It’s not easy being green. At least, it wasn’t, before the fashion community got their manicured nails into it. Green has received the star treatment and is now pegged as ‘THE’ colour for Autumn/Winter ’16.
The spotlight is particularly on khaki, and there’s little doubt as to why – military inspirations are never too far from the catwalk. As is the nature with high fashion, these trends will peter down to ready-to-wear and then to the high street, where far more accessible and affordable alternatives can be found.
And speaking of accessible and affordable, here at STYLEWORX we’ve put together a look based on the upcoming trend, ensuring that you’ll be the first to wear what will undoubtedly be the dominant trend of Autumn and Winter.
The meat of this outfit is this ‘Pop Air Caya’ in ‘Light Army’, from Mads Nørgaard. The jumpsuit was and continues to be another darling of the runways, and proves to be a trend with staying power. So, combine that with the up-and-coming green, and you’re on to a winner.
The beauty of this jumpsuit is in its simplicity. The high-cuffed sleeves keep the look light, sharp and pleasing to the eye, working with the belt to create a great silhouette.
You’re actually working with three high fashion motifs with this jumpsuit; not only the jumpsuit and green, but also pastel. The ‘Light Army’ colouring straddles the trend of this summer (pastels) with the upcoming trend (green, in all its shades). This means that you can wear this jumpsuit throughout the year and still look like it’s fresh of whatever the season’s catwalk is.
Because the jumpsuit is so beautifully simple, these sandals act as the statement piece of the look. The purity of the jumpsuit plays off against the controlled chaos of the sandals perfectly and pull the look together.
