Pretty sure that before Pantone announced the colour of the year, green is not exactly the top pick of many when it comes to fashion choices. (Well, unless you have a peculiar thing for the colour. That is another story for another time.) Same here. Though I do like green as a colour – especially emerald green (on velvet to be more specific) – but somehow never seemed to be working it into my wardrobe purposely. It has a lot to do with the fact that it is not regular enough to come across a perfect piece in a perfect shade of green which compliments my asian skin tone. Also probably the reason why many of us tend to shy away from anything in bright green – the scariest kind of green if you ask me. Trust me, I had witnessed many failed attempts before. When you have to think twice before taking on that bright-green challenge, then it is usually a good idea not to.
To still catch that on-trend boat of Pantone’s colour, military green is always the safest bet to incorporate some greenery into the wardrobe. It goes seamlessly along with your other neutral pieces, while adding a bit of freshness to the palette. And with safari inspired style being so stylishly ageless in fashion, there is really no reason to say no to a timeless military jacket. There is just this thing about safari style that I find so chic, yet can be so easily pulled off by almost everyone. A good military jacket, no doubt, falls into the spring staple group next to your denim jackets, trench coats, and long cardigans. I just love that I can casually throw on mine to add some instant cool edge with almost everything – thanks to the weather still being shifty here for layering. Time to jump right on that green wagon and march out in full force!
