Style Tip: Green With Style Envy (Happy St. Patrick’s Day!)

Green street style dello russo

If you don’t want to get pinched today, you should probably be wearing something green. But we understand that this bright hue may not be for everyone, and some might even believe it is reserved for the more whimsical of us. But fear not, from a sleek peacoat on Olivia Palermo to a cool moto jacket on Chiara Ferragni, here is some street style to help jog your inspiration (and hopefully bring you the luck of the Irish)!

To find out your style type, take our style type quiz.

To find out what hue of green will look the most flattering on you, reference the color palettes in our book “Life In Color: The Visual Therapy Guide to the Perfect Palette” 



Olivia Palermo looks super sleek in this tailored green peacoat. Style it with a pair of white jeans this spring for a fresh look.

Green coat street style

Pair a clean, modernist baseline with a statement green coat. Worn over the shoulders for a street style star effect, of course.

Green pencil skirt

Keep it work-appropriate with a jewel-toned pencil skirt, and let the texture–we’re thinking snake, python or alligator–make the statement.  Très chic!


Mira Duma green

A pop of color accessory can instantly update your look. Take inspiration from Russian fashion darling, Miroslava Duma–her emerald oversize chain necklace paired with softer camel hues and textures wins it.

Green is a gorgeous hue to color block with navy as seen in this Burberry number on Nicole Warne. Put on a red lip to complete the jewel-toned look.



Want to channel your inner boho child? Opt for a furry, boxy wheatgrass-colored coat over an earthy baseline of boot cut trousers and a simple sweater.
