How to Wear Color Trends // Sage Green

Hello! If you’ve been with me since the start of the blog, then you know I love to wear color. When I was a kid I would open a box of crayons and simply admire the rainbow of color in front of me. As I got older that admiration seeped to my wardrobe, beauty collection and home decor. There a very few colors I shy away from as I find most colors to be beautiful So that’s why I wanted to start this monthly series on the blog where feature one of the season’s trending colors and three ways to wear it.

You may be thinking that the best color to start with is Pantone’s color of the year; and you’re probably right. Unfortunately, I currently don’t own anything coral in my Winter wardrobe and have been trying really hard to stick to my “No-Buy January” resolution (it has been HARD). Instead I wanted to showcase a color that’s been popping up on a lot of influencers and is very wearable during the last months of Winter (because it’s not getting any warmer on the East Coast right now). And that color is Sage Green.

Green, in general, is going to be a huge color trend this year (forest, emerald, olive, neon) but recently I’ve been really drawn to sage. In the past, the color has been exclusively used in home decor. Its loved by those who want a subtle dose of color while maintaining feeling of warmth and serenity. Well the reasons its so loved in the home is the same for its resurgence in fashion. Its a very sophisticated color so you can incorporate into a neutral wardrobe or use it to tone down brighter colors.

Light Blue & Camel

For a casual Friday in the office, I paired this thrifted men’s shirt with light wash denim, a camel blazer and nude heels.

The light blue color of the jeans mimic the color of a clear blue sky while camel and nude pulls in the color of the dirt and rocks that the herb is planted in. Any outfit variation of these three colors will look beautiful.

In terms of makeup, I find brown and gold tones best with this combination.

Since blue is analogous to green on the color wheel, navy is great alternative to black.

For the accessories, I balanced the cool colors with gold to introduce warmth to the outfit. Since my skin tone is yellow and therefore more warm, it’s important I add some warmer colors when I’m wearing primarily cooler tones (like blue & green). However, if you’re someone who prefers to wear silver jewelry, then adding accents of grey and silver will work beautifully for you!

Yellow & Olive

This is my wild card combination as the last two were quite subdued. And it’s my favorite of the three! Pulling inspiration from nature, the sun is a plants best friend. So naturally (see what I did there?🤓 ), yellow and green are perfect for each other.

If you’re not comfortable wearing bold yellow pants (I understand), you can incorporate yellow in your accessories like a bag or shoes and wear olive in a bigger piece. That will create a more monochrome look with a fun pop of color.
