items in solid green, because they've became convinced it doesn't look good on them. Well, if you've tried many different shades , while keeping an open mind, but you've never liked this color on your skin - that's perfectly understandable - stay away from it. However, many women just avoid green under the force of myths claiming that green is incredibly hard to pull of, or that only red-heads look good in it. Well, I don't know where that came from, but such myths are far from reality, so I'm writing this post in attempt to give the color its deserved glory.
Green is the color if life and vitality and research indicates that it has a calming effect on people.
Vibrant green tones are generally recommended for people with 'Autumn' and 'Winter' complexions. Autumn complexion has golden undertones (often brunettes and redheads). Perfect examples of Autumn complexion would be Beyonce, Alessandra Ambrosio, Marishka Hargitay, Isla Fisher, Jessica Alba and the first lady Michelle Obama.
Winter complexion has pink or blue undertones. The skin is often pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Some celebrities who have this type of complexion are Anne Hathawey, Angelina Jolie and Heidi Klum.
Yet, these are only very general suggestions that should never be the only thing to guide you in your choices. As Coco Chanel has said: "The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you!" The only way to find out what looks good on you is trying on and on and on ...
Here are some wonderful items that just enhance the beauty and charm of green tones. If you are one of those people, who've always stood away from green color choices, I hope these pieces inspire to brave into the green palette. If you are already on the Green team, well, just enjoy! =)
