A Good Match | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

The color of this year is Greenery, says Pantone, Institute of Colors.
Greenery includes green foliage, vegetation, undergrowth, underbrush, plant life, flora, herbs and green vegetables. Often people associate colors with holidays. It’s OK to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day, but not any other time, many people think this way. The other day, I heard a friend saying she would feel a potted plant if she wore green. OK, green is not her color and many feel the same. It’s hard to dispel this myth, when it is inculcated in people’s mind that green clashes with their skin tone, corroborated by expressions such as “green with envy”- all these beliefs contribute to keep green color away from the wardrobe. Green is a good match to many colors and I will prove it.

First, I suggest not to wear green around the face if it feels that uncomfortable, wear it at the bottom or as accessories.
Second, mixing colors is an art and a fun art. If you really want to mix your own green and create original combinations, just remember that green is a secondary color made with blue and yellow. By introducing some yellow into green, the result is avocado and by adding more of the blue to the yellow the result is turquoise. Avocado and turquoise are good match with silver, cream, gold, black, brown and even rust.

I have composed two combinations, one for spring-summer and one for fall season. Both combinations are easy to wear, casual-elegant and classy, perfect to leisure around or for work.
Don’t tell me green is a difficult color, these are a good match anyone can wear.
