St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and instead of showcasing last year’s worn out t-shirt, consider celebrating more fashionably! My picks for the color of the month are from all around the web, and are a few pieces I’ve had my eye on! How do you feel about wearing the color green? I love any shade from emerald to mint and everything in between!
1. Emmy Cutout Dress in Green, Nasty Gal
On the very first row under the “clothing” link for Nasty Gal, their silky green dress with sleek cut outs make a perfect tea-time dress! Pairing this dress with spring pastels or a pair of Jefferey Campbells for a nighttime look would be perfect. I’ve just recently ordered a dress from NG, and they have the most delightful customer service and delivery. My dress was shipped from California to Ohio in 3-4 days!
2. Tie-ny Dancer Green Top, Lulu’s
This website is always a fan favorite, and one of my most frequent personal online browsing spots. With tons of new arrivals in green, I stumbled upon this charming blouse with cut out shoulders and embroidered lacy appliques and a tie waist! I picture this top to be appropriate vacation wear if you’re looking to win best dressed on the beach. Have you ever ordered from Lulu’s? If so, how was your experience? I’m looking forward to making a few purchases this spring!
3. Feeling Pine Flat, ModCloth
How adorable is ModCloth? Every time I visit this site (at least 5 times a week) I find the cutest vintage clothing and accessories. Maybe I’m a bit biased, seeing as this e-tailer is based in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I’m never disappointed with ModCloth’s selections. The Feeling Pine Flat especially caught my eye with it’s gold buckle fixture and faux suede. I’ve always loved flats with a “secure ankle” because I can wear them with dresses and shorts, but also with skinny jeans for added character. ModCloth suggests pairing this colored flat with flared skirt or a cap sleeved blouse. Brilliant!
Having previously worked for this wonderful company in the past, I always revert back to the timeless, bold pieces of Anthropologie! I think this pair of cropped denim is the most perfect green garment to add to your closet. Even though most of the pieces in the new arrivals collection can be a bit pricey, it’s always worth it to make a trip to the store for some feminine finds! What colors would you pair these jeans with? They also come in yellow, which I would pair with more neutral shades and a pop of red if I could.
I hope these pieces inspired you to break free from typical SPD outfits. Everyone will love your touches of green, and wearing them will definitely make you feel festive! As we welcome the warm weather here in Kent, Ohio, I look forward to seeing more color trends on campus. We encourage you to let Fashion Blitz know what you will be wearing this Saturday, whether it be on the beach or at home!
