If the thought of wearing army green leaves you with a case of the yawns, you’re not alone. It’s always been a bit too drab and depressing for me, however, I’ve started noticing the little tricks of stylish women who manage to make the shade of military fatigues downright glam, elegant and sexy.
Here she uses a flirty skater skirt in army green to not only show off her legs and a tan, but also adds sexy black strappy sandals…
Using green as a vest she counteracts the drabness with pops of white polka dots and scintillating CZs in her necklace which act as complexion-boosters for the face.
The fit and flair of this dress with ribbing to accentuate an hourglass figure, a circle neck to stay away from the face and frilly shoulders provide enough femininity to ward off the sloppiness that oftentimes accompanies this color.
Adrienne Bailon uses her skin tone and hair color to balance and accentuate this black and green look with matte gold jewelry.
Here Polyvore stylist @johna-cameron uses optic white in a tight knit to add zest to an otherwise toned-down ensemble. Very elegant, don’t you think?
This may sound strange but the key here is to pay attention to the color of the banner moniker on this magazine cover. Adding the hot pink shade of the ELLE letters to your army green ensemble–in the form of jewelry, scarves and handbags–would work wonders toward making Princess Madeleine’s classic trench really pop.
Love her or hate her, the late Joan Rivers was often on the best-dressed list. Here she uses black as an anchor and contrasting color, keeps the drab green away from her face and adds glow with matte gold accessories.
