It is my mission this year to explore some new fashion territory: style an outfit I wouldn’t normally wear, sport an unexpected trend, and wear colors I normally wouldn’t touch. Green is one of those colors. Since I usually have colored hair, I tend to usually buy items in black, white, or grey. But I’m slowly trying to add more color to my wardrobe, and this Diversity Chic installment reminded me that I needed to invest in more green pieces.
For those of you who don’t know what Diversity Chic is, here’s a little tidbit:
“Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.
With green being the Pantone color of the year plus with St. Patrick’s Day landing this month, we just HAD to do a “shades of green” theme! I love that we all chose a different shade to wear. Just goes to show how versatile the color is, and we’re showing you different ways to rock them! To be honest, this theme sent me into a panic. The only other green items I had was this emerald dress, which got some interesting comments because the last time I wore it I also had green hair. It attracted a bunch of “did you match your hair with your dress?” comments, so it’s a tad traumatic to wear. I have a green bomber jacket, which I just wore for another outfit. Tucked away was this Andes mint skater skirt (I honestly don’t know what shade this is, it’s not quite mint and it’s not quite teal) and I knew it HAD to be my shade of green! It’s an old skirt from Charlotte Russe, which I don’t wear much of since it usually clashes with vibrant hair and basically everything else I own. A neck tie blouse works with literally everything though, so I figured this pairing would be hard to mess up!
