the new nautical: orange and green — insatiable need

how to wear green, part 2: with orange

by Valerie

in fashion,how to wear it

Just because I’m all about green now, doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten my love for orange!

We need not go down the path of a St. Patrick’s Day refugee, here. This series is all about looking at colors in a new way (part 1 was about how to wear green with navy)!

Think of green and orange as a modern, sophisticated take on the nautical look…check it out:

how to wear green, part 2: with orange


Red, white and blue is the obvious, predictable, and expected choice for summer gear. For something a little different, why not orange and green instead?

Add white for a clean and crisp look, and finish off with gold jewelry for a truly nautical effect.

The slim skirt and heels on the left is perfect for a slightly dressy summer affair. Brunch with your inlaws, perhaps. Maybe some team-building thing with your coworkers.

For the weekend, try colored jeans (so very on-trend right now), a pretty scalloped top, and a wide belt. I live in wedge sandals for the summer, but flats would look just as cute with this outfit.

What do you think? Are you willing to update your tried-and-true nautical looks with green?
