Green is not for everyone and you don’t have to stick with this colour, because as we’ve seen, red, blue and grey provide some lively alternatives.

Before we look at the ways you can incorporate the colour green into your vintage wardrobe, let’s take a fun look at what green really means….

Green AW 2015-The psychology…

We’re told that green is the colour of harmony and balance and when you have the two we’re talking a sweet equilibrium and a balancing of the heart and mind.

Although autumn and winter sounds the death knell to the leaves on the trees and many creatures are hiding in their lairs for a spot of winter hibernation, green represents renewal, birth and the coming of spring.

So while you’re feeling the nip of winter on the horizon, those green shirts and pants should help to remind you that spring is only around the corner…well a few months away then.

Let green help you go stress-free

We should be feeling relaxed and renewed when we’re in green, taking us away from the stresses of daily living.

It’s also described as a positive colour that can help encourage us to be more loving and nurturing.So you can feel fashionably vintage, nurturing AND calm and relaxed. Well, I’m convinced.

Who can wear green and what with?

You can combine green with other colours such as blue (great!), and red which is also great, because both these colours are in this season.Emerald green will combine beautifully with other shades and as khaki is in this winter, you’ll be able to combine them well with each other.

Of course, it also depends on how much you love green and how much you think you can wear in one outfit.

Green AW 2015-Will it suit you?

While dark and fairer skins can wear green well, olive skin may not suit it.

Although as a fellow red head I avoided green for years, I can wear it now with confidence and having pale skin makes it really work for me.

For some reason all parents felt it incumbent upon themselves to dress redheaded children from head to toe in green.

So in time I rebelled against it, however it can look really good, especially darker and more khaki shades of greens.
