HOW TO STYLE THIS SEASON’S IT COLOUR
By Talitha Ward
From Daniel Lee to Pantone, the fashion authorities have spoken and, if their word is anything to go by, green is the it colour this Autumn Winter. If you like to keep your finger on the seasonal pulse or simply love experimenting with colour, keep reading for our fave pieces for the AW trend.
If Pantone’s predictions are anything to go by, we will all be donning green this Autumn Winter. Many attribute the trend to Daniel Lee, the just-departed Bottega Veneta creative director, after it’s unmissable feature in his SS21 show. Since then, high street and sustainable brands alike have spoilt us for choice with a plethora of shades - from mint hues to vibrant limes and deep grass tones.

If there is one way to own a trend, it’s to go all out. Bold looks can seem intimidating, but we love how a monochromatic set does all the work for you. No one does monochromatic better than Aggi. The Lauren Green Flash Blouse looks straight off the runway. Made from regenerated cotton in a trendy cut and finished with an intricate keyhole and tie detail, it is a showstopper piece all on its own. We paired it with the Faye Green Flash Skirt to elevate it even further. With a high slit and a cut out on the hip, this bold piece will have you turning heads wherever you go. The brilliant green of this two-piece makes for an iconic statement that can take you from an event to a night on the town. A pair of strappy heels, like The Venus heels by Ganor Dominic, nod to the tie detail of the blouse and effortlessly finish off the look.
Nothings says chic like a pair of wide leg trousers. They are a true closet staple and, being trans-seasonal, make for a great sustainable investment. We love the Rebecca Total Eclipse Pants by Aggi. The perfectly placed pleats add high-end detail to this classic piece, and with the subtly hidden pockets they truly are the perfect trouser. A good knit is the epitome of chic, timeless fashion and easily levels up an outfit. Cinta The Label’s Cosima Knit is a luxe take on a sweater vest, elevated with scalloped frills and made from 70% recycled wool! To add an element of edge, we always go for a leather jacket. We love everything about The Letter’s Biker Jacket, including the gold hardware and, of course, it’s emerald green hue. Juxtaposing different textiles, like knit with leather, is the easiest way to stylize a look. Slip on your favourite pair of boots for an edgy yet chic aesthetic.
Experimenting with trends is all about having fun, interpreting them in your own way and pairing them with your style staples. A t-shirt is arguably one of the most foundational elements of any wardrobe and we are undeniably partial to a great one. The Dylan Joel SS20 Print T-Shirt is made in collaboration with artist, Jake Vella, and screen-printed in the UK. We chose to pair this unique piece with the Lila Skirt by Alyda. Cut on the bias from an ethical satin fabric in a dreamy pistachio green shade, it is the ultimate slip skirt. A t-shirt, midi-skirt combo is one of our go-to’s and effortlessly contrasts the classic and the contemporary. Speaking of go-to’s, a Trash Planet chunky trainer never goes amiss. Our pick would be the 920 in White to perfectly complete this trifecta of timeless and playful pieces.
Contrary to what Instagram would have us believe, trends can be subtle. Whether you like to mix it up in-between statement looks or prefer to steer clear of bright hues altogether, we’ve got you covered. A classic blouse, like the Alyda Lou Shirt, is the perfect place to start. The muted shade of green quietly nods to the trend but it’s elongated cuffs add an element of interest to it’s simple cut. Pairing any trend with a neutral is the easiest way to draw less attention to it. We chose the Rebecca Cloud Dancer Pants by Aggi for their brilliant white shade and pleated wide leg detail. To round up this outfit, we love a black boot, like the Lamperti Milano Alcibiades in Black. A black shoulder bag, like the Vegetal Ben Bag in Charcoal, would perfectly complete this low-key take on the green trend.
