How to Wear Green

Mar 08, 2013

It ain’t easy being green, or wearing green for that matter, but with our fave Irish-inspired holiday coming up it’s time to step up your St. Patrick’s Day style. Shades of jade are popping up in stores and on the streets everywhere, so check out these sharp looks that will make your friends see green (literally!).

Spring Stripes

Stripes are back in style, especially green and blue rugby stripes on dresses and shirts. Rugby stripes are a great casual look; they don’t scream green but  show your support for St. Pat’s!

Mint Magic

Mint madness has swept the market, and you can find anything from shoes and bags to dresses and shirts in this green-blue hue! A fresh, delicate color that is great for spring, make sure mint makes it into your wardrobe this season.

Sham Rock Out

Wearing green and looking glamorous doesn’t mean you necessarily have to spend a lot of green! Take your outfit to the next level by painting your nails in jewel tones and glitter green!

Forest Fresh

Spring may be here, but that’s no guarantee that the weather will be warm – in fact, spring is known for its rain showers since they bring May flowers, right? It’s all part of the natural cycle of life, so be prepared for nature’s worst with some waterproof wellies in a fresh forest green or an army-colored rain coat.

Jeans: Go Green!

One of the hottest trends this year is denim in dynamic colors, and green is a great way to stand out.  Slim-fitting colored denim cropped at the ankle is a great spring look, and is easy to pair with flowing shirts and fun flats.

We Love: Green jeans from H&M,$ 19.95

Thanks I actually might try that but she is really stubborn and will not take no for an answer I have tried just ignoring her but he will kick, hit, or punch me to get attention. my parents also don't like her bcuz she is bossy. I also have to go to summer camp with her for the next 2 weeks and w have to be buddies for it so i think i might die

I would drop her for two main reasons. One - guilt by association. Meaning people might be afraid to be your friend because they think you might bully them too like she does.  Two - Losing her "only friend" as you say may make her realize she needs to make a change on how she treats people. In any case, do it nicely if you do! HTH!
