How to Wear Green This Season

In winter it’s tempting – and let’s face it, it’s often easier – to reach for a failsafe colour palette of jet black, inky navy and slate greys. But if you’ve got a penchant for bold colour, shades of green – from sherbety mint tones to almost neon lime hues – can be a great way to brighten up your winter wardrobe. If you’re ready to work the lush shade into your wardrobe, here’s everything you need to know about how to wear green this season.

Clash Green with Complementary Colours

The thought of pairing red and green together might scream conjure up Christmas tree vibes, but green is in fact, the perfect colour to clash with complementary shades such as red. Avoid looking overly Christmassy by pairing golden greens, mint shades and deep emeralds with orange and rust-toned shades of red. Still not convinced? Nothing complements your favourite shade of green like pink does.

Start with Khaki and Emerald Shades of Green

While the daring fashionistas out there might like to reach for out-there shades of lime and fluorescent green from the get-go, shades such a khaki and emerald are a great way to experiment with green. There’s really not a lot that the two hues of green don’t go with and a trench in khaki or woollen coat in emerald are two winter wardrobe essentials that you’ll wear year after year.

Accessories are Great in Green

If in doubt, statement accessories in a verdant hue of green are a great way to dip your toes in the water. We’re obsessed with these strappy Wandler ‘Yara’ heels in emerald green that you can shop right here and Gucci’s Sylvie 1969 handbag, in deep, dark green which you can get shipped straight to your door from the New Zealand online boutique.

Take a look at all the inspiration you need for how to wear green this season.

11 Adele Hair Moments We Absolutely Love

From her signature vintage bob to long blonde curls, take a look at our favourite Adele hair looks and fashion moments over the years. 

Showing she still embracing far longer locks than ever before, Adele turned up at an NBA game this week sitting court-side with rumoured new love interest Rich Paul, an agent for basketball players including LeBron James.

The singer, who isn’t seen in public often, looked stunning, wearing her hair smooth and straight with subtle face-framing highlights. It was another significant moment in her hair evolution that continues to inspire, the Grammy winning singer further stepping away from the  classic-but-with-a-retro-twist look she previously favoured.

Back in August 2020 Adele showed off her initial departure from her once signature bob cut, wearing relaxed long, tumbling golden curls on Instagram, as she celebrated BeyoncĂ©’s visual album, Black Is King.

Adele shocked fans with her slimmed-down figure in a photo shared during Christmas 2019. It wasn’t just her figure that caught our attention. Her collarbone-length hair in big, golden curls was the perfect 50s glam look.

The singer matched her luscious blonde locks with a bold red lip and cat eye to pull off the ultimate red carpet glamour look at the 2012 Grammys.

For her 31st birthday, Adele styled her hair in a 1920s fashion to go with her Great Gatsby-themed party. She rocked a teased hair style with a vintage dress and shimmering jewellery in true 1920s flapper fashion.

Adele donned a 60s-inspired updo when she nabbed the Best Original Song award at the 2013 Golden Globes. The modern twist on the beehive hair was full of volume and bold bangs.

The singer opted for a softer hairstyle at the 2016 Grammy Awards, with a subtle balayage and fresh-cut lob that made her stand out amongst the dramatic red carpet looks.

At Halloween 2017, Adele showed off her quirky and eccentric style in a glitzy outfit and glam look. Her green gown embellished with gold sequins was matched with striking glittery eyeshadow and wild, teased hair. “I can’t with this hair and make up,” said the singer.
