No, I’m not talking about the town in Wisconsin, but instead how the color green is the symbol of spring that we all recognize and appreciate. But, how many of us appreciate this color as a fashion statement? Green is tricky for a lot of people to wear. But let’s break down the components of that shade just a bit. Blue + Yellow = Green. When looking at items for your wardrobe, green doesn’t have to mean bright Leprechaun color, unless that’s what you’re drawn to. In reality there is quite a spectrum of shades in the green family that can be very user friendly—from pastel-bluish green, to yellow- green and, of course lots of other variations.
If you are at all wary of sporting this springtime shade, opt for a new-to-you handbag, or possibly shoes or other accessories from your local Goodwill. As you’ll see by my slideshow below, I have used photos taken at New York Fashion Week to illustrate the breadth of color, and even pattern that can encompass the green family. You’ll also see items that I spied while out shopping at the Goodwill store in my neighborhood.
Goodwill does a great job of grouping like colors and tones on the racks of their well-organized stores. That makes it easy to spot a shade you may want to add to your wardrobe.
Now that the days are longer and the sun is shining brighter, why shouldn’t you add some color to what you wear? Stop by a Goodwill store soon,—you might just find the perfect shade of green to inspire and awaken your wardrobe for the spring and summer to come at a fraction of the cost of retail. What could possibly be any greener than reducing, reusing, and recycling? That's why it's the Goodwill motto!
