Kendall Jenner has that enviable ability to stay ahead of the style curve while showcasing a heavy dose of individuality. In 2018 she put Prada’s flame shoes back on the fashion map with just one Instagram post. And the year before? Jenner led a resurgence of over-sized Levi’s teamed with midriff bearing tanks. For 2019, she’s starting off strong with a vivid flash of acid green.
At her family’s festive celebrations, the model shunned the more traditional fern green in favour of a vivid version of the hue. Her Christian Siriano dress – teamed with matching shoes – made for a bold and vivacious statement. Fast-forward to New Year’s Eve, and Jenner donned an acid green boho style top. “Really into green these days,” read Jenner’s caption on the Instagram photo.
In our opinion, the outfit’s highlights came in the form of matching emerald earrings and a strong swipe of green make-up across her eye-lid.
But, the question is, for those not constantly dressing for the flashing lights, how does the trend translate in to real life? Start by considering touches of the hue as opposed to head-to-toe statements. Jewellery, for example, is a sophisticated way to offer a small accent of the colour to any outfit. (Consider a white dress and bright emerald earrings as a sublime start). Shoes, on the other hand, are trickier but make for strong statements. Try teaming a pair of jewelled green sandals with light denim jeans and a simple white tee. The high-low factor will feel cool as opposed to contrived. Finally, be experimental with the type of green you choose. Jenner’s acid tone isn’t for everyone and a sedated version may work in your favour.
