Style Theory: Over the last few weeks I have been drawn to all different shades of green, from khakis to bottle greens. Green looks great worn with my two colours of the season navy and berry, add green into the mix for Autumn/Winter colour perfection..
This Mulberry ad made me realise this was the colour I was missing from my wardrobe. I have now have a berry bag and am now searching for a bottle green sweater to go with it.
Green looks great with berry, navy, camel and greys, it is such a versatile colour, here are a few options available on the high street now which will make people 'green' with envy..
|Me + Em Fine Stitch Box Jumper £88|
A super fine sweater, this would look great with skinny jeans and a pair of berry, heeled red ankle boots and bag to match...
These boots would fit the bill..
|River Island Boots £85|
This Mulberry-esque bag from M&S is a cheaper alternative to the bag in the Mulberry above but is really gorgeous leather quality and would look lovely with a green poloneck.
|M&S Across Body Bag £69|
Some alternative sweaters and blouses..
|Whistles Padded Neck Jumper £115|
|Zara Lace Collar Shirt £19.99|
This is a beautiful dark green colour, I would tuck into a pair of skinny flares and wear with pointed heeled, berry boots.
|H&M Knitted Jumper £19.99|
This would suit my Autumn/Winter uniform perfectly, long jumper, leather leggings and trainers. Sling a berry bag across for a AW14 look.
|Mango @John Lewis £19.99|
I prefer a baggier poloneck than super tight as they are more flattering on me, I like the tight collar of this but the wider cut of the jumper. Sling this on with a pair of black skinnies and some slouchy beige boots.
|H&M Frill Jumper £59.99|
I know I have already featured this jumper but it is still an obsession and I am going to try to track this down in store with 20% off discount card (on December's Glamour magazine to be used in store only)
|Zara Crepe Dress £39.99|
Simple but stunning this crepe dress is an ideal alternative to the LBD, wear with black opaque tights, black pointed flat shoes and a deep berry coat for a stunning Autumn/Winter look.
|Traffic People ALine Skirt £61|
Wear this gorgeous A-line skirt with a navy poloneck and berry knee high boots.
|Topshop Ripped Utility Trousers £36|
I have been looking for an alternative to jeans for the schoolrun and I think these could fit the bill. Wear them with trainers for the schoolrun, then for an evening out pair with a navy cashmere sweater and a pair of leopard print heels.
|Zara Hooded Checked Wool Cape £89|
This check cape would add drama to any outfit.
|Zara £29.99 - In store only|
I found these in my local Zara this week, they are a fab khaki colour and look so gorgeous on. Unfortunately, these were a size too small..I am still searching!
For the schoolrun, a meeting them a quick run around the shops..
Breton: Petite Bateau
Jeans: Topshop Baxter
This weekend involves lots of playdates, birthday parties and hopefully a quick trip to the shops for those cargo trousers that will make my weekend that bit more comfy..as weekend-wear should be!
Would love to hear your thoughts and comments on shades of green, do you have a need for a little emerald in your wardrobe?
Until next time Frances xxx
