trend report: fall 2018 winter greens

August 14, 2018

Have you been getting your full dose of greens every day? We aren’t talking about veggies. We’re talking about one of our favorite new trends, Winter Greens, a healthy dose of leafy hues guaranteed to brighten your day. The verdant nature of these shades brings to mind renewal and possibility—perfect for the ambitious season to come. And the best part? We’re wearing them as neutrals, which means you can match them back to just about anything for some fresh, vibrant color pairings that are more than just interesting to the eye—they’re totally rejuvenating! Discover five green outfits and how to style them, complete with tips from our inimitable Fashion Director, Becky Jantzen, for an energetic new twist on fall colors.

One thing we absolutely adore about this trend is that your greens need not be solid—mix it up with a print! The lush vibes of the Shadow Blouse lend a touch of florals over the sleek, Zip-Back Leggings, then just add the structured silhouette of the Cultured Cardigan, some chic accessories, and you’ve got an exciting new ensemble for the workweek…and beyond!

Featured Items: Shadow Blouse, Zip-Back Legging, Cultured Cardigan, Black Pearl Heritage Necklace

Add this to your list of surprising new couples: olive and icy blue! Forget what you think you know about this seemingly earthy neutral: the new olive is bright, lively, and perfect for a sunny fall day. Couple the graphic Keepsake Blouse with a classic pair of blues and top it all off with the sharp Aerial Cardigan.

Fall’s must-have sweater is rich, cozy, and totally head-turning. Embrace this season’s Better Together feels with a dazzling cowl-neck knit that’s as comfy as it is enticing. Pair back to our Skinny Cord for extra texture, and make sure to reach for suede booties on your way out the door.

When it comes to this new trend, it’s so easy being green! Reach for the delicate olive hue of the Reveal Tee as a neutral anchor against the bold plaid print of the Pastime Skirt and Jacket—a kind of modish high-low twist that makes a powerful statement.

For a sassy, surprising twist, reach for this year’s must-have remix: the Get-Together Sweater! One part sweater, one part blouse, two parts fabulous—this dazzling piece of mixed media is our favorite new way to rock the green trend. Keep the attention on your top with a simple pair of slim jeans, then add stunning pumps in matching emerald for an over-the-top take.

With jeans and a tee for a casual look paired back to a skirt and pumps for a sophisticated take, wearing greens as neutrals means your options are nearly endless!
