Our colors for today were green and black so we’ve decided to do a green and black outfit ideas post.

We think black is one of the best color to wear with green. It tones down the green, especially if it’s a very bold and/or very bright shade of green.

There are other colors that go nicely with green of course, but we don’t think you can ever go wrong pairing black with green. Well, we should probably amend that as it clearly depends on what you’re wearing with what.

Our first green and black outfit idea pairs a green Diane Von Furstenberg dress with black Saint Laurent pumps, a black Saint Laurent clutch and a black Jil Sander navy coat.

We’re thinking this outfit would work best for an early evening affair that requires some dressing up, but nothing too fancy. Not a ballgown type affair but something semi-formal in the kind of company where the ladies dress more modestly. Or it could be worn to work with a more appropriate bag.

2Green and black outfit ideas – Look #2

For our second look we have paired a black Proenza Schouler Off-the-shoulder tweed top with a Thakoon Kelly Green Wool Boucle Flared Hem Skirt. For footwear we’ve chosen a pair of Saint Laurent knee high boots in black suede and for outerwear we’ve chosen a Giambattista Valli black metallic jacquard coat. This look is accessorized with a cute Charlotte Olympia Cactus Crossbody bag, a Vicky Davies Green Tourmaline Gold Ring, a pre-owned 1970s David Webb Green Enamel Gold Bracelet, emerald and diamond stud earrings, diamond gold and Chrome Diopside necklace, and a pre-owned Chanel Gripoix glass ad rhinestone bracelet.

We’re not quite sure to what type of affair this outfit would make a good choice for wearing. Something dressy. Definitely an evening affair.
